Art Therapy Licensure Support
 

I support independent licensure for Art Therapists in Virginia. Art Therapists provide vital services to various populations, including those experiencing issues with mental health, substance use, neurocognitive disorders, grief, and/or trauma. Enacting this independent license is critical to expanding access to mental health services for Virginia's citizens, and could provide increased access for under-served populations.
