Please do not limit parental options

I would ask that you not put in any regulations that would limit parental choice. Parents know their children best and know what is best for the child. And the children themselves would often desire to have the therapy that you are considering restricting. Why limit what kind of help a child can receive? 

    Please do not attempt to limit the scope of therapy that counselors are able to use with their patients. If the parents and child choose a counselor, they trust that counselor to help them according to their individual needs, and I do not see it as the place of this agency to regulate the therapy to be used.

Thank you for your consideration.
