Patricia Dobratz, JD, LMFT, BC-TMH

My educational and professional background spans the fields of law, academia, and behavioral health services.  I have had the opportunity to work as a prosecuting attorney, victim advocate, college instructor, marriage and family therapist, clinical supervisor, and vice president of behavioral health services.  My favorite part of each role has been the opportunity to support others. 

I have demonstrated my dedication to the integrity of clinical best practices through my service and memberships.  For years I served on the conference committee for AAMFT Arizona Interest Network and in the role of Ombudsman.  In 2011 I was appointed to the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners Marriage and Family Therapy Credentialing Committee.  In addition, I have been appointed to serve on the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners as a Professional Member and have had the honor of being elected Chairperson by my colleagues in 2014 and 2020. 

What I am most proud of thus far in my professional journey are the opportunities I have had to train, mentor, and provide clinical supervision to others.  I have been registered as a qualified clinical supervisor in Arizona since 2011 and have provided clinical supervision to interns, associates, and independently licensed professionals in the private practice and community outpatient settings. 

I have also taught at several colleges and universities for undergraduate and graduate programs.  I have held leadership positions such as Clinical Supervisor, Director, and most recently, Vice President of Behavioral Health Services for an integrated healthcare company.  In each role, I have had the opportunity to develop training and professional development initiatives, refine policies and procedures, as well as oversee small and large teams of clinical therapists and supervisors. 

My training and experience uniquely situate me to assist therapists, supervisors, and organizations.  Thus, the creation of the Clinical Best Practice Institute!


We look forward to hearing from you!
