Los Angeles Chapter  California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists


The 3000 Club

The Pre-Licensed 3000 Club is a special interest group within the Los Angeles Chapter of CAMFT designed to serve the needs of our pre-licensed members. We assist and support students, trainees and interns by providing the space to network and connect with colleagues who are in a similar stage of licensure and share experiences about the journey towards achieving 3000 hours.

Throughout the year, the 3000 Club presents a variety of informative workshops, presentations, informal networking activities and social gatherings that are geared towards supporting our pre-licensed members specifically. Our goals are to foster successful transitions to licensure, build stronger relationships within the therapist community and enhance the professional involvement of the next generation of therapists.

The 3000 Hour Club Connection is an informal networking opportunity for students, trainees, interns and licensed practitioners to discuss the MFT licensing experience.

  • Ever feel isolated, confused or frustrated with the process? 
  • Do you want to connect with colleagues at varying levels of licensure? 
  • Would you like to share self-care ideas?
