Not In Favor

It is my opinion that residents accepting payment from patients creates the perception that the resident-therapist has attained the same level of competence as all licensed professional counselors in Virginia. In my experience, residents frequently neglect to explain themselves to patients properly and this causes confusion for the public. It seems to be an unnecessary change at this time.
