Who We Are

Aspiring counselors seek to make a positive impact in the lives of others — and is there to help on the professional journey. Our mission is to provide guidance, resources, and information to help you make informed educational and professional decisions. We provide comprehensive guides across your counseling journey, from sharing information on degree programs and types of counselors to details on how to achieve professional licensing.

How We Make Advertising Revenue

We advertise certain programs on on behalf of schools that compensate us for student referrals. When our visitors make school selections using our degree finder search tool, or when they interact with an ad labeled as "ad" or "advertising disclosure" on our website, we may receive compensation. We strive to be as transparent as possible when it comes to separating our advertised and editorial content. Advertising placements through which we receive compensation are unambiguously identified with terms such as "ad" or "advertising disclosure."

How We Maintain Editorial Independence

We strive to provide helpful information to you along your journey. Each article on our website is thoroughly reviewed and vetted for accuracy through a comprehensive editorial process. Our college and program guides, rankings, and other lists and content are created through a proprietary evaluation system that takes multiple metrics into account. These metrics include tuition and fees, admission and graduation rates, class sizes, and credentials. This comprehensive methodology ensures every resource on our site is unbiased and focused on the facts you need to know in counseling. Schools and programs will never be able to pay to be a part of our rankings in any way and no schools, including those advertising on the site, receive preferential treatment in our rankings.

ur editorial staff obtains data and information from verifiable and reputable sources such as the National Center for Education Statistics, the Common Data Set Initiative, and Peterson's. We strive to create current, accurate, and informative content that helps you succeed and is generated by our extensive network of education and counseling professionals.
