Maintain the requirements to uphold professional standards

Maintaining rigorous requirements for counselor licensure is crucial for upholding professional standards and ensuring the provision of high-quality mental health care. These standards not only safeguard clients' well-being but also promote continuous professional development among counselors, fostering a culture of excellence in the field. By upholding stringent requirements, we safeguard against subpar practitioners, thereby preserving the integrity and effectiveness of counseling services.
