What can certification do for me and my practice?
Your CSTS certification demonstrates elevated competency in that you have met clear and established guidelines of training and experience. Some mental health providers take pride in developing a specialty in particular approaches, and obtaining a certification is one way to emphasize and give credibility to those efforts. Show clients and colleagues your practice is based on leading-edge research in this complex area of mental health. For some, certification may help to distinguish themselves in the marketplace. Don't take our word for it. Here's what your colleagues have said:
“…Certification has really boosted my clientele. Now, I have a full practice with an extensive waiting list because of it.” – Jack H.
