    Announcement: Board Vacancy

    Applications and nominations for the Maryland Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists are being accepted through May 9, 2022.


    Governor's Actions: 


    IMPLICIT BIAS TRAINING REQUIRED FOR 2022​ RENEWAL

    Enacted under Article II, § 17(c) of the Maryland Constitution, May 30, 2021 The law requires all health care practitioners in Maryland to attest that they have completed an implicit bias training program on their license renewal application. More Information Here​.


    To All Maryland Board Approved Supervisors,

    The Board would like to clarify how a licensed clinician who holds a supervisor status should indicate this information as part of their qualifications in their field of practice. Having a supervisor status is not a license and should not be included as part of your credential such as i.e., LCPCs or CAC-ADs etc. Those with supervisor status should indicate this information as a sperate part of their documentation or verification.  Our website has information on Board approved supervisors available to the public for verification purposes. 

    The Board hopes that this will alleviate any confusion for those who would like to document their status as a supervisor in a professional and legal manner.


    • ​​ Clarification Regarding ADT Practice
      Alcohol and drug trainees are authorized by statute to provide alcohol and drug counseling under the supervision of approved alcohol and drug supervisors. The approved supervisors are authorized by law to use telehealth in providing those services; thus, the trainees would similarly be authorized to provide these services using telehealth (under the conditions set forth in statute and regulation). The Secretary of Health’s April 6, 2020 Order was a clarification of that existing authority, as is the 2021 legislation effective on October 1, 2021 (Ch. 797, Acts of 2021).

    Teletherapy Change
    ​​​​The Counseling Compact offers eligible licensed professional counselors a new method for providing services in other member states. If you are interested in learning​ more about the Counseling Compact, please use the following link:
