LEADERSHIP

 

Greetings from the Tennessee Counseling Association!

I look forward to serving this year as the Tennessee Counseling Association President.  As counselors, we work in a variety of settings, with clients throughout their lifespan in the three grand cultural and geographic divisions of the state of Tennessee.  Despite these differences, we are one profession working to serve universal client needs.  Emphasizing our similarities as counselors, we have a duty to advocate for both the profession and our clients.  This advocacy requires collaboration among our specialties, with our clients, leadership in our communities, and at times legislative action.  In an effort to improve and enhance the lives of our clients, counselors need to bridge the gaps in the understanding of what counseling is, what counselors do, the needs of our clients, and how counselors can benefit our communities.  Help us build this bridge as we collectively take the time to connect this year, have fun at our annual conference, renew and restore our commitment to our profession while we acquire the knowledge and skills to improve our practice, profession, and the lives of our clients.  We look forward to a year of growth.
