MaryBeth Crane pursued an education in psychology to fulfill her mid-life career dream. She gained clinical experience working in low-fee, general population clinics, public schools, and private practice settings. Licensed in California as an LMFT, she joined the Education Department at AATBS in 2013, while continuing school-based and private practice counseling. She then contracted to provide counseling to military service members and their dependents. Currently, she works in public behavioral health providing psychotherapy to adults with acute diagnoses, supervising associates, and conducting groups in anxiety management.
For her initial LMFT license, MaryBeth passed the California Standard Written and the Clinical Vignette Exams. As an AATBS Exam Expert, she set her ambition to sit for every exam she was eligible for. MaryBeth qualified for her California LPCC license by passing the National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Exam (NCMHCE), the National Counselor Exam for Licensure and Certification (NCE), and the California Grandparenting Jurisprudence and Ethics Written Exams. By passing the national Exam in Marital and Family Therapy, she obtained her Hawaii MFT license.
MaryBeth is available by appointment for personalized coaching, specializing in exam prep for the NCMHCE and also for anxiety management in any program.
