My question pertains to my recent graduation: Career Psychology wih Honors/Ashworth College. Is there 'Certification' for Psychotherapists?
To my understanding a Psychotherapist isn't required to be licensed, however, I am interested in any accredited examination to be certified, if this in fact, is a possibility.

There in no licensing for a psychotherapist. The term psychotherapist refers to an unlicensed position. However, if you want to be a psychologist you need some sort of license that meets certain state and national requirements. To become licensed to practice, psychologists must earn a degree from an accredited institution. After earning a degree you must complete the requirements to achieve professional licensing in the state in which you desire to work. You will need to research the licensing laws of your state as they can vary from one state to the next.

To be a clinical and counseling psychologist, you will usually need a doctorate in psychology, an approved internship, and a couple years of professional experience. You must also pass an examination. Some states also require continuing education for renewal of your license.
