    For a limited time, SVC-CAMFT is running a membership special that includes two scholarships for Systematic Affair Recovery Therapy (SART) training part 1 valued at $699.00. In order to qualify, you must work with couples. Two names will be drawn. This opportunity is being generously sponsored by Dr. Talal Alsaleem.

    Beginning January 1, 2022, the No Surprises Act (H.R. 133) will go into effect. The law includes new requirements for health care providers, facilities, health plans and insurers which are intended to prevent consumers (a.k.a. patients) from receiving unanticipated medical bills. The No Surprises Act resulted in changes to the Public Health Service Act1 that also apply to health care providers and facilities.  In anticipation of the new laws, the federal government recently published the accompanying regulations or rules for compliance.  Part 1 of the subsequent regulations protects consumers with health plan coverage from surprise bills from out-of-network MFT providers under limited circumstances related to emergency and non-emergency services at in-network facilities. This portion of the no surprise billing regulations published in July of 2021 will have only minimal impacts on MFTs and is discussed in the last half of this article.

    Marianna Jakucska, LMFT

    Marianna Jakucska has been a licensed marriage and family therapist since December 2014. She got her Bachelor of Arts degree at San Francisco State University in Psychology and her two minor focus-of-interest in Philosophy of Religion and Religious Studies. She received her Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology at John F. Kennedy University in Berkeley, CA. She is originally from Hungary and she finished her high school education there. She moved to the U.S. in 1993, lived in New York, then moved to the East Bay, California in 2003. She has been a Sacramento resident since 2015.

    Marianna worked at Alameda County Crisis Support Services in Oakland and counseled many people who called the crisis hotline. She acted as a milieu counselor for adults using substances at New Bridge Foundation in Berkeley. In Sacramento, she was employed by WellSpace Health and provided much-needed trauma counseling to children, young adults and their caregivers as well as to parents who were mandated to counseling by CPS. She also provided therapy at Lions Heart Counseling. Since February of this year, she is in her private practice full time.

    Next year? Marianna is aiming for the Secretary position at SVC-CAMFT to give back to the Community that has provided so much support to her. While developing her private practice with a focus on coaxing creative thinking from her clients, that integrates the intuitive and symbolic language of emotions and the critical, questioning language of reason, she hopes she has gained enough wit to fulfill this position to benefit the Sacramento therapist community.

    Ann Leber, LMFT

    I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 20 years. I believe that clients come to counseling not only to gain a better understanding of themselves, but with a desire to leave with new skills and tools to apply to their lives. I work with individuals, couples, families and adolescents.

    I serve as an adjunct instructor at California State University, Sacramento. I served as President of SVC-CAMFT in 2015 and Past-President in 2016 and then again President in 2019 and Past President in 2020.  I look forward to serving as Treasurer. I am committed to advancing the profession of Marriage and Family Therapy. I enjoy teaching and mentoring new therapists in the field.
