RECAMFT Mentorship - a no-cost benefit for RECAMFT prelicensed and newly licensed members
RECAMFT is delighted to offer a no-cost mentoring program to support our prelicensed members who are the future of our profession! RECAMFT Mentors are licensed therapists volunteering their time for about two hours each month.
Members are encouraged to call more than one licensed mentor to potentially have a wide variety of contact with professionals. Interns may use up to two hours/month with one or more Volunteer Mentors. This could be four 30 minute phone calls, or two one-hour face-to-face sessions.
Some of the ways to use our Volunteer Mentors:
To start using the RECAMFT Mentorship program, simply visit RECAMFT Mentorship and choose a mentor to get started. Look to see whether preferred contact is phone or email, and reach out. Supporting our RECAMFT Interns is important!!

Prelicensed Director at Large!
Jenna Griffith, Associate PCC
I am thrilled and honored to be serving on the board as the new Pre-licensed chair and Director-At-Large. I recently moved to Sonoma County from Colorado, and I couldn’t imagine a better way to get involved with the professional community here. I am currently an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor in private practice, under the supervision of Emily Morrison, LMFT. I specialize in working with adults, adolescents, and kids through yoga and mindfulness.
It is also a very exciting time to be a pre-licensed therapist in CA, as our titles have officially changed from Interns to Associates.
As of January 1, 2018, the titles for marriage and family therapist interns and professional clinical counselor interns have changed, as follows:
As a member of the board, I hope to continue the work of past pre-licensed chairs in connecting Associate members with helpful resources along the path to licensure. We’re always exploring opportunities for expanding on the in-person and online platforms currently available to pre-licensed members. Please check out the “RECAMFT Prelicensees” Group on Facebook if you haven’t already. I look forward to seeing our community grow!
