As an LPCC board member, he strongly advocates for the counseling profession by working with other licensure boards to find common ground, assist in positive policy changes and enforcing licensure requirements. He feels strongly in licensure for public protection and believes the board needs to take a serious look at the number of unlicensed counselors still working in the commonwealth. He also believes that reasonable assessment is a vital part of being a professional counselor which must be protected for those who are qualified. His desire would be to find common ground with the psychologist’s board and develop reasonable standards acceptable to all. As Board Chair, he also led the way to licensure reciprocity agreements between Kentucky and Ohio, Virginia, and Tennessee. He continues to advocate strongly for CACREP accreditation as an educational requirement for all state licensure boards.
