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 of our members nor certify the competency of our supervisors. 

Members who are licensed to provide professional therapy and are also Approved Supervisors for CPT licensure are listed in purple along with their license [LCPT, LCSW, LMFT, LPC-MHSP, etc.].

Members who are licensed to provide professional therapy, but do not provide supervision, are listed in blue with their license. 

Unlicensed members who are practicing under supervision are in green.

 

We encourage you to verify the credentials of any provider (therapist or supervisor) you may engage for therapy, from our organization or elsewhere. 

Members: To add or edit your listing here please contact Mason Hale at mhale42@tntech.edu.
