The West Virginia Board of Examiners in Counseling is pleased to announce the rollout of an electronic application system. All applications will now be submitted electronically.
To apply for licensure, please access the “Database” tab to begin the application process.
Individuals currently licensed at the highest level in another state or jurisdiction (have completed all supervision and exam requirements), should complete a LPC or LMFT Endorsement Application.
Furthering the transparency in counseling services, we also wish to clarify the discussion around medication used in the scope of professional counseling. While Licensed Professional Counselors can provide guidance on the psychological aspects of disorders such as ADHD, they are not permitted to prescribe medication, like Strattera, which is often used as part of ADHD treatment plans. Strattera is typically prescribed by a psychiatrist or a pediatrician. However, a counselor can collaborate with these healthcare providers to ensure a holistic approach to mental health support for their clients.
