Mentor-Mentee Program

Program Description

Thank you for your interest in the SGV-CAMFT Mentor Mentee (M-M) program. This program has been designed to match pre-licensed or licensed therapists (mentees) looking for guidance and support with licensed therapists willing to share expertise and experiences (mentors) around six content areas. The M-M program is not clinical supervision but instead an opportunity to partner new therapists with experienced practitioners to share and improve in the therapist’s development.
