President's Welcome:
Unity in Community

Hello and welcome to the South Carolina Counseling Association (SCCA)! Whether you’re a prospective member, a new member, or an old friend returning for new updates, we’re happy you found us!

The SCCA is a state-chartered branch of the American Counseling Association (ACA), and home to over 400 counseling professionals in South Carolina. Our theme for 2022-2023 is “Unity in Community” – SC is made up of many diverse and multi-faceted communities of which counselors play an important part. This year we want to unify SC counseling professionals in three key areas: 1) leadership, 2) advocacy, and 3) education.

The boundaries of the counseling profession are no longer relegated to “the couch,” our profession is quickly growing and expanding beyond traditional therapy, and we must keep up! Counselors can become leaders in their work spaces, in their communities, in their state government and beyond. The SCCA is committed to nurturing leadership opportunities locally and nationally through our partnership with ACA (

Part of this profession-wide expansion is the re-introduction of advocacy to our roles as counselors. Through traditional counseling we touch the lives of our clients and their loved ones, but through advocacy efforts we can change the lives of thousands! The SCCA is committed to advocating for both SC counselors and the clients we serve through legislation and public policy changes.

Lastly, we are eager to foster unity and community in our continuing education efforts. The SCCA has offered more CEs than ever since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and we are expanding those offerings this year! We are very proud of the diversity in content that we have been able to offer thanks to our members sharing knowledge and professional wisdom. The SCCA is committed to expanding our CE offerings and supporting SC counselors in their professional development.

We are grateful to each of you who have aided in our development as an association, and we are excited about what’s to come. We hope that you’ll find the information you’re seeking here; if you do not, please feel free to contact us at so that we may be of assistance. The SCCA is committed to serving the counseling professionals of SC, and we are happy to help with your professional needs!

Yours In Service,

Chandler Cox
