Adopt recommended changes

I agree with the proposed amendments to licensure hour requirements. As a Resident in Counseling I have seen first hand the difficulties imposed on both clients and licensure candidates due to current exorbitant hour requirements. Reducing the hours would make Virginia more in line with other state requirements, reduce resident burnout, and improve mental health services access to our communities. Thank you for your consideration.
