Happy New Year! I feel like we all deserve a collective pat on the back as we continue to persevere through this time in history. Even though there continues to be a lot that we are navigating, I can’t help but feel energized and inspired for what is to come at the beginning of the year. One thing I am looking forward to is our upcoming New Year’s gathering. We are doing everything we can to create a safe environment in which we can finally come together in person. I hope to see you there!

Also, you may or may not be aware that the “No Surprises Act” just recently went into effect and has implications on our practice requirements. Despite the name, many (myself included) have been very surprised by the arrival of this act, and there seems to be ongoing questions about what precisely we are required to do. There are resources provided by CAMFT in this newsletter, and as more resources become available, they will be shared with all of you!

Lastly, the finalization of our board nominations process is still underway, and as such it is not too late if you are interested in joining the board! I am excited to announce that it has been confirmed that Catherine Rodriguez will be joining the board as our newest 3000 Hour Club Chair. We are fortunate to have Catherine join our team, and I am already excited by the ideas she has for tending to the needs of our pre-licensed chapter members. Welcome Catherine!
