2016 has arrived, and it's hard to believe that we're now in the second half of the second decade of the 21st century. As a late baby boomer born in the 60s, I always wondered what life in the 21st century might look like, and life in 2016 is truly beyond my imagination. As we get older, life takes on surprising twists and turns as we all continue to ride the waves of life, and I'm so grateful for the relationships surrounding me.
Recently, I welcomed a talented new associate named Melissa Lee Garner, M.A. who has arrived in the practice to join my other recent addition, Andrew Oldershaw, M.A. Although we all miss Jenny Williams, MSW who moved back to New York at the end of October, Melissa and Andrew bring brand-new energy, passion and enthusiasm to the practice. As always, I feel so fortunate to have my associates around to keep me on my toes.
Introducing Melissa Garner Lee, M.A.
I'm very pleased to formally introduce my new associate, Melissa Garner Lee, M.A., the most recent addition to the practice. In addition to her graduate work at Pepperdine, Melissa brings a tremendous amount of life experience to her clients including seventeen years living abroad in England. Her passion for Mindfulness is infused into all of Melissa's work, and she is now fully-immersed in the EMDR training process.
You might say I'm terrified to speak publicly, but this would be an understatement. I've learned from past experience not to label the situation terrifying—so let's just say I find it challenging and uncomfortable. But, alas, it's a new year and I'm turning over the proverbial new leaf.

Andrew Oldershaw's Prism Project
In addition to a growing practice, Andrew Oldershaw, M.A. devotes additional time and energy to an incredibly valuable community resource. As the founder and principal of The Prism Institute, Andrew formed a partnership with colleague Linda Reeves, M.A. The Prism Institute's primary purpose is to provide trainings related to the LGBT experience in a variety of environments tailored to unique audiences.
