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.”
Racial and Social Justice Pledge: RECAMFT is committed to equity including addressing structural racism and systemic injustice. We endeavor to be inclusive and value individuals from all ethnicities, ages, races, sexual orientations, genders, languages, abilities, religions, citizenship statuses, and socioeconomic backgrounds into our chapter and into treatment.
We strive to advocate, educate, collaborate, and strategize for positive racial and social justice change within our membership and our community.
Our President's Welcome
from Gina Culver, MS, LMFT
Welcome to the Redwood Empire Chapter of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. We live in one of the most beautiful places in California. As the 2023 President I want to offer a warm welcome to our community, including those considering membership, our associates, students, trainees, and current members.
RECAMFT has so 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 towards licensure. Our members are warm, supportive, caring, and passionate about the work we do, our clients, and colleagues. Our Board of Directors is welcoming and knowledgeable. I enjoyed serving as our Programs Committee Chair, and being a member of both the Racial and Social Justice and Scholarship, Honors and Awards Committees. It has been an amazing three years since joining RECAMFT in 2019 and I am excited to serve as our President in 2023.
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 dies down, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regina "Gina" Culver, MS, LMFT
2023 RECAMFT President
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. Non-members who desire CEs can pay to purchase a CE certificate.
