What are the steps to contacting the state license board to research a therapist

Here are the steps to contacting the state license board to research a therapist:

  1. Identify the state where the therapist is licensed: Each state has its own licensing board for mental health professionals. You'll need to determine which state the therapist is licensed in before contacting the licensing board.

  2. Visit the state licensing board website: Once you've identified the state, visit the licensing board website. You can usually find this by doing an online search for "mental health licensing board [state name]."

  3. Look up the therapist's license: On the licensing board website, you should be able to find a tool or search function to look up a specific therapist's license. You may need to enter the therapist's name or license number to find their record.

  4. Review the therapist's record: Once you've found the therapist's record, review it for any disciplinary actions or complaints filed against them. You can also verify their credentials and check that their license is up to date.

  5. Contact the licensing board for further information: If you have additional questions or concerns about the therapist's record, contact the licensing board directly. They may be able to provide additional information or guidance.

Keep in mind that not all licensing board websites are user-friendly or easy to navigate. If you have difficulty finding the information you need, don't hesitate to reach out to the licensing board for assistance by calling them on the phone.
