Elizabeth Dutcher, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Clinical Supervisor

I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist working remotely with clients all over California. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the California School for Professional Psychology at Alliant International University. I next obtained my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of San Diego. My clinical experience includes Vista Hill’s ParentCare, UCSD Outpatient Psychiatric Services, UCSD’s Co-Occurring Disorder Clinic, and intensive outpatient settings for severe co-occurring disorders. I have also worked in private practice for the last 7+ years working with individuals, couples, and families. I have had the privilege to guest lecture on family therapy theories in USD’s graduate psychiatric nursing program. I have extensive training in Gottman Method from The Gottman Institute, completing levels I, II, and III, as well as additional training in trauma, infidelity, and Couple and Addiction Recovery (CAR). I also have advanced training in CBT and ACT.  I felt a deep calling to become a therapist to help others make the most of their lives and relationships. 


Aside from being a therapist, I am a wife and a mother. I enjoy golfing, swimming, and taking advantage of our beautiful surroundings in Southern California.

Bethany Reddinger, M.A., AMFT

Associate Marriage & Family Therapist

As an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist my training, background, and experience encourage me to consider the significance of connection. I am passionate about shining a light on the struggles of infertility, miscarriage, infant loss, pregnancy, the postpartum period, and marital struggles that accompany all of these. Additionally, I have experience as a Bereavement Counselor with Hospice of the North Coast. There, I worked with individuals and families who were navigating anticipatory grief, ambiguous loss, bereavement, and Alzheimer’s and Dementia diagnoses. My collective experience prioritizes attention to life’s major transitions. 

Prior to entering the mental health field, I spent a decade as a remote copy editor for a civil rights organization while I raised my four young children. Prior to that, I spent my first professional decade as a high school English Language Arts educator. I created supportive relationships with students and encouraged their continual growth. 

I earned a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy at The California School of Professional Psychology in San Diego, CA, a Master of Science in Education at Walden University in Minneapolis MN, and a BA from Le Moyne College in Syracuse, NY. I grew up in the small-town, green wildness of upstate New York, and have learned a great deal about humanity through both moves and travels around the country and world.

As a human, I am an intentional parent and partner. I value time spent outdoors and am an avid reader.
