Dr. Bob Casanova, PsyD, LMFTOur President's Welcome

from Dr. Bob Casanova, PsyD, LMFT

Welcome to the Redwood Empire Chapter of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. This year is the Redwood Empire Chapter of CAMFT's 50th Anniversary.  CAMFT was established in 1964 and our chapter was founded a decade later in 1974.

RECAMFT has much to offer its members. We have trainings each month (except July/August) offering members and community attendees the opportunity to earn continuing education hours. Our members are passionate about the work they do, and they are warm, supportive, and caring with those whom we treat and with fellow colleagues. Our Board of Directors is welcoming and knowledgeable.

While we are navigating the changes to our lives from the COVID-19 pandemic, RECAMFT is dedicated to having safer networking opportunities as the surge subsides, including some in-person events. Stay tuned to see what excitement we have in store for you! If you have questions, ideas, or are interested in learning more about our committees or organization, please reach out to me at

The Best CE Bargain! You can earn ALL your CEs for renewal, simply by attending the monthly RECAMFT meetings and taking our Law & Ethics six-hour seminar in the spring. It's the best CE bargain anywhere and includes fun networking with your colleagues, a wide variety of interesting speakers and topics, a chance to get known in the community for what you do, and great snacks!

Monthly meetings are open to the public and no charge. RECAMFT provides CEs for professionals who are licensed with the CA Board of Behavioral Sciences. There is no charge to members for 1.5 or more CEs at most general monthly meetings put on by this chapter. Non-members who desire CEs can pay to purchase a CE certificate.
