Mentor Day

May 8th, 2021


Just because you are through the internships and licensure challenges, does not mean you don't need continued support. It can feel daunting to navigate the continued obstacles that clinical fellow members may feel.  This page is dedicated to resources specifically for members at this stage of their professional journey.

Questions? Call AAMFT at 703-838-9808 or email Be sure to have your member ID# handy or include it in your email! You may also contact WAMFT directly, at

Throughout our training to become a Clinical Fellow we often had a structured way to connect.  Once we arrive at this stage of our career, we might need a little help to find ways to continue to connect, consult, and network.  WAMFT wants to help! Check out these resources below.


As a clinical fellow you may find it challenging to network with colleagues.  Check out what WAMFT has to offer in this area.

If you would like to present at an event or have questions please contact Billie Tyler, Membership Chair, at

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT)

"When we feel concerned and flooded with fear, we tend to see and go with the obvious...We concentrate on each step how 'you just stepped on me', not the whole dance"

-Sue Johnson


"Couples get stuck when they defend their intentions instead of focusing on how they made their partner feel."

-The Gottman Institute


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)


Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Narrative Therapy

We believe it is our responsibility as therapists to cultivate a growing awareness of the dominant (and potentially dominating) stories in our society and to develop ways of collaboratively examining the effects of those stories when we sense them at work in the lives and relationships of the people who consult with us.

– Freedman and Combs

Bowen Family Systems Theory

"We all have an infant inside of us, but the infant doesn't have to run the show."

-Murray Bowen


Just and fair


"Not muting your mic is the new reply all."

- Anonymous

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Finding harmony within...

Discernment Counseling

"In the consumer culture of marriage, commitments last as long as the other person is meeting our needs. We still believe in commitment, because we know that committed relationships are good for us, but powerful voices coming from inside and outside tell us that we are suckers if we settle for less than we think we need and deserve in our marriage. Most baby boomers and their offspring carry in our heads the internalized voice of the consumer culture-to encourage us to stop working so hard or to get out of a marriage that is not meeting our current emotional needs."

-William J Doherty

Structural Family Therapy

"Certainty is the enemy of change.'

- Salvador Minuchin


"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

- Martin Luther King, Jr.
