The Arizona Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic was developed because we saw a need for therapeutic support in the community. We noticed that the relational and mental health industry had a gap in services between state-funded agencies and private practices with rates as high as $250 per session. The Clinic was launched to honor our mission of serving the community by providing affordable and inclusive therapy services at the highest level of quality care. Our team is committed to creating a welcoming and safe environment for individuals, couples, and families of all lifestyles and stages of their relationship. In addition, we are committed to ongoing clinical trainings to best serve our clients.
The Arizona Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic welcomes individuals, couples, and families of all lifestyles and stages of their relationship to be part of therapy services. We work not only with married couples but with dating and cohabitating couples, same-sex couples, divorced or separated couples, newlyweds, those considering or preparing for marriage, as well as those never intending to marry. We work with couples in crisis but also with those looking for a “tune-up” to make small relational improvements or a “check-up” to maintain the quality and health of their relationship. We also work with those who currently have no relational concerns but who are preparing for the next step in their relationship, whether it be marriage, cohabitation, starting a family together, preparing for an “empty nest,” or any other relational transition. At the Clinic, we believe it is never too early or too late to work on your relationship and that people of all walks of life deserve access to affordable, high quality relational care.
Social stigmas, coordinating schedules, and various fears and anxieties can be barriers to receiving therapy services. We feel that costs and lack of quality services should not be additional barriers to seeking support. We offer the most affordable therapy services in the valley starting at the low cost of $40 per session without compromising the quality of care. Our goal is to provide a holistic and systemic approach to all clients seeking therapy services.
The Clinic is a training ground for clinicians seeking supervision and licensure as well as independent clinicians seeking collaborative and team-focused therapy. Our seasoned clinicians have over 10+ years of experience. We are passionate about supporting clinicians in skill-building and career fulfillment. We consider our clinicians to be some of the most qualified and highly trained in the Phoenix area. Our team is involved with clinicians throughout the state by providing trainings and ongoing professional support.
