""Road to Licensure:

Strategies to Thrive to & Through Licensure""

Luke Martin, MBA

Dr. Christie Kederian, LMFT


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 together's 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, our virtual event will be in attendance with other fellow CAMFT chapters! Come ready to listen to:

  • Road to Licensure w/ Luke Martin, MBA, Esq (via CAMFT) - This presentation is intended to provide an overview of the licensing process for pre-licensees as they work toward licensure in marriage and family therapy. Topics to be discussed include: the marriage and family therapy licensing process; supervised experience requirements for applicants; supervisor qualifications and supervision requirements; licensing examinations; and common employment issues pre-licensees encounter with their supervisors.
  • The Thriving Therapist: How build a successful career as a pre-licensed MFT w/ Dr. Christie Kederian, LMFT (via SFV-CAMFT, special presentation) - In this workshop you will learn how to create a profitable, multi-passionate business as a therapist; branding & marketing tools you need to stand out through online and offline marketing strategies; how to create passive streams of income as a therapist; and creative ways to build your therapy career before you're licensed, and more!
