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!

Hello NVLPC members,

Great news from our parent organization, AMHCA, regarding their groundbreaking collaborative efforts with three other major professional counseling organizations to reach consensus on a proposal for a uniform portability plan called the “The National Counselor Licensure Endorsement Process.”  The four organizations – the American Association of State Counseling Boards (AASCB), the Association of Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES), the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA), and the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) –believe that a uniform licensure endorsement process will:

- Significantly increase public access to qualified care.

- Establish minimum standards for safe practice.

- Reduce administrative burdens for state regulatory boards and licensees.

- Create consistency in licensure standards across state lines.

- Ensure protection of the public and the continued development of the profession.

An overarching goal of the initiative is to move the counseling profession toward unified education standards, exam requirements and years of post-graduate experience. To see the National Counselor Licensure Endorsement Process, please go to

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me or any one of our board members. 


Sandy Molle

NVLPC President
