RECAMFT is an organization dedicated to maintaining the professional standards and ethics as defined by the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT.org). We provide the local Sonoma County community with information about the services and expertise of Marriage and Family Therapists and offer professional networking, educational activities and events for the membership.
Our Mission: "The purpose of RECAMFT is to promote and maintain professional competence and integrity with knowledge, innovation, compassion, humor and respect for human dignity and diversity. We do this by providing opportunities for networking, education and community outreach.”
2017 President's Welcome
from Reyna Seminara, LMFT
Welcome to the Redwood Empire CAMFT chapter! Feedback we get from members and visitors alike, is that we are a warm and welcoming chapter. For ten months each year, we offer members free CEUs at interesting and informative trainings. Then, because we video our trainings, they are available to members on YouTube through the Members’ Only section of our website.
If you are already a member, we are happy you are with RECAMFT. If you are thinking of joining, the trainings are only one of the benefits of belonging to RECAMFT.
Reyna Seminara, LMFT
