Commenter: Eve Hornstein, MS, Resident in MFT

Support for Petition

Virginia mandates 4000 hours of clinical experience in residency, which is much greater than many other states. It is essential that hours for residency count as soon as possible so that residents may begin to accrue hours for licensure, which is a long and arduous process. Moreover, all residents should be treated equally. I am, therefore, in support of the petition that the approval date of MFT supervisor registration by the Board of Counseling be no later than 30 days from the receipt of the applicant’s requests.
