Most of our professionals have supervised or developed programs and have advanced from private or public agencies here in Central Kentucky. These are the best providers we can find, and our office pays them well. We guarantee these are the best clinicians you will find and will want to recommend them to your families and friends.
Our office utilizes three main types of professionals currently.
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor or LPCC
A Licensed Psychological Practitioner (LPP) is a mental health professional who has completed at least a minimum of 60 graduate hours of coursework directly related to psychology and that is licensed to practice independently of supervision. An LPP obtains extensive training in psychotherapy with individuals and families and must complete five years (over 10,000 hours) of clinical experience under the guidance and supervision of a psychologist. An LPP is the only master's level mental health worker that is able to provide psychological assessment services as well as providing therapy.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker or LCSW
A simple definition of a licensed clinical social worker is a social worker trained in psychotherapy who helps individuals deal with a variety of mental health and daily living problems to improve overall functioning. A prerequisite for obtaining licensure is a Master’s Degree in Social Work or MSW. Education is not the only requirement. While the number may vary from state to state, the LCSW ordinarily must work close to three thousand hours under the guidance and supervision of a professional.
