Welcome to the Florida Mental Health Counselors Association!
I am so honored to serve as FMHCA’s Acting Executive Director this year because I truly believe that FMHCA is vital to the continued success of the Mental Health Counseling profession in Florida. First, I want to thank all of FMHCA’s Board Members and volunteers – they have worked and continue to work very hard on behalf of our members. We made great progress on our goals last year and I know we can continue that tradition this year. There is so much we are doing, and so much more we can do.
