Kysha Washington, M.S.
I am humbled to serve as Treasurer of VA-ASERVIC and to have the opportunity to serve in this capacity. I have been a member of VCA since 2006 and have served in various capacities throughout the years – VAMCD Secretary 2009-2011, VCA Secretary Elect 2011-2012, VCA Secretary 2012-2013, and VCCA Treasurer 2016-2019.
I completed my undergraduate coursework in Psychology and continued to pursue an M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling concurrently with a Certificate in Aging Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University.
I currently work for a Federally Qualified Healthcare Center in Richmond providing support to those seeking services regardless of their insurance, housing, or financial status. I have served as a Behavioral Health Clinician and now work in an administrative capacity. I also have a part-time private practice.
Having the opportunity to work in diverse settings for the past 20 years, I understand, value, and embrace the purpose of VA-ASERVIC:
- To further the stated purposes of ASERVIC and VCA and to explore issues of Spirituality as related to the issues and concerns of our clients and the practice of professional counseling.
- To serve as a resource for the counseling profession in developing competence to address spiritual, ethical, and religious issues, within the context of an increasingly multicultural society.
- To provide state leadership in moral and social justice issues within the practice of professional counseling.
- To contribute to the development of professional counseling in private, religious, and public institutions.
I am excited about the opportunity to serve this division as Treasurer and further support the mission of VA-ASERVIC.
