New Membership Application:

Go to the Online Membership Application (in the "Membership" menu or click HERE).

Select the desired membership level and click the "Next" button at the bottom right of the page.

Complete the Member Application. If you do not want information to show in the directory, leave the field blank. However, we do require your name, email, phone and mailing address. Your mailing address will not show and you have the option of excluding your email or phone from the directory.

The Short Description (199 characters max) is what appears in the initial list of therapists. The Short and the (longer) Description (2950 characters max) appear in your profile. The entry fields are small so it's best to create the text in Word (or another application) and paste it into the field. Word also lets you check the number of characters (with spaces), go to the "Tools" menu and select "Word Count".

Note: Under "Areas of Emphasis," please do not select more than 10 areas. Any selections after the first 10 will be removed (this is done for reasons of fairness to other therapists in the directory). Click HERE for more on why.

Don't forget to upload your picture; it makes a difference.

Go to the bottom of the page and enter the Code as displayed (this is for security reasons).

Click "Next" at the very bottom right of the page.

Select Payment Method:

  -- Select "Online" to pay with a credit or debit card. Click "Next" and you will be taken to the PayPal page where you will enter your credit card info to complete the transaction.

  -- Select "Manual" to mail in a check to the address shown under Payment Instructions. Click the "Confirm" button on the right of the page. Print the page for your records.

You will receive an email confirming this transaction.

Your new membership will be activated after your application is reviewed, your CAMFT membership is verified, payment for membership fee is received, and once you are voted in by the Board of Directors at one of our monthly (usually) board meetings.



Existing Members, accessing your profile for the first time:

An email will be sent to you containing a link to setup your password.

If you never receive a response the email may not be in the system. If you have another email you might try it. Also, remember that OC CAMFT membership is separate from the state CAMFT membership.
