Letter from the Board

May 1, 2019

Greetings Member! 

Our Introduction to EMDR by Kim Johnson was well attended and well received. Thank you, Kim!

Today is the last day to register so - Please join us for our May speaker, Dr. Tracy McCarthy who will be speaking to us about functional medicine as an approach to anxiety and depression. Tracy has been a great help to me and several of my clients. She is warm, compassionate and approachable. If you are new to the practice of functional medicine, I am sure you will find her talk extremely enlightening. I hope you will also find her as approachable as I do.   We hope to see you there for an opportunity to learn about his important topic and to network with other professionals in the area.  The 3000 Club will be having free coffee and donuts for and networking from 8:30am-9:30am - feel free to drop in.

We will be providing our annual Law and ethics training in July. It is not too early to sign up.

We hope you notice our new streamlined version of the monthly Newsletter.

As always, please feel free to reach out to me or any other board member with thoughts, concerns or suggestions.

Peace,

Ann Leber

Presenter Bio:

Finley Terhune (they/them/their) is a non-binary, transmasculine identified MFTA and PCCA, as well as Counseling Program Manager at Gender Health Center, a 501.c3 non-profit serving the transgender, LGBQIA+, and other communities in the greater Sacramento (and further!) area. Finley's passions in the field are varied, but currently they work primarily with trans identified youth (including foster youth), and their families/guardians, as well as in relational counseling where one or more partners is transitioning and/or exploring their gender identity. 

Finley's primary theoretical orientation is Queer Informed Narrative Therapy, which is a modality that focuses on the contextualizing, externalizing, and deprivatizing of not only mental health concerns themselves, but also the therapeutic process (to be exceedingly brief about it). As many narrative therapists may say, "The Person is not the Problem, the Problem is the Problem". While QINT informs much of Finley's practice, they are equally devoted to client centered treatment in which the client(s) are actively engaged in the collaboration and form that their time in therapy takes.
