Professional Counseling Licensing


Prior to beginning renewals, all licensees are encouraged to review the User Guide, available by clicking HERE.

The Board of Professional Counseling ("the Board") regulates the practice of professional counseling in DC. The Board administers and enforces the law. The Board also evaluates applicants' qualifications, recommends standards and procedures, and issues licenses. Moreover, the Board receives and reviews complaints, requests investigations, and conducts hearings. The Board consists of five members appointed by the Mayor: four professional counselors licensed in the District of Columbia and one consumer member. All licenses expire on December 31 of even years. 

The Board meets monthly on the second Friday. Please note that meeting dates can change. In 2018, the Board plans to meet on the following dates:
