Thank you. I've been told by many people (including a professor when I took a social work class in college) that only LCSWs and PhDs can open their own private practices, and I hadn't heard of LPCs or MFTs opening their own practice, but it seems I was at least partly wrong! This is good information to know.
Do you happen to know if there is a table or chart (or even just a list) somewhere of each state's regulations as to who can practice in what context? It seems to vary so much, even between neighboring states.
