Where family health care decision makers go first to find you

Creating a web page for your practice, using Facebook, Linkedin and other social media are sure ways to drive new client traffic your way. Want some tried and true (and pretty darn cheap) ideas on using social media to boost your clientele. Click the headers below to get started or enhance your Social Media presence:

Google Adwords Spend as much or as little as you want to get your message and information out to the public. You only pay when someone clicks on your ad. Here’s an overview of how Google Adwords works.


Facebook Fan Page  If you really want to leverage social networking and promote yourself, business or organization, then creating a Facebook Fan Page is a great way to go. You control the message and allow your “fans” to respond. You can even delete fan comments that are “unfortunate.” Remember, every time someone shares something from your fan page on their Facebook page, your audience goes up exponentially, meaning more people than you ever imagined are seeing your message and are becoming potential clients. Learn more about Facebook Fan Pages and get step by step directions on setting up your practice’s fan page.


LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with over 75 million members and growing rapidly. LinkedIn connects you to your trusted contacts and helps you exchange knowledge, ideas, and opportunities with a broader network of professionals. Connect with professional sources of referrals and others who can help you advance your career


Wordpress is a website development tool that is particularly easy to use and extremely affordable. If you are looking to create an entire website dedicated to your practice, Wordpress is the way to go. It allows you to fill an empty template that will go directly onto your live webpage. Wordpress even allows you to use SEO optimization, which will use key words and phrases to boost your website to the top of a search engine results list.

  • Letter from the President - Upcoming CTAMFT Conference 


    Dear Treasured Members and friends of CTAMFT;


    “Try not to resist the changes that come your way.  Instead, let life live through you.  And do not worry that your life is turning upside down.  How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come” - Rumi


    Whether you are with us for the first time; if you are a student, an associate member, newly licensed, or a seasoned colleague change is upon us all at CTAMFT.  We have been preparing for many months now the impending transition that has been in the works for a long while at our national level within AAMFT, which will culminate during this summer 2017 by-law vote.  Please participate and let your voice be heard.  Like you, my role as a Marriage and Family Therapist is not just a title or a job but a life choice and a personal identity.  Our professional association has been the hub for many of us; to learn, grow, and connect.  For countless members who have partaken in leadership roles here at CTAMFT you have invested your life force and your passion for the practice and profession of Marriage and Family Therapy.  You have all made an enormous impact on your friends, colleagues, professionals within our state and nationally, and ultimately the clients we serve and impact.  For this, I wish to thank you as a collective body of people making a difference in the world, in my world, in each other’s world.  


    AAMFT’s direction is changing, and with that, we here in Connecticut at CTAMFT are prepared to adapt and grow into the new challenges ahead.  The geographic divisions will be replaced with interest networks, special topical groups and a variety of other forms during the next few years.  A favorite quote of mine is “I know that when one door closes another always opens…but man, these hallways are a bitch”.  Your CTAMFT Board volunteers are now the hallway monitors, lighting the way and guiding us to our new direction.  We have a strong and solid plan that will carry us through the transition from where we have been to where we are going.  I am confident in the new team that is forming here at CTAMFT, these leaders are filled with new ideas, youthful energy, and are embracing the challenges ahead of us.  They know what is important; protecting our licenses, keeping us employed, creating an opportunity to connect and grow.  I am certain our future is bright.  I see the light of the door opening far at the end of the hallway.  Let’s join collected while we walk a bit in the darkness of uncertainty, but let us walk together knowing, as only MFT’s certainly know, it’s the relationships that count the most. 


    With Love,


    Heather M Ehinger
