The Profiles include information that we hope will highlight the work of individual LMHCs and also let members and other visitors to our site become acquainted with the range of expertise and professionalism of LMHCs as mental health service providers. 

Posting categories also encourage sharing information that is educational and informative for mental health counseling graduate students, individuals who are starting out as professionals, and individuals who may be interested in joining the field.
