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. We will to continue advocate for mental health counselors in Florida by supporting legislation that promotes our profession. We need YOU to make that happen.
