Membership Listing

The following list of our members is provided to assist our members in connecting with one another and to assist in referral to our members for therapy. The Tennessee Association of Pastoral Therapists is a voluntary organization for collegiality, continuing education, and advocacy. TNAPT does not certify competency for our members. 

Members who are licensed to provide professional therapy are listed with their license (LCPT, LPC-MHSP, LMFT, LCSW) and *.

Unlicensed members who are practicing under supervision are in blue.

Members who are capable of providing supervision (up to 180 of the 270 hours) for LCPT candidates are indicated by **, with Approved Supervisors (for any portion of the 270 hours) indicated by ***. We encourage you to verify the credentials of any provider you may engage for therapy, from our organization or elsewhere.
