A Message from the President
As President of the Santa Cruz Chapter of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (SC-CAMFT), I invite you to become part of a growing and vibrant community of psychotherapists. As therapists, we provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families—of all types, backgrounds, and sexual orientations. SC-CAMFT provides a regular gathering place for networking opportunities with colleagues who can help you navigate and manage the working world of psychotherapy. This may mean finding a supervisor or internship, locating office space, reaching out for consultation, or simply making new friends. SC-CAMFT is a forum for continuing education via speakers at our monthly events and special workshops. SC-CAMFT provides the infrastructure and support to special interest groups that reflect the rich diversity of our membership. Whether you are a licensed MFT, pre-licensed student or intern, or associate psychotherapist, I wholeheartedly welcome you to our community and sincerely hope you will make it yours.
Please browse our website and learn about everything our chapter has to offer. Come back often as we are constantly adding to our site. I invite you to register for one of our monthly Café CAMFT meetings or an innovative program on a weekend and get acquainted with us. You will find that our members are friendly and eager to welcome you to our community.
Our organization is run by a volunteer board and several volunteer committees without whom our chapter would be unable to provide the opportunities and support you deserve. If you would like to volunteer, please give me or any board member a call or email, and we'll help you get connected.
If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or other feedback, please email or call either me or any board member.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us, we hope to see you soon!
