The mission of the San Diego North County Chapter of CAMFT is the advancement of marriage and family therapy as an art, a science and a mental health profession, and to assist CAMFT in furthering its objectives on a local level.
The San Diego North County Chapter of CAMFT was organized in 1996 by a group of therapists who wanted a more convenient location for members to meet in the north part of the county. It was first known as the North County Chapter of CAMFT. A year later the name was changed to San Diego North County Chapter. Successive boards have worked diligently to provide chapter members with opportunities for professional growth, networking and outreach to the community at large.
Who are MFTs? Originally called marriage, family and child counselors, we are now known as marriage and family therapists. We are interpersonal relationship specialists. Our education and training prepare us to assess, diagnose and treat individuals, couples, families and groups who are looking for help to improve their relationships. We work with individuals of all ages - adults, adolescents and children. Our focus is on providing support, problem-solving skills and enhanced coping strategies for a variety of mental health issues.
Licensed or registered by the state of California, marriage and family therapists are psychotherapists who have either a related master's or doctoral degree. In addition, they have completed (or are in the process of completing) at least 3,000 hours of supervised work and passed (or are in the process of passing) two rigorous examinations administered by the state.
