Malpractice Insurance for Marriage & Family Therapists
CPH Insurance is proud to serve members of the Santa Barbara Chapter of CAMFT in support of mental health professional growth and stability.
Having served mental health professionals for 20 years, CPH Insurance insures students, provisionally licensed interns, and fully licensed professionals with malpractice insurance.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, you practice specialized therapy. Though your client may just be an individual, the focus of your therapy is on the larger network of relationships that this person maintains. This consideration for the larger “family” is often the cornerstone of healing but also a source of considerable conflict. They say a good marriage takes work. You know this is also often true when it comes to good therapy. Unfortunately, this work, like many strong marriages, can experience some bumps along the way.
These bumps can occur under circumstances that are out of your control, however somehow, as the therapist, you’re being confronted. Take for example the scenario of a client or couple’s divorce. You may find yourself with a divorce attorney asking for therapy notes or even a potential liability situation surrounding seeing either client individually instead of in couples therapy.
Over the course of a career, most therapists will experience this “What should I do?” moment. This is when professional liability insurance for marriage & family therapists is there to help you navigate the process. At CPH Insurance, we’re here so that when something like this happens, you don’t have to go it alone. Even if you don’t necessarily have a lawsuit or board complaint on your hands, we offer consultations with an attorney under our Avoiding Liability Helpline so that you can speak with someone to avoid any such situation.
