Our Clinical Team

A Caring, Compassionate, Supportive Team to HELP you!

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 Arizona MFT 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.

Finding the best fit in a therapist is crucial. Our team at the Arizona Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic includes several male and female clinical therapists and we strive to help find the best match for you.

We are Dedicated and Committed:

  • To providing high quality and affordable therapeutic care for individuals, couples, children and families to the greater Phoenix community.

  • To acting collaboratively with other community professionals and to work toward providing the most comprehensive care for clients.

  • To providing excellent training for Master-Level Associate and Intern Clinical therapists.
