We have determined that endorsement is currently the best route to obtaining more LPC state licenses.
Below is a step-by-step graphic guide to finding LPC endorsement requirements and rules using Pennsylvania as an example.
If you want to be issued an LPC license by endorsement, you will need to understand their licensing requirements. This will help you understand how to complete their LPC endorsement application.
An Example of How to Locate State's Endorsement Requirements.
Our example will be Pennsylvania.
Type in your browser “pennsylvania counseling board” or similar terms like “LPC PA counselor board”. Pretty much any of these searches will provide relevant search results. Let’s go:
Google Search "Pennsylvania Counseling Board"
Locate the .gov State Government Website.
The key is understanding that a link “Licensing” can be located on the State Government website.
Visually scan the page for that link. Or press CTRL F to search the page for ‘Licensing’
Search That Page For Counselor Licensing
Choose "Professional Counselors Regulations"
Scan or Search The Page for "Licensure By Endorsement"
Below you will notice you have now successfully located that state’s requirements for licensure by endorsement.
Locating LPC licensing rules will be slightly different for each state. That task will be easier if you follow this roadmap.
