Minutes of May 4-5, 1999

The regular meeting of the Idaho Counselor Licensing Board was called to order on May 4, 1999 at 9:10a.m. by Chairman Richard Craig, Ed.D. Board members present are Richard Craig, Ed.D., Enid Davis, Ed.D. and Jun Shiosaki. Absent/ excused is Dawna Jackson, M.Coun. 

Bureau staff present include: Budd Hetrick, Deputy Bureau Chief, Kirsten Wallace, Prosecuting Attorney, Roger Hales, Administrative Attorney, and Janice Wiedrick, secretary.

Jun Shiosaki was welcomed to the Board.

Dr. Davis moved to approve the minutes of the February 1-2, 1999 meeting. Jun Shiosaki seconded the motion, motion carried.

Kirsten Wallace, Prosecuting Attorney, met with the Board to discuss eight disciplinary cases. The Board recommended four of the cases be closed, three cases be closed with advisory letters and to pursue one consent order.

Discussion was held on faith-based counseling. Roger Hales is to research the definition of faith-based counseling so the Board can further define faith-based counseling by rule.

Budd Hetrick met with the Board and reported that a financial report will be mailed to the Board members at a later date.

Discussion was held on the new renewal form that will be utilized this year. Since the LPCP is still a new license the Board requests that the Continuing Education be documented for each licensee. The renewal forms for LPCP & LPAS were approved as presented.


Discussion was held on holding the meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday instead of Mondays and Tuesdays. The Board agreed to hold the meetings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each time.

The Board meeting for July will be held at the Bureau on July 27-28, 1999.

Discussion on the Licensed Pastoral Counselor wall certificate was held. Since only one Licensed Pastoral Counselor at this time needs a wall certificate, the Bureau is to check on ordering a few laser printed wall certificates that are suitable.


Discussion was held on Rehabilitation Counselors and whether or not they fit within the Counselor licensing.

The Board determined that credentialed Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors may conduct private practice within the scope of their training and are exempt from licensure as a Counselor.

If a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor seeks LPC licensure, the NBCC examination and documented supervision by a LPC would be required.

The Board requests that Dr. Jerry Fischer or a local representative come to the July meeting to discuss licensure of Rehabilitation Counselors with the Board.

The Board reviewed and approved the following files for termination:

Tim Alderson, Michelle Arkoosh-Owen, Merle A. Buckland, Barbara Cook, Gary M. Daily, Pat Kaes, Terrance Klauser, Vernon Morse and Warren Olson.

This is based upon the fact that Marriage and Family is an area of expertise within Counselor licensing. Jun Shiosaki seconded the motion, motion carried.
