Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

The LPCC programs are approved by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS.)

Our LPCC program is dynamic and innovative. You will learn the steps in becoming a licensed psychotherapist. After two quarters, you can begin a practicum. The practicum lasts two quarters (approximately six months.) After the MA degree, the students go onto a LPCC Internship. The internship takes place at a non-profit agency. After obtaining 3000 hours of supervision, the student can apply for licensure. When licensed, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor can practice independently.

One major advantage of the LPCC – The Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor program at EIPS is that we do not require a thesis or Dissertation. On the other hand we require a Capstone which is either a position paper or a research proposal. The Capstone is 25-35 pages written in a professional style following APA guidelines.

The classes are small in number which allows more effective communication and learning. The MA is a two year program.

EIPS uses an asynchronous format which allows for great flexibility in terms of time and convenience.
