Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors - What's New

When submitting a supervisor agreement form to be approved, the LPC-Intern must include a copy of the proposed supervisor’s wallet card as proof that the intern is knowledgeable of the supervisor’s license expiration date. Failure to submit the copy of the card will delay the approval of that supervisor and/or site.

Supervisors are strongly encouraged to visit the website and verify the interns associated with your name. To do this, go to www.dshs.state.tx.us/counselor and select the link titled “Find A Licensee”, select “Live Search”, select “Public Search” and proceed with the search options presented. If the information is incorrect, please fax or e-mail any corrections or updates. All interns and supervisors are encouraged to review the rule changes that become effective later this year. These changes may be reviewed, downloaded, or printed at our website by selecting the link titled “Rules/Regulations”. If you have questions regarding this notice or the rule changes, please contact our office.
