NVLPC is the professional organization for all people in or training to join the counseling profession in Northern Virginia.

Our members consist of LPC's, counseling residents, counseling students, and others who work as mental health professionals in Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland.

Our regular breakfast programs each month offer LPC's an easy way to earn CE's, and give all our members time to meet and greet their professional and student peers, and learn something interesting. We also have support for those who are working their way toward licensing.  You have questions, NVLPC Resident Support Groups have answers.

As a counseling student, we were all advised to join a professional association for our own benefit, and for the benefit of our profession.  NVLPC is where you belong. 

Join us!


Message from the NVLPC President
Letter from the Leadership

Hello NVLPC members,

I am so glad that you are visiting our website.  Please check out our upcoming CE Breakfast Programs scheduled through May of 2017.  In January, Dr. Robin Norris will present on “Coping with Pet Loss” at our West venue.  Monica Band, will be presenting on “Practical Applications of Multicultural and Social Justice Competencies and Ethical Implications” at our East venue.  Remember to register early to take advantage of our discounted pricing options.

Did you know that research shows keeping a gratitude journal can create measurable differences in self-reported happiness?  According to University of California psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky, counting one’s blessings reliably increases positive mood because it helps us extract enjoyment from any situation.  Put another way, gratitude reminds our limbic brain that we are, in fact, adequate, and complete just as we are.  When the limbic brain feels inadequate, it often tries to “fill up” which often takes the form of addictions and impulsivity.  Remembering the fullness of gratitude can limit those feelings of inadequacy.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me at or any one of our Board members if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.  We would love to hear from you. 



Sandra Molle, LPC

NVLPC President
