Opposed to CACREP only proposal

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Maryland and I graduated from a non-CACREP accredited program. I have a MS degree in Counseling Psychology and have practiced as a counselor for 7 years helping people to overcome depression, addictions, obesity, and myriad other conditions. I would like to formally submit my emphatic opposition to the CACREP only proposition for the state of Virginia. Although I do not practice in your state I am vehemetly opposed to any legislation that limits public access to mental health services and sunders the counseling profession. This is bad for counselors, bad for public health, and bad for Virginia.
