Licensure Application Process

Idaho law requires the licensure of all persons who practice or offer to practice counseling and therapy in the State of Idaho.  Licensure is also required for those engaged in clinical practice. The Idaho Board issues licenses for Counselors (LPC), Clinical Practice Counselors (LCPC), Marriage & Family Therapists (LMFT) and Associate Marriage and Family Therapists (LAMFT).  A license may be obtained through endorsement or examination.  

All applicants must certify under oath that they have reviewed and will abide by the laws, rules, and ethics governing the practice of counseling and marriage & family therapy. 

You may download Applications and Forms for this Board from the links provided below or they may be obtained by emailing the Board at

Reinstate inactive license


Please complete your renewal application and payment of fees through the ONLINE renewal system. There are no additional fees for this service. Documents, if required, may be uploaded when you renew.  If you have questions, please contact or 208-334-3233.

If you have not yet met the continuing education requirement, do not submit a renewal indicating that you have. Submitting a fraudulent application for licensure is grounds for discipline against your license.

For your license to remain valid, it must be renewed before the expiration date each year. Remember that you must have an active license to practice in the state of Idaho.

As a courtesy, license renewal reminders are mailed to your mailing address of record approximately six (6) weeks before the license expiration date. If you do not receive a renewal notice, you can still renew online and update your address if needed. You are responsible to timely renew your license whether or not you receive a renewal notice. 

Please note: If you fail to renew your license before its expiration date a reinstatement fee will be required by Idaho Code 67-2614 and cannot be waived. In addition, you may be required to submit continuing education or other required documentation prior to the reinstatement of your license. 


Q:  I have let my license lapse, what must I do to activate that license?

A:  A license that has been lapsed less than five years may be reinstated upon submission of a renewal application together with the payment of renewal fees, a license re-instatement fee, and proof of completion of continuing education as required in the rules.  If a license has lapsed for more than five years, a new application for licensure is required.
