Therapists of Color:
Navigating the Path of Career Mentorship

Perla Hollow, LMFT and Stara Shakti, LMFT

This event is an opportunity for trainees, associates, and newly licensed clinicians to learn about the basics of clinical mentoring. During this panel discussion, attendees can expect to gain valuable insight into the benefits of having a licensed clinical mentor, how to establish a strong mentor-mentee relationship, and an overview of the LA-CAMFT Therapists of Color (TOC) Mentorship Program. Joining us on the panel will be a previous TOC mentee and two LMFT clinicians who will share their experiences of being a part of the program and host a Q & A discussion. Attendees will leave with a greater understanding of what it means to have a mentor who supports their cultural identity and how that support can nurture their professional development as a mental health clinician.

Perla Hollow, MA, LMFT, is a Middle Eastern therapist in private practice in Manhattan Beach, CA providing therapy to children, adolescents, adults and families. Her specialties include utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to address anxiety, depression, phobias, body focused repetitive behaviors, and obsessive compulsive disorder. She also provides family therapy for families with challenges around child behavioral issues. Previously, she worked in community mental health at The Help Group Outpatient Services in both Van Nuys and Culver City. She has also received training in CBT at the CBT Treatment Center in Manhattan Beach. She earned her BA Degree in Psychology from the University of Southern California and a MA Degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. She is a first generation immigrant from Beirut, Lebanon who is passionate about psychotherapy as well as bridging the cultural gaps that exist in psychotherapy, especially for Middle Eastern therapists and clients. She is also excited about being the co-founder and co-facilitator of the LACAMFT MENA Therapist Community Group.

Stara Shakti is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Trauma Specialist with a private psychotherapy practice in Los Angeles, California. Stara helps young adults (in their 20s and 30s) who are queer (LGBTQ+), people of color (POC/BIPOC), first-gen American, and neurodivergent heal from past trauma so they can learn to love themselves, fully express who they are in the world, and have healthier adult relationships. www.StaraShaktiLMFT.com.
