CLINICIANS

Here is a list of mental healthcare acronyms that might be of help:

AAMFT – American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy                             

ACSW – Academy of Clinical Social Work

LMFT – Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist                                                                                                            

LPC – Licensed Professional Counselor: Usually requires a minimum of a Master’s degree in Counseling along with post graduate supervised experience.

MD – Psychiatrist – Medical Doctor of Psychiatry                                                                                                                        

MS – Master of Science                                                                                                                                                

MSW – Master of Social Work   

PhD -    Focuses on original research, data analysis and the evaulation of theory. Indicates experience in both research and clinical work.                    

PsyD – Doctorate of Psychology is a degree that focuses on the clinical and applied aspects of psychology.                     

RN – Registered Nurse                                     

SAC – Substance Abuse Counselor: a mental health counselor specializing in treating patients who have a chemical dependency on drugs or alcohol.                                                                                                                                                             ​

Though our clinicians have obtained their degrees through various educational and training programs, they all maintain qualifications that offer excellent methods of mental health counseling. Though we do couples therapy and occasionally have group work, much of the therapy that our clinicians provide is very individually based. It tends to rely on a collaborative approach of mental health counseling and has a flexible outlook on methodologies of counseling, social work, and psychology.
