The Difference Between Licensed and Under-Supervision 

In Texas, both an LMSW and an LPC-Intern have received, at minimum, a master’s degree in the practice of clinical treatment, have conducted sessions with clients, have passed the National Exam and have been licensed by the State of Texas. 

The LPC-Intern license is a temporary license that is provided to an individual pending completion of 3,000 hours of administrative hours and direct counseling sessions which are conducted under the supervision of a certified LPC Supervisor. The LPC has completed the requirements of the LPC Internship. 

An LMSW also can provide counseling services under the supervision of an LCSW. Upon completion of 3,000 hours of counseling services under supervision they can become certified as a LCSW. 

To use insurance benefits clients must see a provider credentialed with their insurance board. Below you can find which insurance companies we have a credentialed provider for. When using insurance, the rate charged will be based on your copay and individual insurance plan. 

However, there are some benefits to not utilizing insurance. Most insurance require a diagnosis which does become a part of your permanent medical record. Other benefits to self-pay may include increased confidentiality, no limit on number of sessions, and potentially not being required to have a diagnosis of a mental disorder to be covered.
