Marriage and Family Therapists

Therapy Session

Marriage and family therapists are mental health professionals with a minimum of a master’s degree and two years supervised clinical experience. Marriage and family therapists (commonly referred to as MFTs or family therapists) are trained and licensed to independently diagnose and treat mental health and substance abuse problems.

Multiracial Families

multiracial familyThere are approximately 7 million people in the United States who identify as mixed-race, with half of these being under the age of 18, and it is estimated that the mixed-race population in the U.S. will reach 21% by 2050. Yet, multiracial individuals and families remain marginalized and overlooked by mainstream U.S. society.

Adolescent Substance Abuse

Financial Distress & Family

The shift from having "something," even moderate means, to having "nothing" is devastating.
