LEADERSHIP

Greetings from the Tennessee Counseling Association!

I have the distinct honor and privilege of serving at the helm of an organization dedicated to counselors and their clients! Originally inspired by my professors to join, I quickly became intrigued by the opportunities for professional development and collaboration.

Our organization has grown over the years and I look forward to our continued development. This year, the organization wants to hear from YOU to better meet YOUR needs. We know that well-equipped counselors are better prepared to provide enhanced services for clients so we are committed to serving you. We strive to provide an inclusive environment for our counselors and clients represent a diverse population. As a home for all counselors, we are ready to make our voices heard and advocate on behalf of our stakeholders.

From social justice initiatives to legislative action, we are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in Tennessee while also advancing the profession. We can do this better together so I look forward to working with you this year!

Dr. Eva Gibson,

TCA President
