Cathryn Leff, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Temecula
Having problems with your child, family or marriage? Relationship issues with your significant other? I can help you move through the pain, to a place of understanding and growth. In my view, relationships need regular check-ups just like your body. I have been licensed to practice marriage and family therapy since 1996, and have worked in hospital settings, evaluating patients who were suicidal, depressed, anxious, and struggling with schizophrenia and bi-polar disorders. My wide range of experiences enable me to create the best treatment plan for you.
I work best with couples dealing with relationship issues, adolescents who engage in self-injurous behaviors, and children with behavior problems and/or ADD/ADHD. From working with San Diego County Children's Mental Health, I am adept at working with school districts and children who have Individualized Education Plans (IEP).
I work from my home office suite and your privacy is my top priority. I can provide you with a superbill for reimbursement through your insurance company. I'm founder and Past-President of the Southwest Riverside County California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT), and current Board of Director-at-Large for CAMFT.
