Your counselor has attained, at least, a Master’s degree in the field of counseling and they are in the process of becoming fully-licensed, known as an "LAPC" (Licensed Associate Professional Counselor). Georgia requires counselors who have recently graduated with their Master's degree to have at least 3-years of additional training while under the close supervision of a licensed counselor. All counselors were held to this requirement after they graduated.
If your therapist is an LAPC, this by no means implies that they are not qualified to provide therapy. All CACREP accredited graduate schools specializing in counseling require their students to make grades no lower than a B in their rigorous classes and complete 10 months to a year of internship. Additionally, all students must pass the Comprehensive Exam before beginning internship- which is required for all practicing counselors in order to be a certified therapist.
Holding the credentials of "LAPC" means that they hold an associate license to practice counseling in the state of Georgia, given by meeting the requirements of the Composite Board of Professional Counselors (http://sos.ga.gov/index.php/licensing/plb/43).
Additionally, if a counselor also has the credentials of "NCC," this means that they have also met the national standards for practicing counseling, per the National Board for Certified Counselors (http://www.nbcc.org/Certification/NationalCertCounselor).
Other credential abbreviations may also follow after your counselor's name that specifically show what your counselor has certificates in. This simply means that your counselor has gone through extra training and received extra experience centered to that particular genre of counseling. Examples of this could include "Registered Yoga Instructor," "Certified in Anger Management," or "Certified in Marriage and Family Therapy."
