Why Choose a National Certified Counselor

Choosing a mental health professional for yourself or a family member is an important decision. National Certified Counselors (NCCs) are master’s-level (or higher) mental health professionals who have voluntarily met high national standards in education and experience, and have passed a rigorous examination.

Look for the NCC or National Certified Counselor certification mark, an indicator of qualification and commitment in a professional counselor.
