Thank you for coming to our blog. We intend to post blog updates for military families, veterans, licensed counselors, legislators and public officials, and the general public about problems in certification of counselors.
This topic seems a bit esoteric and boring at first. Its important to understand that certification can act like a gatekeeper. When accessing services you want gatekeepers that make sure the services you access are of high quality. What you don’t want are gatekeepers that arbitrarily restrict services available for obscure or arbitrary reasons, resulting in a shortage of services for your needs. If you are a counselor (service provider) you want to be able to offer the services you were trained to do without being cut out of your career.
