A Message from CAMFT 

In response to the COVID-19 crisis and current social distancing mandates, CAMFT members and mental health professionals everywhere are using Telehealth services to safely provide continuity of care for their clients. Government officials and health care entities are establishing emergency policies regarding the use of Telehealth during this unprecedented time. Below are the most prominent considerations for therapists who want to utilize Telehealth platforms throughout this crisis. (If you work in a hospital or clinic setting, be sure to follow your organization’s protocols for safety and readiness, including their protocols for Telehealth.)

These FAQs as well as additional information and resources can be found on the home page of the CAMFT website and by clicking here.

Please see our Resources page for helpful links during the CODIV-19 pandemic. 

We are working on updating this site with helpful information regarding this time in our society.  Please reference the state CAMFT and BBS websites for further information on the impact of and/or important legal changes to providing therapy sessions.


A Message from your RRC-CAMFT President

March 20, 2020

RRC-CAMFT Chapter Members,

Thank you in advance for your continued patience and willingness to navigate and work with the regulations and mandates of the COVID-19 pandemic that are changing by the hour.  We've waited for direction from State CAMFT before prematurely posting information that could easily be outdated by the end of the day.  

Each one of us in Private Practice has questions on telehealth, insurance billing codes, etc.  At this time, we suggest you continue to update yourselves regularly with the State CAMFT website - and refer to the RESOURCES FOR MEMBERS DURING COVID-19.  This Resource page has current information regarding Telehealth and Private Practice. Additionally, the State site features a Telehealth FAQ's for Therapists during COVID-19 that was just published today.

CAMFT's Facebook page also has some wonderful articles shared from business associates that cover Coronavirus-related topics.

State CAMFT continues to update Chapter Leaders regularly and please be assured I will pass along any new information to Chapter Members as soon as its received, so we can continue to provide a community in need with our safe, peaceful and assuring presence.

As always, please continue to prioritize your own holistic health and well-being, as we have so much more to give away when we've nurtured and replenished it within.  Please reach out to one another for additional support as needed.    

Kind regards on behalf of the 2020 RRC-CAMFT Board of Directors, 

Julie Boswell, LMFT                                                                                                                                                                                               2020 RRC-CAMFT President  

There are no limitations.  I can do what I want to do. I am imaginative and energized.  I am strong, able and focused.  I can do all that is mine to do today.  My mind is alert, my body vital and healthy, and my way be strewn with golden opportunities.  No matter what this day will bring me, there is that in me that is great enough to meet it, achieve it, and be blessed by it.  I will do that which brings me joy!

    Speaker: Julie Boswell, LMFT

    Julie Boswell is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Northern California who works in private practice with offices in Redding and Chico. She’s a Clinical Supervisor and is on the backside of completing CAMFT’s Certified Supervisor Program.  Julie served on the Board of the Redding Regional Chapter of CAMFT as President Elect (2017-2018) and is in her last year as President (2019-2020).    

    One of Julie’s specializations in private practice is working with clean and sober  adults (individual, couples and families) on their mental and emotional well-being as they maintain their physical recovery.  As client’s process and understand the genetic influence of alcoholism and/or addiction, and address learned codependent patterns of thoughts, communication and coping skills - they learn to build an effective emotional vocabulary and establish healthy boundaries that profoundly improve all relationships.  Additionally, Julie has conducted alcohol and substance abuse interventions statewide for over a decade; and works with first responders providing psychotherapy, as well as clinical debriefings, trainings and psycho-education on the impact of alcoholism and addiction in their personal lives and professional community.     

    With over 30 years of professional experience, Julie has also served the addicted population in a variety of settings including hospitals, schools, inpatient treatment center, adolescent crisis shelter, Child Protective Services, and facilitated Intense Outpatient Programs (IOP) for women, and pre-sentencing/post-prison release counseling at an outpatient facility.     

    Julie’s academic background includes an AA in Psychology (1987), BA in Child Development with Child Mental Health Specialist emphasis (1990), and an MS in Marriage and Family Therapy (1994).  Post-academia, Julie completed training as a Recovery Coach (2007), and is preparing to be trained and certified in Brainspotting.  Julie blends a client-centered, solution-focused approach to psychotherapy influenced by psychoanalysis, Gestalt, and DBT.  Julie and her husband are die-hard SF Giants fans, living thru their cardboard cut-out’s experience at Oracle Park this shortened COVID-affected baseball season.
