Board of Behavioral Science 

The Iowa Board of Behavioral Science evaluates the qualifications of applicants for licensure and grants licenses to those who qualify.

The Board establishes rules and regulations to ensure the integrity and competence of licensed Mental Health Counselors and Marital and Family Therapists and investigates complaints for unprofessional conduct.

The Board is the link between the consumer and the licensed Mental Health Counselor and Marital and Family Therapist and, as such, promotes the public health, welfare and safety.

Licensees are responsible for meeting all licensure requirements and should review the rules carefully and frequently. Select Laws and Rules listed on the left and scroll through the Rules for detailed information about Licensure Definitions, Licensure Renewal, Reactivation and other important content specific to this profession.
