I am an alternative non-licensed counselor operating under Oregon’s “educational licensing exemption:” ORS 675.825(4)(a), which allows alternative counselors and practitioners to practice legally in Oregon without a license. While I have extensive experience, I am not a psychologist or a psychotherapist. As an non-licensed alternative counselor, I cannot assess, diagnose, or treat mental disorders, as per the DSM-V. I can provide counseling. Each state has different laws. I am not licensed in any state.
The Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists defines alternative counselors and practitioners as, “Those who may have counseling-related training and provide similar services as licensed counselors and therapists but do not meet the educational requirements to qualify for licensure as an LPC or LMFT. Alternative providers do not assess, diagnose, or treat mental disorders.”
