President's Message 
by Jacqui Gerritsen, LMFT

"Here at SCV-CAMFT, we are working to adjust to this new world of doing everything remotely and online.  We are discovering that, while we miss seeing each other in person, there are some upsides to gathering online." 

Cultural Humility with Couples of Color 

Interview with Shirani M. Pathak, LCSW

“Growing up as a Brown immigrant woman, I thought I knew all there was to know about race, racism, and the racial injustices we see every day. When I learned about cultural humility I realized how wrong I was.”

Community Focus 
Interview with Maritza Henry, LMFT

"l call it the ‘Corona bonus’ because if we didn’t have this Coronavirus, we wouldn’t be at this place with the movement for social and racial justice."

Marty Klein on Couples 
by Marty Klein, LMFT, PhD

"With video therapy, unfortunately, some of our tools are diminished or lost. It’s harder to create the norm that clients do nothing else during session. It’s almost impossible to use our body to communicate. It’s much harder to use silence effectively."

Finding My Voice 
by Dariah Brown, AMFT

"After enduring 12 months of heavy didactic coursework in grad school, I felt prepared to begin my career as a therapist, but was that what I wanted to do for the rest of my life? Was I mature enough, or responsible enough to hold someone’s pain?"

Change is Inevitable 
by LaDonna Silva, LMFT

"Remembering Don Hadlock, founder of the Process Therapy Institute, reckoning with the loss of a mentor and friend, and acknowledging the inescapable reality of change.”

Volunteer Recognition
