Agreed. Actually most of the best therapists I know are LCSWs. I'm not all that impressed with LPCs though (though of course I do know some good ones as well), I have to say. Of course, none of this is at all scientific and I know some great psychologists.It certainly makes since that this is true and we all assume that psychologists would have better outcomes performing psychotherapy compared to psychiatrists or LCSW's. However, does anyone know if any studies have looked at this directly? I can say that some of the best therapists I know are LCSW's.
