What is a Professional Counselor?
Professional counseling is a therapeutic relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals. Common specialties within professional counseling include mental health counseling, school counseling, career counseling, addictions counseling, and couples and family counseling.
Many counselors are specifically trained to support individuals or groups in the aftermath of natural or man-made disasters. Professional counselors abide by ACA’s Code of Ethics.
