I guess you must mean requirements for the way that you practice your profession as a counselor. But doesn't that impair your professional independence? And isn't that kinda necessary for a good practice? I guess if you raise much of a stink about it, that would pretty much be asking them to show you the door, so all you can do is either grimace and swallow it, or ride your high horse into private practice. Either choice sucks. 'Cause I'm living proof that solo practice [of the profession of your choice] may look tough, and seem tougher, but it's actually hellaciously tougher than it even seems. My income as a grocery clerk is firmly attached to the hindmost udder, and, yet, it still far surpasses my income from my solo law practice, except for one year.
