Why choose an LMFT for my Individual, Marital/Couples, and/or Family needs?
Did you know...? Unfortunately, Family & Couples Therapy more often than not is provided by people who are untrained in relationship therapy.  

One expert noted that 80% of all therapists in private practice in the United States say they do marital therapy, but only 12% of them are in a profession that requires coursework, professional licensure, or supervised training.  Those who are skilled, knowledgeable and experienced in Family Therapy are even fewer. 

This leaves consumers of family and couples therapy at a distinct disadvantage when looking for a therapist!
