Message from the NVLPC President
New Additions to the Leadership Team!

Maria Mercado

Hello NVLPC Members:

We are happy to announce we have had some additional members join the leadership team during the last few weeks.  We welcome:

  • Tracy Bushkoff in the Past President position,
  • Elizabeth Hatchuel, as Resident in Counseling Support-East Chair,
  • Aneliz Escudero-Sipe as Multicultural Chair,
  • Durriya Auguelli as NBCC Liaison-Volunteer,
  • Khara Randall as Networking Group East Coordinator,
  • Tara Soligan as Nominating Committee Chair and last but not least,
  • Kristin Rosenthal and Jack Childers are the new Newsletter Co-Chairs. 

We are excited they have joined the team and look forward to what they each bring to the table!!!

On August 22, 2014 part of the leadership team met at the Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg to participate in a day-long leadership retreat and board meeting.  Many items were discussed and lots of work got done.  It also gave the leadership team an opportunity to learn about each other and nurture cohesiveness in the team as well as create goals for the organization.  As part of the work done, you will note that the Pre-licensure Group names are changing to Residents in Counseling Support- East and West, to reflect how the board identifies those seeking licensure. Leadership is working on creating more opportunities and benefits; a big outreach to increase the membership was also discussed and is in the planning and implementation phases. 

We encourage everyone to participate in the different events and get connected.  Our first event was on September 5th at the Springfield Golf and Country Club. Go to the website calendar to register and see all the events you can participate in, including our Fall Ethics workshop on The Ethics of Social Media and Online Counseling, and a second presentation on Ethics in Supervision that will be held on November 7th.  Dr. Michael Gillette, President of Bioethical Services of Virginia and Mrs. Catherine Chappell, Executive Director of the Virginia Board of Counseling will be presenting for us!

Lastly, I want to remind all the members you can make submissions for the newsletter.  If you have an area of interest and enjoy writing send your submission to or if you have any questions email, Kris and Jack at the same email address.

Until next time,

Maria P. Mercado, LPC, NCC
NVLPC President
