    By: Jane Kennedy, Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, MN, MPH

    Integrative and Functional Medicine has for decades used the principle of finding the underlying cause of imbalance in the whole person system and treating with modalities that cause the least side effects to return the patient to optimal balance. By using this approach, we can successfully evaluate changes in psychological health through the life cycle and determine if underlying hormonal imbalances of various types or dysfunctional states of metabolism, can be the the cause.

    These include sex hormones, thyroid and adrenal hormones, insulin and glucose control, and neurotransmitters along with other hormones, for women and men at at any age. By promoting optimal life style choices, supplementation and bio-identical hormone replenishment when appropriate, we can offer approaches which have low risks of side effects.

    The journey with patients to regain lost balance can be one filled with deep satisfaction as they reclaim their lives with a new sense of optimal health and well-being physiologically and psychologically.

    Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:

    1. Identify points of physiologic hormonal changes in the life cycle when psychological changes are likely to occur for women and men.

    2. List 3 major hormonal systems causing psychological symptoms and 2 of the most common with each system.

    3. List 3 physiologic features patients demonstrate of hormonal or metabolic imbalance.

    About our speaker

    Jane Kennedy, CFNP, MN, MPH has concentrated her Santa Rosa clinical practice over the past 18 years on helping women and men regain their health and vitality after experiencing hormonal imbalance and decline. Her extensive training and experience with experts in the field of Integrative and Functional Medicine have made her into a leading hormonal health practitioner. Trained as a Nurse Practitioner at UCLA, Jane has been in clinical practice for over 40 years in Family Practice, Women's Health, and Dermatology. With an additional Master's Degree in Public Health, she has always focused on disease prevention and embraces a mind-body-spirit model of health.

    By: Christina Ingenito, LCSW and Jim Matto-Shepard, PhD.

    Psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy consistently shows remarkable and dramatic results from the serious psychological distresses of treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, and end-of-life existential angst. Clients and clinical trial participants describe these experiences as one of the most spiritual of their lives. Increased compassion and empathy have also been consistently reported. Many voices of vision recognize these treatments as the most significant advancements in psychiatry and psychology in decades.

    Our speakers will provide an embodied experience of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy by sharing Christina’s personal experience as a participant in an MDMA research study, thus grounding the presentation in the palpable reality of the potent, healing effects of this treatment. Discussion will include currently available psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy treatments; highlight the importance of “set and setting;” and share what’s coming soon through the FDA MDMA Expanded Access program. They will also talk about their work as founders of the first psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy clinic in Sonoma County - the Northern California Center for Integrative Psychotherapy in Petaluma.

    Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:

    1. Have a basic understanding of the protocol and effectiveness of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP), and understand the differences between KAP, ketamine infusions, and the new esketamine medication by Johnson & Johnson.

    2. Understand the protocol of FDA-approved clinical trials utilizing MDMA-assisted psychotherapy, and have a clear understanding of the consistent and dramatic results of these trials. Understand what will be available through the FDA MDMA Expanded Access program coming in late 2019.

    3. Understand the importance of “set and setting” in the psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy model and the non-directive clinical approach to the work.

    About our speakers

She has been an LCSW since 1986, has done hospice work for over 25 years; and she facilitates a restorative justice group for men serving life in prison at San Quentin.

    Jim Matto-Shepard, PhD is a licensed psychologist with specializations in somatic, couples and group psychotherapy. He was licensed in 1997. He is also a certified conscious dance (Soul Motion) teacher. Jim is passionate about authenticity in relationship and has been immersed in ritual and meditation since 1978.

    Course Description         

    In this entertaining presentation, we'll cover what you need to know about working with a client’s insurance, including what out-of-network providers should know, since what you don't know can hurt you (did you know that just giving clients a statement to submit to their plan opens the door for review of your treatment and records?).


    We will discuss three ways to keep new clients even when you aren’t on their insurance plan. You will learn about recent changes in the insurance industry that can affect all of our practices. The pros and cons of joining plans will be identified, with tips presented on how to get in the door at “full” plans, and you'll learn about new opportunities for LMFTs (ex. Medi-Cal, Kaiser).


    Do you know the 13 essential questions you should ask when checking coverage? Or how to identify the biggest (and most costly) mistake therapists make when dealing with insurance? In addition to these important answers, you'll be taught how to speak the language of “medical necessity” in order to advocate on your client's behalf to get more treatment approved. If time allows, we will discuss billing for telehealth and extended sessions.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Identify 2 therapist insurance participation options and identify key differences between network providers and out-of-network providers.
    2. Identify 2 myths that are commonly held by providers about working with insurance.
    3. Identify 13 Essential Questions to ask when checking insurance coverage, in order to avoid later treatment disruption or claim denials.
    4. Have a general understanding of “medical necessity", and what plans look for when they review treatment, in order to help advocate for clients.

    By: Kristine Jensen, LCSW

    The current epidemic of unrecognized and untreated toxic shame threatens the success of our work as therapists. Shame is not just an element of abuse. In this presentation, we will learn about the complex nature of this syndrome—its origins, and the various forms it takes that look nothing like how we generally think of shame. We will see that shame is often at the core of atypical depression, anxiety, OCD, pathological narcissism, domestic violence, attachment disorders and various Axis II diagnoses. We will see how shame can begin as early as the mother-child relationship, how shame disguises itself in four major behavioral patterns, and what specific relational elements of the treatment relationship are essential in the healing balm. Clinicians will leave this workshop with practical tools and insights that we can use Monday morning.
    Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:

    1. List four primary behavioral patterns that people use to defend against shame: the Compass of Shame.

    2. Explain how shame becomes toxic and remains toxic.

    3. Name the two keys to healing in the therapeutic relationship.

    About our speaker

    Kristine Jensen, LCSW has practiced individual and couples therapy for over four decades. For fifteen years she specialized in DID treatment, consultation and workshops. In 2010, Kristine closed her practice and worked with active military in Germany and Japan for two years.

    By: Orit Weksler, LMFT

    What makes our early experiences meaningful and useful? What helps us know ourselves and make sense of the world? Using viral videos from the early days of YouTube, we will attempt to answer these questions using Winnicott’s ideas about “The Full Experience”; “Personal Gestures”; “A Holding Environment” and Transitional Space”. We will think about attachment, metallization, play and discuss ideas about rhythm, knowledge and the importance of pausing in an interactive and fun training.

    Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:

    1. Know about Winnicott's concepts of "The full experience", "Transitional space", "Holding environment".

    2. Understand the relationship between "rhythm", "knowledge" and "pause" in creating a transitional space that allows for growth and creativity.

    3. Experience a "holding environment" in the presentation itself and reflect on how to use this experience in their clinical work.

    About our speaker

    Born and raised in Jerusalem, Orit Weksler, LMFT studied Expressive Arts Therapy following her work in theater, spoken word and alternative education. Upon emigrating to the US in 2002 she comleted in MFT license requirements in CA and opened her private practice in Berkeley in 2008 where she sees adults, teens and children.

    Orit's interest in early development has brought her to the study of psychoanalytic theory, attachment, EMDR, IFS and more. She is passionate about attempting to translate different theoretical models into practice in a way that would make sense to a diverse audience. She has developed this presentation as a way to connect with teachers, parents and clinicians from different backgrounds. Her specialties include working with children and adults on the autism spectrum, giftedness, adoption, creativity and mental illness.
