 Greetings Fellow Healers!


The other day I took a walk through my Southern California neighborhood and noticed that bright yellow wild flowers and soft pink ice plants were blooming in all their wild and magnificent glory!  I also noticed that I found them in abundance in the yards that I typically consider less manicured, less under control, and quite often, less appealing.  And yet! Out of their more unruly state came great bursts of brilliance and beauty!  This gave me pause...and a smile.  Maybe there's a message here... ;->  


Something to contemplate...

Welcome SouthBay LACPA!

Meets  Every 3rd Friday


Equally exciting for me in the South Bay of LA is the recent formation of the LACPA SouthBay chapter, ably headed up by Dr. Beverly Mitchell of Del Amo hospital and perfectly hosted by Dr. Mo Gelbart of Gelbart & Associates and Thelma McMillan Center.  This new LACPA chapter gives me a place to connect with fellow local psychologists! Regardless of the organizations with whom you network, I strongly believe it is important to network within your own discipline as well.  Since Professional Development is the 3rd part of Moonstone Center's Mission, you know how much we value Relational NETWORKING!!!  We look forward to seeing you out there!  If you are a Psychologist in the SouthBay of LA, you must come check out this great Networking Group!  If you are not yet a member of LACPA, visit www.lapsych.org to join!  Contact Dr. Beverly Mitchell for more info on future meetings!


We Love Networking with You!

Julie Brown, Moonstone Center's Events Manager has been busy meeting and greeting and connecting with many of you on my behalf and on behalf of Moonstone Center all over LA County!  This has resulted in wonderful connections with new colleagues and collaborators as well as reconnections with long-since-connected-with friends, colleagues, and mentors from the early years of my career.  What gifts!  Your organizations include San Gabriel Valley Psychological Association (SGVPA), Los Angeles County Psychological Association (LACPA), (Santa Monica-West LA AAMFT-CA  & LA-CAMFT), and closer to home in the South Bay, Long Beach-SouthBay CAMFT and SouthBay Society of Clinical Social Work.  Thank you for welcoming Julie on my behalf and for the steady support you and your organizations have given her, me, and Moonstone Center!

for a Weekend Away of Dynamic Learning

in a Setting of Self Care!



The body's process in psychotherapy is an essential aspect of mental health treatment. The field of mental health is increasingly aware that treatments involving talk therapy and/or medication alone are not enough. Recent research and adapted clinical approaches are attending to individuals as mental, physical, spiritual and relational beings. Integrated treatment methods are emerging as these findings are applied. One powerful model incorporates the development of new alliances between traditional mental health treatment and complementary and alternative therapies such as yoga therapy and acupuncture. This workshop addresses a multi-faceted and holistic view of persons by exploring and celebrating the power of collaborative treatment teaming between psychotherapy, family systems therapy, psychiatry, yoga therapy, and acupuncture.  Led by Moonstone Center's Treatment Team of professionals, Moonstone Center adult and adolescent cases will be presented. Moonstone Center approaches continuing education through the integration of mind-body processes, incorporating yoga as experiential education with the didactic lectures of the day. In keeping with Moonstone Center's mission to provide dynamic education in a setting of self-care, we invite you to join us for this powerful day of continuing education. Please consider furthering your own self care and integration of the concepts learned throughout the day by staying at The Beach House (add Beach House interactive link) and taking in beautiful Hermosa Beach.
