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!!

Meet your RECAMFT
Prelicensed Director at Large!
Jessica Heaney, MFT Trainee
Hello to all my fellow RECAMFT Prelicensed Members, our supporters, and those of you considering a membership,
I am excited and grateful to be serving on the RECAMFT Board of Directors as the new Prelicensed Director at Large and Chair of the Prelicensed Committee. During my time thus far as a RECAMFT member I've enjoyed attending prelicensed events and discovered the prelicensed cohort has been one of many enriching benefits of my RECAMFT membership.
I have enjoyed my master's program at TUW’s (Touro University Worldwide) Clinical Marriage and Family Therapy / Professional Clinical Counseling Program and recently graduated! I interned for a year as a counselor at Social Advocates for Youth (SAY) with children ages 6-17 and their families. I was hired by Seneca after my graduation, and am excited to find out all that will entail. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and elders in long term care.
My experience with RECAMFT has been instrumental during these past two years. It has helped me grow as a clinician, and provided valuable networking and mentoring opportunities.
Please join our monthly support group meetings! We are back to meeting in person on the third Saturday monthly from 10 am to 12 pm for our Walk & Talks. I really look forward to meeting you.
Don't hesitate to drop me an email. I welcome your comments and ideas for prelicensed activities and programs moving forward. Please let me know how we can continue to make a difference for all our prelicensed members including me and YOU!
