CAMFT Approved Continuing Education Provider

California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT)

PFCS is recognized as a CAMFT approved Continuing Education Provider. All continuing education courses offered by PFCS meet the criteria established by the California BBS for license renewal. Provider Number 1000016.

I learned to provide direct clinical services including individual, couples, and group psychotherapy to a culturally diverse population.

Everyone at PFCS is approachable, including office staff, supervisors, and fellow trainees. This positive and productive atmosphere is the result of the professionalism with which everyone conducts themselves.

The exposure to school site populations as well as clinical clients was crucial to my development as a therapist.

The environment at PFCS is a model for future working relationships. Furthermore, the exposure to different populations also prepared me for future potential clients with varying mental health issues.
