Why Hire a National Certified Counselor

As an employer, you want to hire the most qualified, dependable mental health professionals available. National Certified Counselors (NCCs) have voluntarily met high national standards for the practice of counseling. As well as meeting education and experience requirements, NCCs must pass a stringent national examination.

Holding the NCC certification shows that a counselor is qualified to provide high-quality services to your clients.

Why Should I Hire NCCs?

  • NCCs are held to an enforceable Code of Ethics, providing a proven resource for adjudicating ethical concerns.
  • NCCs must complete continuing education in order to maintain their certification, staying up to date on best practices and ensuring professional development.
  • Employing NCCs demonstrates a commitment to providing the highest quality services for your clients.
  • With NCCs, you can be confident in your staff members’ abilities.
