Pre-Licensed Professional

A pre-licensed professional is an individual who has completed a master's degree in psychology or a related field and is working towards obtaining licensure in their state. These professionals are typically in the process of gaining supervised clinical experience and accumulating the required number of hours of clinical work before becoming fully licensed.

Pre-licensed professionals may hold a variety of job titles, including "registered psychological assistant," "counseling intern," or "therapist associate." They work under the supervision of licensed psychologists, social workers, or other mental health professionals, and they provide mental health services to clients in a variety of settings, including private practices, community mental health centers, hospitals, and schools.

Pre-licensed professionals may provide a range of mental health services, such as conducting assessments, providing therapy and counseling, and creating treatment plans. They may work with individuals, families, or groups and may specialize in certain areas such as trauma, substance abuse, or child and adolescent mental health.

The specific requirements for becoming a pre-licensed professional vary by state and by the type of license the individual is seeking. In general, pre-licensed professionals must complete a specified number of supervised clinical hours and pass a licensing exam in order to become fully licensed. Many pre-licensed professionals also participate in ongoing training and continuing education to maintain their skills and knowledge.

Pre-licensed professionals play an important role in the mental health field, as they provide vital services to individuals and communities while working towards becoming fully licensed and independent mental health practitioners.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
