In Support of Proposed Changes

I endorse the proposed amendments to licensure hour requirements. As a Resident in Counseling, I've directly observed the burdens placed on both clients and licensure candidates by the current excessively high hour requirements. Decreasing these demands would not only bring Virginia more in line with other state standards but also address the critical issue of limited availability of mental health services in our communities. Your careful consideration of these changes is deeply appreciated.
