Matthew Evans
President, LA-CAMFT

Dear Friends,

It is truly an honor to take over the reins of LA-CAMFT. For those of you who I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet, my name is Matthew Evans and I am the 2020 President of LA-CAMFT. I have enjoyed my involvement in this organization and have held the following positions: President-Elect, Pre-licensed Board Representative, 3000 Club Chair, and Social Media Chair. My main goals over the next year are to expand LA-CAMFT outreach and events throughout our chapter’s district and to advocate for mental health issues and underserved populations (professionals and clients alike). Collaboration and inclusion are very important to me and I hope to embody these qualities as president of LA-CAMFT. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and listening to your ideas. 

I would like to personally thank Clearview Treatment Center for hosting our 2019 Holiday Party at their Venice location. We celebrated the holiday season as we sang Christmas carols, announced the 2020 LA-CAMFT Board of Directors, and honored those attendees who have become licensed within the past year. Becoming licensed is a strenuous process not for the faint of heart. So take a moment during this busy time of year to reflect on your journey and all you have accomplished. Congratulations! 

As I take on the role of President, Christina Castorena will be stepping into the Past President position and Jenni Wilson into the President-Elect position. Thank you, Christina for everything you have done as the leader of LA-CAMFT over the past year. You have embodied the theme of celebration and have brought a steadfast and unwavering presence to our organization.

I hope you have all had a great start to the new year and am looking forward to all we can accomplish together over the next 12 months.
