"I am a WAMFT member to stay connected to my fellow Washington LMFTs and to remain informed about current changes to policies, laws, and requirements that impact the work we do for our local communities."
- Jocelyn Ribar, MA, LMFT
You may notice, there have been some changes to our membership categories, we made these shifts to align with AAMFT's new membership structure. The biggest change to note is that the previous categories of "Pre-Clinical" & "Clinical Fellow" have combined to make up the Professional Membership level.
Individuals who are interested in the field of marriage and family therapy but who are not eligible for one of our other membership categories are welcome to join as Affiliate members.
Each year, since 2004, the Washington Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (WAMFT) honors individuals who have contributed to the profession and practice of Marriage and Family Therapy, to our association, and to communities in the state of Washington. Please consider nominating an exceptional member of the community for recognition by WAMFT. All award recipients must be members of WAMFT except for those receiving the Family Advocacy Award.
