Just because you are through the internships and licensure challenges, does not mean you don't need continued support. It can feel daunting to navigate the continued obstacles that clinical fellow members may feel. This page is dedicated to resources specifically for members at this stage of their professional journey.
Being a supervisor contributes so much to our field but also the future of our profession. As you can see by the map, Washington State is in need of even more AAMFT Approved Supervisors.
If you are already a supervisor or candidate or you have been considering it, please check out the resources below to support you in this invaluable service to our Washington State community.
Throughout our training to become a Clinical Fellow we often had a structured way to connect. Once we arrive at this stage of our career, we might need a little help to find ways to continue to connect, consult, and network. WAMFT wants to help! Check out these resources below.
As a clinical fellow you may find it challenging to network with colleagues. Check out what WAMFT has to offer in this area.

We believe it is our responsibility as therapists to cultivate a growing awareness of the dominant (and potentially dominating) stories in our society and to develop ways of collaboratively examining the effects of those stories when we sense them at work in the lives and relationships of the people who consult with us.
– Freedman and Combs
"In the consumer culture of marriage, commitments last as long as the other person is meeting our needs. We still believe in commitment, because we know that committed relationships are good for us, but powerful voices coming from inside and outside tell us that we are suckers if we settle for less than we think we need and deserve in our marriage. Most baby boomers and their offspring carry in our heads the internalized voice of the consumer culture-to encourage us to stop working so hard or to get out of a marriage that is not meeting our current emotional needs."
-William J Doherty
