PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Is it Summer yet? I have been in Truckee the last few days where it snowed on the daffodils and was so cold that my dog wrote me a note saying she wanted to go home early.

We have good news for our Board and our Chapter. We are welcoming two new board members: Lynn Finnell, LMFT who will serve as Membership Chair. Lynn, who has been in our community as an addiction specialist, has some fun ideas for broadening the opportunities for members to get to know each other better. I’m excited because we haven’t had anyone actively looking for ways to engage our members beyond the luncheons and salons. And, we are happy that Pam Hughes, LMFT who is relatively new to our community, has volunteered to be our Continuing Education Chairperson. Pam brings organizational talents from a former career as an organization specialist. We will be profiling Lynn and Pam in our next newsletter. Stay tuned.

We are saying goodbye and a huge thank you to Camilla Mitchell who has served as Continuing Education Chair for the last two years. Camilla’s organizational talents and her unflappable nature have been a great gift to our chapter. (She has settled me down a number of times.) Camilla will be focusing on her certificate training in Somatic Therapy as well as a full practice in her very own first office . Thank you, Camilla and congratulations on all your successes. It was not that long ago when Camilla attended our chapter as an associate.

A shout out also to Kevin Glenn, Associate PCC, who is working with Robin DeFilippi as co-chair of the 3000 Hour Club. Kevin brings a big dose of energy to this roll and has reached out across disciplines to bring in social workers, psychiatric nurses, as well as MFT associates. Way to go Kevin!

Mark your calendars for July 12th when Judy Zappacosta, LMFT will present on dreams and the imagination in clinical practice. Judy teaches nationally and internationally and is the author of “Pearls: Defining Moments in our Lives”. She has trained with sandplay founder, Dora Kalff and Jungian Analyst, Marion Woodman. We are in for a treat. Judy has devoted her career to this area of study.

Lastly, a big thank you to Jared Phillips for his enthusiastic and informative presentation on Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT) in clinical practice. Jared’s love and appreciation for the concepts and principles of DBT was truly contagious. If you want more information on what Jared is up to, see his website.

Thank you to all the Board members. You are a treasure to me and to our Chapter.

Enjoy the next few months.
