MFT Petition Support

I fully support this petition to end the backlog of applications for MFT licensure. As a beginning therapist, it raises major concerns for my desire to pursure a future practice in Virginia. Many colleagues of mine have raised concerns about their ability to obtain post-master's positions, and delays MFTs from beginning their professional careers. Some students are choosing to defer their licensure applications to other states to avoid the difficult process of application in Virginia. I believe that Virginia will lose many able and well-trained clinicians without a solution to this problem.

Thank you for your consideration.
