The need for access to high-quality counseling by competent professionals is more important than ever. Counselors continue to provide their services to those in need, and national certification ensures their clients that they are using best practices and are committed to providing the highest standard of care.
Visibility to the public can go a long way toward bridging the gap between counselors and those who need their services, and NBCC’s Counselor Find directory is an easy—and free—way for nationally certified counselors to share information about themselves and their practices. This online platform is user-friendly, and listings can be updated at any time. To date, thousands of counselors have taken advantage of this benefit to market their skills and expand their reach.
If you’d like to share information about yourself and your practice online through Counselor Find, start by logging in to your ProCounselor account. There, you’ll click on “My Information” in the navigation to the left, then the “Counselor Find” button at the bottom of the screen. Once there, you can update your practice information, language, and practice areas.
“We encourage all of our nationally certified counselors to keep their information updated in Counselor Find,” says Catherine Clifton, NBCC’s Director of Professional Resources. “The more counselors we have who enter their information, the stronger resource it becomes.”
“People across my professional and personal communities always ask how they can get help for themselves or a loved one, and I am proud to point them to Counselor Find, knowing that I’m connecting them with reliable and highly qualified counselors, no matter where they live.”
