Dear Community Members,
What a beautiful way to end February, having a snowy winter storm come through and paint our hills with white. Spring is playfully approaching, and the days are getting longer. We can now stretch out our arms, take a great big morning yawn and make our way out of the lantern light cave where we were resting and reenergizing all winter. Welcome March!
Thank you to all who participated participated in our first ever Speed Networking event on February February 17th at Sunset Center. The room was full of uplifting energy and we got to meet each other in a fresh, new way. For those of you who missed it, there have been requests from your fellow chapter members to hold another speed networking event in the future. I can foresee this coming together again in the second half of 2023, upon popular demand. I feel the event reenergized us, and we will use that energy to carry us through the rest of the year.
We have some presentations drawing near that I am delighted to announce. Dr. Marshal Blatt, MD will be joining us for a presentation presentation on Pharmacology on Saturday, Saturday, April 15th from 9 - 11am. He has graciously graciously accepted the request of so many psychotherapists in our area who are eager to learn more about what’s happening in the world of pharmacology. Keep your eyes peeled for when registration registration opens. We have also invited invited Francis Weller, MFT to lead a full day workshop workshop entitled entitled “Grief Rituals”. He developed developed a style of psychotherapy he calls soul-centered psychotherapy. We’re looking forward to having him share his wisdom with us on July 15th.
Along with more formal events such as luncheons, workshops and mixers, we would like the chance to meet one another in a more informal way. We will be starting starting a new program program called Psych Hike. This will be a monthly monthly gathering of members members at hiking trails around Monterey County and will be held on the 4th Saturday of each month. We live in an area full of gorgeous outdoors and diverse terrain, so we will explore our backyard together. You will need to register on the website to join us each month, and it is FREE! The first Psych Hike will be on March 25th at 10am. The location for each month will be announced announced in an email blast. We’re looking looking forward to getting our bodies moving and getting out in nature where joy grows.
CAMFT will be holding holding their annual conference conference on May 5th and 6th in Santa Clara. All of our chapter members members have been awarded awarded $20 off their registration.

ALSO, we will be raffling raffling off a FREE registration to the conference. Be on the lookout for an email from us to enter your name in the raffle.
Our Member Spotlight is yet again in rotation. Every two months, we will choose a member to be featured in our newsletter and on the homepage of the website. This is a great way to get visibility for your practice and help your colleagues get to know you and your work better. We held a raffle at our last event and we are excited excited to have Michael Guichet, LMFT, as our member spotlight winner. We will choose our next spotlight winner at our April 15th event, so come with your business card to submit your name for the raffle. With gratitude, I appreciate your membership and participation in the Monterey County Chapter of CAMFT!
