It's official - I'm fully licensed in Oregon and Washington!
I started my masters program in counseling back in 2010. After six years of study, supervision, and practice, I am now a fully licensed practitioner in Oregon and Washington.
The road to getting a counseling degree is fairly short - only two or three years post-bachelor's. The journey to getting licensed usually goes much longer. Ultimately, the odyssey to become a better and better clinician never ends. I will never stop training, getting consultation, and striving to develop my skills so that I can be more effective with clients but this week marks a big milestone for my practice.
I hope that full licensure will help me serve more clients more affordably by facilitating insurance participation in treatment I provide.
