New Membership Application:

Go to the Online Membership Application (in the "Join RECAMFT" menu or click HERE).

Select the desired membership level and click the "Next" button at the bottom right of the page.

Complete the Member Application. If you do not want information to show in the directory, leave the field blank. However, we do require your name, email, phone and mailing address. Your mailing address will not show and you have the option of excluding your email or phone from the directory.

The Short Description (199 characters max) is what appears in the initial list of therapists. The Short and the (longer) Description (2950 characters max) appear in your profile. The entry fields are small so it's best to create the text in Word (or another application) and paste it into the field. Word also lets you check the number of characters (with spaces), go to the "Tools" menu and select "Word Count."

Note: Please do not select more than the maximum allowed. Any selections after the maximum allowed will be removed (this is done for reasons of fairness to other therapists in the directory). See "Why Specialization Selections are Limited" at the bottom of this page for more details.

Don't forget to upload your picture; it makes a difference.

You will need to set a new password to login to the new system for the first time.

Click on "Forgot password" (to the right of the login button, on the left side of the page, below the menu - look carefully, it's there).

An email will be sent to you containing a link to setup your password.

If you never receive a response the email may not be in the system. If you have another email you might try it. Also, remember that RECAMFT membership is separate from the state CAMFT membership.

Why Specialization Selections Are Limited

This is done in an attempt to keep the lists focused on our top areas and for reasons of fairness to clients and other therapists in the directory. It is tempting to check all the areas we have interest and some expertise in.

We are in a friendly competition with other therapist for clients. If one therapist checked 15  another checked 3 (that are true areas of specialty), the one with 3 would be at a disadvantage. Also, the potential client would not be as well served by this.

So we have set a limit. Unfortunately the system allows you to check more than the maximum allowed. So in the mean time, we will be reviewing the profiles and removing any more than maximum allowed.

We hope that this explanation addresses the "Why".
