Licensed professional counselors help clients identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil; seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem; and promote behavior change and optimal mental health.  Counselors possessing the professional counseling license have a wider variety of employment and scope of practice opportunities including private practice and supervision.
