What is the difference between an MFT and an LCSW?
MFT stands for Marriage and Family Therapist. An LCSW stands for a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
As an LCSW, I went to Social Work School and trained in providing therapy, resources, referrals, and care coordination when needed.
An MFT typically attends a Counseling School and is trained in providing counseling.
MFTs and LCSWs have fulfilled over 3000 hours of training before taking a licensing exam. In California, MFTs and LCSWs are governed by the Board of Behavioral Sciences.
Do your clients receive homework between sessions?
Intention-setting is only an invitation to practice something and then have a place to discuss it further, regardless of the outcome.
Favorite TV show?
Project Runway! Who doesn’t love the best saying in fashion television, “Make it work”? I love Tim Gunn and hope to meet him in person someday.
Making it! I hope the show returns because I love the comedy duo, Amy Poehler & Nick Offerman.
Dogs or cats?
I had a bad experience with a cat as a young child, which created some reluctance and fear to have one in my adult life. However, good friends of mine had a cat named Psycho, and this fella was the only cat I’ve ever loved. He acted like a dog and cuddled at just the right times.
I am, most certainly, a dog person! I loved my childhood dogs, Yobo, a German shepherd, and Ginger, a golden retriever. As an adult, my husband and I adopted Feta, an adorable Bichon Frise.
Currently, my family and I have two rescue dogs, Morty and Layla. We also have a bunny named Blueberry.
