Our M.A. Psychology, Counseling Specialization degree program in Seattle prepares students for state licensure as master’s level counselors. As different states have different licensing and fieldwork requirements, we work with students from the very beginning to help them qualify for licensure in the state where they wish to practice. The counseling program is delivered through a series of face-to-face residential conferences where students are immersed in dynamic, experiential learning that blends systems counseling theory with hands-on practice. As a student in this counseling program, you will build confidence and competencies in “the self of the therapist,” the most important counseling tool, as well as skills in the practical implementation of core counseling theories and depth psychology.
