Clinical Mental Health Counselor Interview

I need a Licensed Mental health Counselor to assist me with these questions. I have called a bunch of counselors to get an interview and no one seem to be available. This has to be answered by a licensed mental health counselor, not a social worker or psychologist. The person's name needs to be attached so I can use it for interview purposes. The questions are:

- Please describe your education and training to become a licensed counselor

- What licensure and other professional credentials do you have? Professional memberships?

- What drew you to the mental health counseling profession?

- What client populations do you serve as a counselor?

- What do you like most about your day-to-day professional life? What do you like the least?

- How do managed care policies impact your work?

- What advocacy activities do you engage in?

Thank you.
