A 3000 Club Event!

Marriage and Family Therapists are professionals who have intensive training in a family-oriented, systems perspective to health care related to mental, emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal disorders. Like other mental health professionals, there are a variety of career paths MFTs can follow, using their unique skills and specialized training.

Hear from a panel of MFTs who chose diverse career paths including private practice, community mental health and non-profit, and much more!  Panelists will be asked questions about how they got in the door, what training and experience has helped them, what are the barriers or challenges of their chosen path, and so on. There will be time at the end for attendees to ask questions of the panelists.
