So what exactly is an LPC-Intern?

  • LPC-Intern stands for Licensed Professional Counselor Intern.
  • LPC-Interns are NOT students.
  • LPC-Interns have completed a Master’s Degree in Counseling, that includes 48 hours of counseling course work, and a minimum of 300 hours of clinical internship experience.
    • Texas State University’s Master’s Degree in Professional Counseling¬† is a 60 hour program.
    • I completed over a thousand hours of clinical internship.
  • LPC-Interns hold a provisional license.
    • This means they have met all the educational and competency requirements to be an LPC in the state of Texas, but now need to accumulate 3000 hours of clinical experience in the field, under the supervision of a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor.
      • This usually takes two to five years.
  • LPC-Interns who complete their supervised hours become Licensed Professional Counselors.
