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.

    I work with all people and feel strongly that our psychotherapy ethical guidelines and training encourage us to work with all people, irregardless of their sexuality, religion, race, behaviors, values or beliefs.

    Counselors don’t need the government telling them how to do their jobs. We have a code of ethics and conduct like any profession. Again, the Tennessee legislature seems bent on injecting hateful discriminatory practices into the lives of Tennesseans instead of actually solving problems that face Tennessee. Shame on them! I work with many LGBTQi and other diverse populations whether it be race, ethnicity, religion, culture, etc. I treat all clients with unconditional positive regard and my personal beliefs have nothing to do with their right to be served.
