Support for art therapy license

As a registered and board certified art therapist  working with active duty military, I support the art therapy licensure. Licensing Art Therapists will create more access to mental health treatment, which is very much needed, and also make Virginia more attractive to practitioners to live and work in. It is also important to guarantee that those practicing art therapy are qualified in order to prevent harm to the public. In enacting the art therapy licensure Virginia will be in par with other states, such as MD, NY, and CT.
