Please streamline the process for finding supervisors!

I recently moved to VA with a MA in Counseling from a CACREP-approved program in NJ. As I was looking into how to become licensed here, I was discouraged to discover that the pool of eligible supervisors in VA was limited to those who have taken extra training in supervision. The extra training makes sense, but it does not make sense for the increased quality control to cause increased difficulty for new counselors who are trying to find a convenient, compatible, and affordable supervisor. For this reason, I support this petition. Thank you for your consideration.
