California LMFT Option 2

What if I am unable to complete my 3,000 total hours by December 31, 2020, but I want to be evaluated under Option 2 (old requirements)?

On Friday, May 15 the BBS hosted a Facebook Live event and stated that if you are unable to complete the Option 2 requirements by December 31, 2020 as a result of issues related to COVID-19 you should post-mark your application by that date (the deadline for submitting under the old requirements).  The BBS will review your application and you will receive a deficiency letter.  You will have one year from the date of the deficiency letter to submit additional hours and you will still be evaluated under the Option 2 requirements.  You must post-mark your application by December 31 or you will lose the ability to choose Option 2.
