Not in Favor

I am a supervisor and an LPC. I, too, am concerned about the impact that changing the rule could have on the public. There are already cases in which the public is not being informed when a resident is not licensed and is under supervision. This misleads the public and hurts the profession as a whole. 
As LPCs, we have a responsibility to maintain professional standards, and while allowing residents to accept payments in their name would make it easier for residents, it would destroy the checks and balances already built into the system.
