Please Welcome to our 2019 Board:
Ann Leber, LMFT
I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 20 years. I believe that clients come to counseling not only to gain a better understanding of themselves, but with a desire to leave with new skills and tools to apply to their lives.
I work with individuals, couples, families and adolescents.
I serve as an adjunct instructor at California State University, Sacramento. I served as President of SVC-CAMFT in 2015 and Past-President in 2016. I look forward to serving again. I am committed to advancing the profession of Marriage and Family Therapy. I enjoy teaching and mentoring new therapists in the field.
Susan Armstrong, LMFT
Susan Armstrong, MS, LMFT, earned her Bachelor of Arts in Human Services from the University of Phoenix. She holds a Master of Counseling degree with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from University of Phoenix. After a 25 year career in Medical Administration, Susan fell in love with the mental health field and found a passion for counseling. Susan has had extensive experience over the past five years working with adults, children, couples and families in her Sacramento private practice and varied non-profit agencies focusing on anxiety, depression, relationships, and life stage changes. Susan works with trainees and associates at HOPE Counseling where she serves as a supervisor. Susan has had the opportunity to have continued training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Mindful Self-Compassion. Susan serves on the Board of Directors for the Sacramento OCD Foundation and for HOPE Counseling. She places great value in giving back to her community which is the drive behind serving as Secretary for the Sacramento CAMFT Chapter. Susan is a warm and caring therapist who brings her own life experiences into therapy sessions fully supporting the client and offering compassionate support to his or her journey.
Merrett Sheridan, LMFTLicensed in 2010 I have worked predominantly in residential and acute care settings. I am passionate about improving the lives of those struggling with mental illness and complex trauma. I re-located from the Bay Area to Sacramento in Jan. 2017 and currently serve members as Behavioral Health Liaison for Aetna Better Health of CA, a Medi-Cal program. I also have a strong interest in Positive Psychology and the study of Happiness. I have developed a menu of experiential activities that I offer through the innovative concept of Happiness Parties (think Pampered Chef for the soul!). Finally, psychology is a second career for me, I have a background in accounting and continue to provide bookkeeping services to therapists. I enjoy the dovetailing of my two professions and this is also why I believe I am a good fit for the Treasurer position at SVC-CAMFT. I served as CFO for Santa Clara Valley CAMFT for almost 3 years and enjoyed that role very much. Being new to Sacramento, I reached out to the board here as I would very much like to network and establish myself in the community of therapists and health care professionals in this region.
