Trevecca’s Graduate Counseling program began more than 25 years ago and has since established longstanding relationships throughout middle Tennessee’s mental health community. With an emphasis on its development of a professional counselor identity, the Graduate Counseling program offers degrees in clinical mental health counseling, marriage and family counseling/therapy, and doctoral education and supervision. Programs are accredited by The Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Education Programs (CACREP).

Whether your career goals include starting your own private practice, serving in an agency or counseling center, or leading as a counseling administrator, Trevecca’s Graduate Counseling program can help you reach your goals. The face-to-face format encourages professional relationships between faculty and students that extend beyond graduation. The Graduate Counseling program prides itself on creating opportunities for hands-on learning and real-time application in the mental health field. In addition to the more than 60 agencies and centers that serve as internship sites, students will study under highly qualified and credentialed faculty who also serve as current practitioners in the field.

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).
