Welcome to the new and improved Smoky Mountain Counseling Association website!
Smoky Mountain Counseling Association is a regional chapter of the state organization, Tennessee Counseling Association. As a chapter of TCA, SMCA works to support both the mission and purpose of TCA by meeting throughout the year to provide professional development opportunities for School Counselors, Mental Health Counselors, Rehabilitation Counselors, Social Workers, Counselor Supervisors, graduate students and anyone interested in counseling and the profession as a whole.
Our meetings include a time to network, meet other counselors from the area, have dinner, and a one-hour professional development opportunity. The professional development part of our meeting will always have a guest speaker who will speak on a relevant topic and its relation to counseling.
Our goals for this year are:
- Be intentional about increasing membership
- Establish new ways to address the need of our current mental health members
- Determine new ways to invest and reach out to members of our community
- Identify ways to use technology and social media to broaden our scope of reach and influence
Our counties include, Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Hamblen, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Monroe, Roane, Scott, Sevier, and Union.
