"Learn It, Live it, Launch It"

 Carolyn Jordan

Our Annual Pre-licensed Event is set to give you all the information needed for your pre-licensed journey! While our Pre-licensed "3000 Club" Special Interest Group (SIG) gatherings are casual get-togethers to support each other individually, our annual event gives you specific tools and stories and services to guide you into licensure and your dream practice.

This year, come ready to listen to:   

  • The Road to Licensure with Bradley Muldrow, JD (CAMFT) - He will provide an overview of the MFT licensing process, including the laws and regulations pertaining to gaining hours of supervised experience, the requirements and qualifications of supervisors, the licensing exams, advertising guidelines, and employment-related issues. This course will also discuss the most recent changes to the MFT licensing laws as set forth in AB93.
  • How to Prepare and Pass MFT Exams with Amanda Rowan and Robin Gluck (Therapist Development Center) - They will be presenting on the licensing exam process for MFTs. They will provide an overview of the Law and Ethics and Clinical Exams, including how to most effectively prepare for the exam. They will also provide an opportunity for questions and answers regarding the exams and their test prep materials.
  • The Journey to Launching Your Private Practice with Ariel Cohen - He will be speaking about his experience going from agency work to private practice and what he learned along the way. How do I start? What is my specialty? Where do I find clients? These questions and more will be answered in this presentation - how to launch your own practice, the key differences between private practice and agency work, and the variety of options that exist while completing your hours toward licensure.

    Bradley Muldrow, JD is a CAMFT staff attorney. 

    As a staff attorney, Brad takes member phone calls regarding law and ethics issues and contributes articles on those subjects to CAMFT's publication, the Therapist. Prior to joining CAMFT’s legal team, Brad worked on litigation and regulatory matters as an attorney for San Diego Gas & Electric Company. Since becoming an attorney, Brad has given law and ethics presentations to attorneys and judges as a member of the J. Clifford Wallace Inn of Court. He also serves as a board member and Communications Chair for the Earl B. Gilliam Bar Foundation, a San Diego-based nonprofit, and leads discussion groups for inmates at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility focusing on spirituality and personal development.

    Amanda Rowan, LCSW is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and the founder and CEO of the Therapist Development Center. Since 2008, Amanda and her team have helped 25,000+ therapists nation-wide pass their state licensing exams with confidence. Many report "learning more than they did in graduate school." Amanda graduated with honors from Dartmouth College where she majored in neuroscience and completed her senior thesis on the neuroscience of the learning process. She earned her Masters in Social Welfare at UCLA. Amanda has had a lifelong passion for teaching. She is a gifted instructor whose background includes teaching MFT and Social Work licensing exam preparation with Gerry Grossman Seminars, coaching for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and teaching Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and Dental Admission Test (DAT) for Kaplan Test Prep. Amanda first conceived the idea of the Therapist Development Center when she was studying for her clinical licensing exams. She reviewed two of the top programs in California, however when she took the actual exams she realized that the programs had done very little to prepare her. At the time, the passing rate for social workers in California was 50%. Amanda realized quickly that there was a critical need for a program that provided the clinical review and test taking strategies that reflected how the material was tested. Amanda hired a fellow social worker and purchased licensing test prep materials from 10+ companies to see if any of them were teaching the test-taking strategies and reasoning skills people needed to pass. They weren't. So after she put her first born to bed, she started developing her own study systems.

    Robin Gluck, LMFT is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the San Francisco Bay Area and the Director of Exam Preparation and Special Projects of the Therapist Development Center. She has a bachelor's degree from Emory University, a master's degree in public policy from American University, and a master's degree in marriage and family counseling from San Francisco State University. Robin pursued her degree in Marriage and Family Therapy after working as a policy researcher and advocate for many years and recognizing that her passion was to work directly with people trying to overcome hardships. Robin spent over four years providing therapy to children, adolescents, and adults in community-based mental health agencies. Robin found the TDC program helped her to learn all of the material, overcome the anxiety that she initially felt while preparing for licensing exam, and become a better therapist. She now enjoys being able to coach associates and share her personal experience with those who are preparing for the MFT exams.

    Ariel Cohen, LMFT is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and takes great pride in helping young people navigate difficult life experiences. Through building strong relationships with children, teens, and their families, Ariel helps them on their path toward social-emotional health and well-being. With compassion and understanding, he works with each individual and family to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to achieving through therapy. Ariel's core area of expertise is working with children and families with special needs, and he feels passionate about supporting them in his practice. With several years experience working in school, community-based, and private practice settings, Ariel brings a blend of relevant knowledge and skills from all of these professional experiences to his current therapy practice in Woodland Hills, CA. In addition to his practice as a therapist, Ariel has become involved in CAMFT as a volunteer over the course of several years. He served as SFV-CAMFT President in 2016, has served on several State CAMFT committees, and continues to serve as Chair of the SFV- CAMFT Outreach Committee. This involvement has been a great added-value to his growth in private practice, and he recommends all therapists consider volunteering with CAMFT at some point in their career.



    Carolyn Jordan has been a professional photographer for nearly 20 years, specializing in portrait and event photography. She turned a modeling career in front of the camera into a career behind the camera. She has also recently received her Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and will be semi-retiring from her photography career as she focuses on becoming a licensed therapist. Carolyn was thrilled to provide her services to her fellow clinicians at last year's event, as she understands the importance of a quality portrait on a therapist's website in letting our clients know who we are.
