What do those letters mean?

Updated: Jul 17, 2019

What do all those letters behind my name mean? MAC, LPC, NCC, what? You may have seen other mental health professionals with different letters such as, MFT, LSW, LCSW, SATP, and the list goes on.


Before I went into the mental health field, I had no idea what these letters or acronyms meant. I also didn't know that when it is comes to my counseling care, they all mean basically the same thing. I wanted to break down some of the common acronyms you will see when choosing a counselor so there is no confusion when it comes to your care. Here is a glossary or sorts:


MAC- Masters of Arts in Counseling

MAS- Master of Arts in Social Work

MFT- Marriage, Family Therapist

LPC- Licensed Professional Counselor

LCPC- Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

LSW- Licensed Social Worker

LCSW- Licensed Clinical Social Worker
