How to Report a Problem or Ethical Violation

What if I feel like there is a problem with the LPC from whom I am receiving services?

While we hope you never have a problem with your work with an LPC, we recognize that issues can develop. If you are experiencing any of the issues below, please consider reaching out for help:

  • An inappropriate relationship
  • Unprofessional behavior by the LPC
  • Feeling unsafe or abandoned
  • Private information revealed without an appropriate reason or your consent
  • LPC not appropriately trained or licensed to deal with your issue/concern

Tennessee LPCs and LPC/MHSPs are required to abide by the American Counseling Association (ACA) Code of Ethics. To view this document, you can visit Code of Ethics.
