What Current Members Have To Say
Kelley Hopkins-Alvarez, LPC
"I have made several close friends through my volunteering with CCA. In addition, it feels great to be a part of an organization that furthers the development of clients and LPC’s in this state. I also wanted to give back and pitch in."
Craig A. Holch
“I think Connecticut Counseling Association is such an important organization for LPC graduate students and licensed clinicians. I became involved in my first year of graduate school and learned so much from attending events, joining and participating on committees, and serving at the annual meetings. I met so many wonderful people who have played a significant role in my professional growth and career. I was also a member of the mentor program and was fortunate enough to have a mentor who was a lead counselor who still remains active with the foundation established after the Sandy Hook tragedy. Also, I have participated and seen first hand how powerful the legislative arm is of our Association is and how all the graduated students and licensed LPCs in the state benefit from these efforts. I cannot speak highly enough about my experience with CCA!!”

Bob Schmidt, LPC
"I first joined CCA in 1989 and after all these years, I am still excited about counseling because of CCA. Since I joined I have seen CCA fight for and get licensure, third party payment, clarify our right to diagnose, raise the bar for our training, and just this year get 2 tiered counseling licensure which will greatly expand the opportunities for recent graduates to get work. In my mind, any LPC who does not join CCA is biting the hand that feeds it. Join now - you won't regret it."
