Clinical Mental Health Counseling Advanced Certificate

Medaille's advanced certificate in clinical mental health counseling is designed for students with a master’s degree in a related field who wish to pursue mental health counseling licensure. Meet our counseling & clinical psychology faculty.

Dr. Nowak taught me that our body language, when sitting with a client, could say a lot more than our words. He taught me that facing the client and leaning forward acknowledges to the client that you are actively engaged and empathetic to their story. To this day and with every client, old or new, I remember those words of wisdom. Moreover, I have seen that it does make all the difference in creating the bond that is necessary between the client and therapist.

About the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Advanced Certificate

Medaille’s Advanced Certificate in Clinical Mental Health Counseling is designed for students with a master’s degree in a related field who are pursuing mental health counseling licensure. The CMHC Advanced Certificate satisfies New York State’s regulations for licensure, and provides students with the educational requirements necessary to sit for the New York State licensure exam in Mental Health Counseling.

If the student completed an advanced certificate (“bridge” program) that is registered by the New York State Education Department, the student will need to have a Form 2 and transcript submitted by the original graduate program, as well as a Form 2 and transcript from the graduate program that awards the advanced certificate. The Department will review the transcripts to determine if the combination of programs meets the education requirements for licensure.
