 VOTE NOW! for your chance to win free entry to an SVC-CAMFT event! You must vote by Dec. 15.


Angel Ortiz is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who works for Mindpath Health in Elk Grove, CA where he treats those who struggle with anxiety, depression, PTSD and other mental health challenges from a variety of modalities. Originally from the Bay Area, Angel grew up in a diverse community and was happy to have served on the SVC-CAMFT Board of Directors since January of 2021. He answered the call when the chapter faced the possibility of closing. It was with the same passion for his clients that Angel decided to commit to serving the local community of mental health professionals, committing to champion the cause of diversity as Diversity Chair. As Diversity Chair, he assembled a Diversity committee who helped draft SVC-CAMFT’s DEI statement. Angel also organized a three-chapter collaboration to host an impactful RaceTalk workshop. As a partially sighted therapist, Angel also understands the importance of serving our disabled community more effectively as he prepares to organize a workshop with the Society for the Blind and NorCal Peace of Mind (a deaf/hard of hearing agency) in 2023.
Angel looks forward to serving as Board President and would appreciate your vote.
