Art Therapy License in VA

As a current Registered Art Therapist, I am in support of the Art Therapy License in Virginia.  In order to provide quality therapeutic services and best practices to all populations while using the skills acquired from learning to be an art therapist, it is vital that we are all held to a certain standard of care.  With an official license, the public, possible future clients, and our colleagues will recognize Art Therapy as a viable mental health and wellness resource.
