Terminology and Counseling, Therapy, and Psychotherapy Professions

What is the difference between counseling, therapy, and psychotherapy?

There actually isn’t a difference between those terms! All three refer to the process of working with a counselor/therapist/psychotherapist to gain skills or guidance in solving life’s problems. One of those terms might be used more than the others because of a person’s training or their license in mental health, or simply personal preference. We tend to use the term counseling more often than the others because we are either Licensed Professional Counselors, or working towards that type of license with the Regulatory Agencies here in Colorado.

What is the difference between all the types of mental health professionals?

This is a common question, because there are many terms and acronyms that name the work we do with our clients. And although there are many different types of licenses and degree programs, much of the work we do as counselors/therapists/psychotherapists is very similar.

What does it mean to be “licensed”?

In Colorado, there are licenses for all the designations listed below.  Anyone with those licenses has obtained a graduate degree (MA, MS, Psy.D., Ph.D. or MD), and has also done a certain amount of hours of supervised work with another professional overseeing their competency.  In Colorado, mental health professionals can work with just a graduate degree before they obtain the licenses below, but they must register with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) as either a Registered Psychotherapist or a Candidate for licensure.

Here’s a brief description for the most common professional counseling designations:

Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC): The training for an LPC can be in many areas of counseling including for family, marriage and couples counseling, play therapy for children, group therapy, and of course working with individuals. In these degree programs, you gain an extensive set of flexible skills that allows you to take your work as a counselor in many different directions.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT): LMFT’s gain a broad set of skills in marriage and family therapy in their degree programs. Professionals with an LMFT designation often work a lot with families, children, and couples but they work with individuals as well.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW): LCSW degree programs focus more on individual concerns and issues and although this can mean that an LCSW professional works mostly with individuals, they may also provide couples and family counseling.

Psychiatrist: Psychiatrists have a specialized medical degree, which allows them to prescribe medication with a focus on psychoactive medications for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder for example. Most of the time, psychiatrists do not provide psychotherapy and only help people manage medications appropriately.

Psychologist: Psychologists have doctorate degrees, so they are doctors, but not medical doctors. They receive more education than LPC’s, LCSW’s, and LMFT’s who might be referred to as “Master’s Level Therapists.” Many times, psychologists work in very specialized areas such as forensic psychology (working with the court system), or providing psychological testing.
