Opening New Doors

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Spring is here and summer is coming. May was full of celebrations, Mother’s Day, prom, graduation, Memorial Day. June brings Father’s Day, more graduations, the end or pause of the school year, Flag Day, and the beginning of summer.

What are the new doors that you find yourself opening as you move forward into summer? What new things have you been doing? What new paths has your curiosity been leading you down lately in your professional and personal life?

Each month LA-CAMFT is full of new doors to open and new things to do as our curiosity leads us forward personally and professionally down new paths. June brings not only our monthly Networking Event on June 21; we also have our Bowling Party, Leadership Retreat, 3000 Club gathering, Board of Directors Full and Executive Board Meetings, Diversity Committee Therapists of Color Support Group, and, of course, this edition of Voices.

One of the new doors I find myself opening as I’m moving forward, is becoming the editor of Voices. Writing each month’s Editor’s Notes is a new path for me as I reach out to connect with you, the reader—and as I join the ever-growing community of LA-CAMFT Voices’ writers and contributors. Connecting with the ongoing monthly writers and reaching out to new ones is one of the many new things I find myself doing, and enjoying, as editor.

Each one of us has heard so many amazing stories from the therapists and allied professionals in our community about the work they do. These stories are important. Each of these voices, points of view, and experiences deserves to be heard. We need to share them. As editor of Voices I can be part of making that happen and I am excited about that. I hope you are, too.

Our LA-CAMFT Chapter is a rich, warm, and welcoming community of licensed and pre-licensed LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, and Related and Affiliated Professionals and Organizations who are interested in being a part of our professional community, one that provides us with a plethora of abundant opportunities for connection, support, referrals, jobs and or pre-licensed placements, and the latest in professional development. It is from this enriching and diverse community that we draw the articles and profiles that make up each month’s edition of Voices.

My hope is that each edition of Voices will not only pique your curiosity but that the articles you read will provide you with support, information, resources, and ideas for working successfully with the clients at your job or placement or practice and will also connect you with others in our chapter, help you build your professional network, get you more referrals and professional opportunities, and provide new doors for you to open and be curious about as you move forward in your job, practice or placement.
