I love giving presentations in the community. It helps me to connect with the community, and meet the needs of families on a larger, more systemic scale. In addition, it is a great way to collaborate with other amazing clinicians and organizations. Being that I am also involved in academia as a professor, I also often present at many academic conferences, to spread knowledge, learn more about the expansive field of marriage and family therapy, and to make sure that I am following the best practices to suit my clients' needs.
