Marriage and Family Therapists provide psychotherapy to help and support people through individualized counseling (one-on-one), couples counseling, co-parenting, parenting, and family therapy.
A Licensed MFT is a counselor who has received a Masters degree from an accredited school, gained 3,000 supervised hours of counseling, and passed his two licensure exams to become a Licensed by the Board of Behavioral Sciences through the State of California. I am an LMFT working working alongside other LMFT clinicians. This can provide more "bang for your buck" as I am able to easily consult with and pull from the experience of other therapists' schooling, life, and training in addition to my own.
Along the way toward my licensure, I provided care counseling through faith settings and group facilitation in various settings for many years prior to obtaining my MS in Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy emphasis in June 2014 from the University of Phoenix. I also hold a BS in Psychology with a minor in Religious Studies from the University of California, Davis, as well as an Adult Vocational Teaching Credential, Basic Education obtained through Sacramento State University.
I am a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (camft.org) and the local Sacramento-Valley CAMFT (svc-camft.org).
