How to hide your email or phone number in your public Directory profile




New Membership Application:

Go to the Online Membership Application (in the "Membership" menu or click HERE).

Select the desired membership level and click the "Next" button at the bottom right of the page.

Complete the Member Application. If you do not want information to show in the Therapist Directory, leave the field blank. However, we do require your name, email, phone and mailing address. Your mailing address will not show and you have the option of excluding your email or phone from the directory.

The Short Description (199 characters max) is what appears in the initial list of therapists. The Short and the (longer) Description (2950 characters max) appear in your profile. The entry fields are small so it's best to create the text in Word (or another application) and paste it into the field. Word also lets you check the number of characters (with spaces), go to the "Tools" menu and select "Word Count".

Note: Under "Areas of Emphasis," please DO NOT select more than 5 areas. Any selections after the first 5 will be removed (this is done for reasons of fairness to other therapists in the directory). Click HERE for more on why.

Don't forget to upload your picture; it makes a difference.

Go to the bottom of the page and enter the Code as displayed (this is for security reasons).

Click "Next" at the very bottom right of the page.

Review and confirm that the information is correct. Click the "Confirm and proceed with payment" button.

  • If you would like to pay online:  Click the "Pay online" button to pay with your credit or debit card.

               P.O. Box 91608
               Santa Barbara, CA  93190

Existing & New Members, accessing your profile for the first time:

When this NEW website was created your old password was not imported, so you will need to set a NEW password.

Click on "Forgot password" to the right of the login button (at the upper right of this page - look carefully, it's there).

Enter the email address you used when you created your initial Santa Barbara Chapter of CAMFT membership and click submit. If you are unsure of the email address, you might check the Therapist Directory, if you are in the directory, it will show your email. If you elected NOT to appear in the Therapist Directory you will have to contact the membership@santabarbaratherapy.org.

An email will be sent to you containing a link to setup your password.

If you DO NOT receive a response from the system the email you used may not be in the system.  If you have another email you might want to try it. Also, remember that your Santa Barbara Chapter membership is separate from the state CAMFT membership. If you are not in our system, the easiest thing to do would be to sign up as a new member (click HERE). Or you can contact us and someone from the membership committee will check to see if you are in the system and update or enter your email address. Be sure to give your full name.  If your membership has expired you will still have to renew your Chapter membership before you can proceed.

After setting up a new password, you can now login to your profile via the login box (at the upper right of this page).
