Counseling Unconditionally

openforbiz.png

 Tennessee HB1840, the Counseling Discrimination bill, highlights the need for counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers to speak out for inclusive practices.  We urge any practitioner to endorse the statement below.  Those who endorse will be listed on our website and receive a Tennessee Open For Business window cling for display in their offices. If you would like to support programs like this, make your tax deductible contribution at this link.

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.

    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.
