Letter from the Board

August 25, 2017

Hello {Contact_First_Name} {Contact_Last_Name}, 

The summer was a busy month for your the chapter with training and board meetings and actions.  Sorry in advance for a newsletter that is a lot longer than typical.

Our Law and Ethics training was well attended both days; thank you Dave Jensen, JD & Darlene Davis, LMFT.  The Board met twice in July.  Our continued growth over the past three years afforded us the opportunity to focus upon the development of a strategic plan for next year as well as explore options to reinvest in membership.  Topics included how to develop an endowment so we may offer scholarships.  With our improved operations and practices we will surely be in the running as a model chapter this year.

To ensure continued growth and smooth transition of operations we've begun succession planning steps with President Elect, Talal Alsaleem, LMFT leading the Nomination Committee.  Because the strategic plan will be implemented during his tenure, he has also been meeting with Board members to incorporate ideas and empower our board members.  Of course, we can't mention a nomination committee without saying that we are recruiting for the position of Program Committee Co-Chairs (2), Treasurer, and President Elect.  Learn how you may be a part of an exceptional team of volunteers by contact Talal at

Please thank our current Program Committee Co-Chairs, Nate Hooper, LMFT and Susan Martin when you see them.  They have done an outstanding job this year, and to help aide the recruitment process and ease the next Chairs, Nate and Susan have already begun planning for next year.  Their efforts are a key part of our becoming a model chapter.

We will also miss Billy Schult, our Treasurer.  He led the Financial Committee for two years, who projected our expenditures with exceptionally accuracy.  Nate and Susan surprised them this year with larger than expected revenue...a good problem to have!  His leadership and dedication to best practices has also aided in our process to become a model chapter.  Please also thank him for his service.

I recommend anyone who enjoys helping others develop ideas, cheering them on, and facilitating a dynamic tea, to run for President Elect--not to mention the opportunity to work with Talal.  It's been a pleasure having him on the team this year.  I look forward to his tenure as President next year.

Please visit our Events page for the latest educational opportunities.  We host Kathy Campbell on September 1stBarbara Griswald, LMFT in October and Rob Weiss, LCSW in November.

​I look forward to providing another update in a month.  I am sure it will be shorter, but just as packed.

See you at our events!

Legal Beagle

dectective.pngWelcome to the section of the SVC-CAMFT newsletter, Legal Beagle written by Darlene Davis, LMFT. The chapter thought it would be helpful to keep you updated on new laws, legislative pursuits or actions, as well as ongoing legaland ethical dilemmas we all face in our career as Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Interns, and Trainees. Please feel free to ask questions that you have and I will do my best to investigate and post your answer in the newsletter. Please note that articles are based on information from CAMFT and/or the BBS and have been researched to the best of my ability. This is not meant to be legal advice.  Please contact CAMFT or Board of Behavioral Sciences for any legal matters you need assistance for.


The BBS is meeting on Friday August 25th and one of the topics to be discussed on the agenda is something I think we are all interested in. Whether you believe in Tele-health (Teletherapy) it is happening all over the country. As states begin to look at how to assure protections to clients while engaging in teletherapy they are discovering barriers to conducting this type of therapy. One barrier, pertains to laws governing when and with whom a clinician can provide teletherapy.  For example, California does not allow us to conduct teletherapy with a client physically outside of California. Another barrier pertains to out-of-state applicants wanting to become licensed in another state. These clinicians may have been licensed in another state for many years and find it very difficult to become licensed in a new state. They may have to prove their education, gain additional supervised hours, and take another examination. Not sure I’d want to jump through these hoops if I’d been practicing for say 10+ years!

Below is the BBS Memo that will be discussed at the board meeting on Friday. If you have an opinion on either side of this discussion or have additional questions I would encourage you to contact the board and let them hear your voice. I personally would love to see open portability within the states that is based on “adequacy and trust” as discussed below.

BBS Memo

Date: August 4, 2017

To: Board Members

From: Kim Madsen Executive Officer

Phone: 916 574 7841

Subject:  Association of Marital and Family Therapy Regulatory Board (AMFTRB) Mobility History

During the 2015 Annual AMFTRB Delegate Meeting, the members called for AMFTRB to explore the regulation of teletherapy and the mobility of licensure across jurisdictions. Two committees were established – the Mobility Workgroup and the Teletherapy Committee.

The Mobility Workgroup was charged with exploring current efforts of other professions and to develop recommendations for license mobility for the member’s consideration. The Mobility Workgroup collaborated with representatives from AMFTRB, COAMFTE (Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Education) AAMFT (American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy), CAMFT (California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists) and regulatory boards.

The Teletherapy Committee was charged with developing guidelines for the regulation of teletherapy and to explore associated issues. Both committees gathered information and data specific information to their mandates.

Subsequently, the work of the two committees began to overlap. As a result, members from both committees merged into a joint committee identified as a Super Committee. The Super Committee members met in Denver, Colorado on July 14-15, 2017 to discuss licensure mobility. The Board of Behavioral Sciences was invited to participate in these discussions.

Super Committee Meeting

During the Super Committee meeting, participants reviewed other attempts by professional associations to improve license portability and the success rate. While some improvements have made towards license portability, none of the other attempts have been adopted by all states. Recognizing these efforts, the participants decided to look at the commonalities and responsibilities for state licensure.

The committee participants identified protection of the public as the primary responsibility for each state. The participants reviewed common requirements for licensure within each state. For example, a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy or similar degree program; completion of supervised work experience hours; and passing a clinical examination.

The participants acknowledged this common ground and began to explore how to develop a mobility recommendation that did not interfere with the regulatory jurisdiction’s authority. The participants shifted from the perspective of “substantially equivalent” to “adequacy and trust”.

Specifically, as a regulatory board, do you trust that another jurisdiction is just as dedicated as yours? And, do you trust that the regulatory board has done an adequate job of vetting an applicant for licensure?

Pathway to Mobility Proposal

Moving away from the perspective of “substantially equivalent” created the opportunity for the participants to develop a mobility proposal that recognized both a state’s primary responsibility to the consumer and fundamental requirements for licensure. The participants determined that the proposal would only apply to individuals who already possess a license. The core components of the proposal are as follows.

• The individual must be licensed for at least one renewal cycle.

• The individual obtained a professional graduate degree program in marriage and family

therapy from an accredited school.

• The individual must possess a valid license that is not restricted or currently disciplined.

• The individual has completed post-graduate supervised clinical experience as requirement

for licensure.

• The individual passed either the national MFT clinical examination or the California Clinical

MFT Examination.

Although the individual may be licensed in several states, the state in which the individual was first licensed would verify all the above components. AMFTRB will create a draft form that all states may use to verify this information. If the individual is licensed in other states, existing state forms/processes may be used to verify the license status.

The AMFTRB Mobility Proposal resolves several key barriers to out of state licensure.

                 Education – The proposal recognizes that the degree obtained to qualify for initial licensure met the educational requirements for licensure as a marriage and family therapist at that time; regardless of the number of units within the degree program or age of the degree. The proposal provides the opportunity for licensees with older degrees to become licensed other states.


                 Post-Graduate Clinical Supervised Experience – The proposal recognizes that the individual completed the clinical supervised experience hours required in the initial state of licensure; regardless of the number of hours. The proposal also recognizes the individual is fully licensed and practicing. Therefore, there is little value or enhancement to consumer protection by requiring the individual to gain additional supervised clinical experience as a condition of licensure.


• Passing the Clinical Examination – The proposal recognizes both the national MFT and California Clinical MFT examinations as acceptable examinations for MFT licensure. Both examinations are developed in accordance with professional licensure testing standards. This eliminates the requirement for applicants to take and pass a second clinical examination for licensure.


The AMFTRB Mobility Proposal creates the opportunity for an efficient process for licensure in other states. Recognizing that the licensee has satisfied the minimum competencies required for initial MFT licensure eliminates the burdensome tasks to demonstrate completion of supervised work experience hours or retaking a clinical examination.

Additionally, the AMFTRB Mobility Proposal allows states to retain any additional requirements for licensure such as fingerprinting or passing a jurisprudence examination.

The Mobility Proposal also addresses concerns related becoming licensed in another state to provide teletherapy. Specifically, the difficulty in becoming licensed in another state. The use of teletherapy across state lines is increasing. Providing an efficient licensure process across state lines promotes compliance with state licensing requirements. As a result, consumers receiving teletherapy services are protected.

The final draft of the AMFTRB Mobility Proposal will be presented to members during the 2017 Annual Delegate Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. An out-of-state travel request for the Board’s Executive Officer to attend this meeting has been submitted.

License Portability Discussions

Discussions related to improving licensure portability and removing barriers to licensure are increasing. In California, the Little Hoover Commission held hearings in 2016 to discuss this issue. The report may be viewed using the following link Nationally, professional associations continue to seek solutions to reduce and/or ease the process of licensure between states.

On July 27, 2017, the Federal Trade Commission’s Economic Liberty Task Force hosted a roundtable in Washington, DC to discuss license portability. A webcast of this meeting may be viewed using the following link During the roundtable, speakers shared information regarding licensing compacts and other methods to improve licensure portability.

  June Presentation Summary

Self-of-the-therapist: An experiential workshop addressing attitudes towards bisexuality and homosexuality.
(2 CEs)

Ariana Lozano M.A., MFT-I

SVC-CAMFT’s June 2017 workshop presented by Ariana Lozano, made us look at ourselves and the privileges that we hold.  She started with a brief LGBT history in the United States.  Described the in-depth research and how they found that literature was sadly lacking inclusion of people of color.  Self-of-the-therapist was written for heterosexual clinicians to help show how they see their clients through heterosexual lenses and perpetuate hetero-normative culture.

It was an eye opening experience with experiential exercises.

Workshop Information:
Many therapists think of their progress notes as a completely confidential means to keep track of client's history and treatment. In reality, we should be writing notes as if someone else might read them. While we may shiver at the idea of an insurance plan, ethics committee, or licensing board requesting to review a client's chart, this is happening more frequently, even to therapists who don't work with insurance. In these cases, well-written records can be a therapist's best defense. This new workshop will address what EVERY therapist should know about client charts and notes. Attendees will learn how to efficiently write notes that not only assist in treatment, but that meet the expectations of state law, professional ethics, licensing boards, and insurance plans.

Special Feature

By:  Heather Cassandra Blessing, LMFT

The last few days for me have been amazing and yet at times hard emotionally and personally.  I have been attending the Gender Odyssey Professional Conference in Seattle, WA, but his is not about just gender and actually, transgender is only one small part of this.  I have good friends in a town nearby that I love to see and this also is part of the roller-coaster.

It is day one at the conference, I am excited, finally I see they are addressing the intersection of disabilities, people of color and people who are transgender.  Listening to the workshops, shows me that though I have seen some issues, I really had only seen the tip of the ice-berg in my practice (mainly because most clients pay me, so that right there changes things).  I learn about free support groups often have to be in older buildings because of the cost, which often mean that the buildings are not ADA compliant or may not be near public transportation, which isolates so many people.  If someone has very little funds the cost of public transportation can be too much if one has to chose to eat, pay rent or go to a support group.  One person pointed out a support group in her area is on the 2nd floor of a building with no elevator, as she uses a walker or a scooter, she is not able to get there.

In cities like Seattle (I am sure Sacramento is similar) a certain percent such as 5% of new dwellings are to be ADA compliant, but there is no law that only someone with mobility issues or other disabilities occupies that place.  Since low income housing fills up quickly, often whoever is next on the low income house list when an ADA compliant low income place comes available gets in, whether or not they need the accessibility.  This often means that if those who are in need of ADA compliant housing either pay more or choose to accept whatever they are given.

These are just a small amount of the things that are going through my head when at the end of day one, I head out to see my friends.  They have texted me asking if I would be willing to take them to the laundry mat before we go to eat.  I say sure.  As I drive up to their place, I notice the uneven steps and the 2.5 level they have to go up and down.  They are both disabled and use canes.  They both earn a very small income working at home, but too much to get assistance and disability.  He is transgender.  I help the best I could bringing the laundry down to the car.  They tell me where I need to go and we soon arrive.  Both are shocked we got there so fast.  They tell me the bus takes over an hour to get there (about 6 to 8 minutes with me driving).  He stays behind doing the laundry while she and I go to a dollar store.  Again she is shocked at how quickly we got there.  We shop, go back and finish the laundry.  We all go out to eat.  We are enjoying dinner when over in the bar area a guy is getting somewhat loud.  My friends are getting nervous.  It dawns on me that because my guy friend is transgender, he is afraid that a belligerent drunk could start something serious and he would be a target.  Suddenly a fight starts and goes right past us, we are all shocked but as I look at my friends, they are terrified.  Living on the streets, have taught them they are in danger because thinks can quickly escalate and they become targets.  They get the guys that are fighting out of there.  None of us eats much after that and we leave.  I take them home and then headed back to where I was staying.

That drive back to my place was tough.  All of the things I had listened to and had seen made me realize my privilege in so many ways.  I have money, not a lot but enough to go to a conference and rent a car.  I never actually slept on the street.  I slept in my minivan sometimes and couch surfed but I always did have a safe place to go.  Despite my own handicaps, I had the ability to go back to school since I had someone else helping me keep a roof over my head.  I am not targeted like my male friend is, since I am not transgender.  Then the tears started to roll down my face.  My male friend has an abscessed tooth that he has had for several years.  He has MediCaid but there are no dental surgeons that take MediCaid near his town where public transportation goes.  The nearest one is nearly an hour away and whether by cab or by Uber, it is too much money for them.  I offered to pay for their transporation last year and then just as they were getting close to the appointment, they told him MediCaid would not cover anesthesia and the surgeon will not do the surgery without it. Many times when he goes to the doctor they call him by his female name and misgender him, causing him to worry that someone who heard it will target them as they leave.

My friends are Caucasian like I am.  I think of how much worse it would be if they were people of color.  I realize how much privilege I have with me everyday.  The thoughts and lessons kept coming on day two of the conference.  I had one client similar, a black person assigned female at birth, now transitioning to a black male.  I had just had to have a conversation with my client before I left for the conference that the sassy attitude he had previously, would no longer work as a black man and could get him shot.  As a black woman, "she" was invisible and often ignored, as a black man he will be feared even if he hasn't been aggressive.  We discussed privilege going the other way, a person of color of the male persuasion is usually considered dangerous, of the female persuasion is often a target.  If a transgender woman of color looks at all as if she is transgender, she is even more likely to be murdered.  Most of the transgender people murdered in this country are transgender women of color. 

All of this reminds me that I honestly do not understand the fear those who have less privilege have about living in these times.  I will never understand but I can choose to keep advocating and trying to use my privilege to help those who do not have the same level of privilege to be heard.   I cannot speak for them, I must instead work to have their voices heard.

Welcome to "Psyched about Books and Movies!"  Each month we include a book or movie review by one of our readers.  Please see below guidelines on submitting a review. 

Title: Capturing Grace
Rating: Not Rated
Release Date: 2014 (DVD)
Reviewer: Heather Blessing, LMFT

Capturing Grace is a documentary about an unlikely intersection between two very different worlds. One is occupied by a legendary dance company, people who move with beauty, the other by people who live with Parkinson's disease and sometimes struggle to move at all. As someone with Parkinson's, I found this very interesting and helpful that often when dancing or moving or moving to music, motions that cannot be done or not done well are much easier and smooth.
