We need licensed art therapists in Virginia

An art therapy license is vital for our field and our clients. In order to provide accessible mental health resources in the form of art therapy, we must obtain licensure to allow for insurance reimbursement. This is so important in order to ensure that those who need services will receive them and also, be able to afford them. In order to expand our growing population of art therapists, licensure is necessary. With the Covid-19 pandemic and increased need for mental health resources,, this is of the utmost importance.
