Welcome to the East Bay Chapter of CAMFT (The California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists). Our community is made up of professionals motivated around helping and supporting those we work with. We provide our members with a variety of opportunities to grow as professionals and increase their community connection with others in the mental health field. This is established through different networking events, our E-Tree, CEU presentations offered at low fees to members, a therapist finder, a monthly newsletter, a mentorship program, monthly support meetings for interns/newly licensed clinicians, and a variety of monthly social events. Our chapter is here to support you in your professional growth. Please feel free to contact us and let us know how we can best serve you.

Looking for Help?

Use our East Bay Therapist Finder directory of marriage and family therapists in or near the San Francisco East Bay region.

We are a professional organization of psychotherapists who are relationship specialists. We help individuals, couples, and families -- of all types, backgrounds, and sexual orientations -- to work through difficulties and enhance their well-being.

People often find therapy helpful at life's milestones, such as courtship, commitment, child-rearing (birth/adoption, discipline, communication, empty nest or never empty nest), separation/divorce, and aging. Other common relationship issues include money, sexuality, power dynamics, depression, anxiety, abuse, self-esteem, loss and grieving.

Seeking a Marriage and Family Therapist or other mental health professional to assist with life's difficulties is a sign of courage and a step in the right direction.
