Peter Sadler, LMFT

2023 Marin CAMFT President

This is my final newsletter as President, and I want to express my gratitude for all of the support and kindness received over the past year from board members, volunteers and members. This incredible year would not have been possible without each of our amazing board members and volunteers.

I am excited about what the coming year will bring for Marin CAMFT and membership!

With sincere regards,

Peter Sadler
President, Marin CAMFT

Marin CAMFT Members:
Update your profile in the Online Therapist Directory

Hello Marin CAMFT community! As your new president for 2024, I wanted to share a positive new feature that we as the board have decided to offer our members.

Starting in the next few months, we will be advertising our Marin CAMFT Online Therapist Directory in the local Marin Living newsletter. We feel that this brings an added benefit to our chapter's membership, as this easily clickable link will bring those seeking therapy in Marin County to our directory where we are listed by specialty, insurance, in person and telehealth, and other defining features of our profiles. We think that this will help those in the Marin community at large to find a qualified, licensed therapist that fits their needs in an easily accessible place, while expanding the referral sources available to Marin CAMFT members.

We wanted to give our current Marin CAMFT members some time to make sure that your directory entries are up-to-date and filled out with the most accurate information possible. To access your directory listing please go onto the Marin CAMFT website and log in (you can find the login button at the top right of the screen). Once you have logged into your personal Marin CAMFT account, click on your name on the banner, to access your profile and directory listing. There you can edit your profile to add any new services that you offer or remove anything that you no longer provide. Don't want to be listed? No problem, you can set your profile to hidden. Want more tips for editing the profile?  The Members Help Pages have several topics that may be useful.

We hope this adds a positive benefit to all our members, and also will help the Marin community as a whole find qualified therapists to fit their needs from our chapter's membership.

Membership Renewals Happening Now

Renewals for most memberships are due on January 1

Thank you to those members who have already renewed! Many of our members are on auto-pay, which is the default membership setting in member accounts upon sign-up, so your payment will process automatically. Step-by-step instructions for turning off auto-pay are in our Help FAQ. (Note that the membership level may still say "autorenew" even when the auto-pay option has been turned off.)

Even those on our free prelicensed and emeritus memberships still need to go through a quick renewal step, to keep memberships active. Please follow the instructions in the emails sent for your specific membership.

3,000-Hour Club

Students, Trainees, and Associates, look for more events in the Fall.

It was a busy year for the Marin CAMFT 3000 Hour Club

as we continued to build community among pre-licensed members. We held a combination of zoom and in person events to network, share knowledge and support each other on our journey to licensure.   

Just in the past few months, we hosted a joint meeting with our pre-licensed colleagues in the 3,000 Hour Club at East Bay CAMFT.

We also arranged a table at a College of Marin career fair to encourage a more diverse population to consider a career as a therapist within Marin.
