Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
To my knowledge, no one can hold themselves out to the public for any type of psychological service without proper Licensure at a minimum of a Masters Level. Persons with bachelors degrees can work in publicly funded settings such as a community or state mental health facilities but anything that involves independent practice of any time requires licensure.
For Pennsylvania, The follow link will provide the state law and requirements for licensure.
I trust that this will help and serves to answer your question.
I wish you the very best,
please feel free to reply.]
