Once a clinician has completed their degree and their licensure hours, the NCMHCE is the last hurdle to clear before completing the licensure application.

You can learn more and apply to take the exam at NBCC.

License Exam Workshops

We collaborate with the Psychotherapists Training Institute to run one-day workshops to prepare licensure candidates for the exam. See our upcoming licensure events here to register.

One-on-one exam-related consultation

If you would like to meet one-on-one with one of our trainers, contact us and we will be in touch!

Licensure application resources

We know the license application process is not easy. MaMHCA provides several services to students and new clinicians seeking support in this endeavor.

License Application Clinics

The license application is expensive, and it is even more expensive if your application is rejected and you have to reapply. This clinic teaches you best practices to decrease the chances of application rejection. Do it right. Do it just once.

See our upcoming licensure events here to register.

License Application Counseling

If you prefer one-on-one counseling on how to do the application, we’ve got you covered.  To meet with one of our experienced trainers to go over your documentation get feedback specific to your experience and application click here: License Application Support Request


Find a Contract Supervisor

There are multiple reasons to seek out contract supervision:

  • If you have entry-level licensure, and your work site does not provide supervision that satisfies supervision requirements for achieving full licensure
  • If you want focused supervision in a specialty, or you are seeking postgraduate certification in a specialty area that requires specified supervision hours
  • If you have your full license but want continued support in your practice
  • If you want a fresh set of eyes to review your work

MaMHCA maintains a directory of individuals who have completed the MaMHCA supervision certification training. These are individuals who are not only accomplished practitioners but also have a fundament of certification in training up new clinicians and providing clinical oversight.
