"I am forever indebted to Trevecca's Graduate Counseling Program. It helped me build a solid foundation for a great career in the mental health field."

David Mark Thomas

The Graduate Counseling Program emphasizes development of professional counselors and their professional identity, offering degrees in clinical mental health counseling, marriage and family counseling/therapy, and doctoral counselor education and supervision. Trevecca's Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling is accredited by The Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP).

The master degree programs meet academic requirements for licensure, as these programs are designed to prepare students for licensure as a professional counselor (LPC-MHSP) or marriage and family therapist (LMFT) in the state of Tennessee. The counseling degree program is a 60-hour program which leads toward licensure as a professional counselor (LPC-MHSP). The marriage and family degree program is a 60-hour program which leads toward licensure as a marital and family therapist (LMFT).
