Counseling Unconditionally

openforbiz.png

The map shown above represents mental health providers in Tennessee who provide affirmative services, especially in regards to sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. Please click on the top right of the map to make it larger so you can search your address/location to find counselors close to you and more information about them (e.g., website, e-mail address, insurance options, etc.).

The "Counseling Discrimination Law" (formerly HB1840) passed in 2016 highlights the need for counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other mental health providers to speak out for inclusive and affirmative practices.  We urge any mental health provider to endorse the statement at the bottom of the page. 

As counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers serving clients in Tennessee, we affirm that we do not discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity and we will not use our own sincerely held principles as a reason to turn clients away. 

Note:  The Tennessee Equality Project and the Tennessee Equality Project Foundation reserve the right to refuse membership to any provider or revoke a provider's listing.

If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please reach out to tepcounselingunconditionally@gmail.com.

    As a licensed mental health professional in Alabama…I stand with my competent and ethical Tennessee colleagues who have been trained to be nonjudgmental and have committed to a code of ethics and professional licensure laws that specifically require nondiscrimination and empathy as the very foundation of therapeutic intervention and goes in total opposition to the unnecessary and divisive and irresponsible law passed to accomplish absolutely nothing but political pandering. As a past Licensure Board member and chair…I also send my regards to the Tennessee Board of Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Marital and Family Therapists and Licensed Pastoral Therapists who have, with the stroke of a pen, been put in an impossible position of doing their duty to “safeguarding the health, safety, and welfare of Tennesseans.” Good luck with that and all the impending lawsuits. Sad.

    You can’t follow this law AND your code of ethics. You have to chose.
