Central Coast CAMFT Board of Directors


KIM RICHARDS PRESIDENT 
richardskimlmft@gmail.com

I have a private practice in SLO and am passionate about working with teens, adults, and families. In my free time, I love spending time with family and friends taking a beautiful hike in Montana de Oro or sharing a delicious meal together.  Other favorite activities include yoga, meditation, and swinging kettlebells.  I enjoy connecting with my professional community and board, helping put on quality local trainings, and learning/growing alongside my awesome colleagues.  The board has a very special place in my heart and I especially love our pool parties and retreats!

DESIREE GARCIA VICE PRESIDENT

I am new to the board and excited to serve our community as I believe there is a strength in connection. I am passionate about personal empowerment and growth and feel honored to work with clients in my private practice in San Luis Obispo. I immensely enjoy time with family and friends, camping, nature, and rest days. I am looking forward to being a part of CCC-CAMFT and building professional connections within our community.

LYNLEE OLIVERA CE COORDINATOR

was born and raised in Santa Barbara. Later I moved to the beautiful Central Coast to raise my family and have had a great many happy experiences and adventures with them as well as later since they’ve grown up.

At present, I am glad to be growing my own private practice in San Luis Obispo where I specialize in the treatment of anxiety disorders for all ages. Reading and training to improve my niche related to my specialty and treatments are very important to me, as well as learning the ins and outs of running a business.

On my own time, the most recent joy in my life is my almost three-year old granddaughter. I live for outdoor activities, especially beach volleyball doubles at Pismo Beach. I also like biking, yoga, paddle boarding, rock climbing, walking and hiking and sailing with my husband.  Music, gardening, cooking healthy meals, games and family gatherings are other passions I enjoy.  

LEAH DeROSE TREASURER
leahderose@derosetherapygroup.com

This is my first year serving on the CCC-CAMFT board and I am excited to join and support the therapists in our community. I am passionate about creating networking events and other engagements to foster connections and support for all levels of therapists.
 
I have experience working for county behavioral health departments for almost a decade and have had either my private practice or group practice for the last eight. Individually I specialize in working with college students and professionals who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and perfectionism. As a group we work with all populations and have an integrative approach with both therapy and other wellness services.
 
My family and I have lived in SLO for ten years and love calling this beautiful place our home. In my down time I enjoy interior design, hiking with my family and dogs and reading

I am a central coast native. I am grateful for the opportunity to work in private practice in Santa Maria, a place I have always called home (aside from leaving for college). I enjoy the nature surrounding this area and frequently relish in it through beach or hiking activities. I am passionate about spending time with my family, self-care, and eating yummy meals with those I love. I have two bunnies and a kitty plus my partner and together, we have a pretty blessed life.

JYLL MAXWELL MEMBER AT LARGE

Co-Creating and sharing with family, friends and community is something that sparks my passion.  Whether it is a home cooked epicurean delight, working in a friends garden or facilitating a mindfulness training.  Professionally, for the past 5 years I have had the privilege of working within a diverse client population at Cuesta College and Community Counseling Center.  Born and raised in Southern California, I love everything this beautiful state has to offer.

JAMIE DUNN MEMBER AT LARGE

Born and raised on the central coast, I cherish all that our beautiful home has to offer. I love to "fill my well" by staying active and getting outdoors. I'm most fulfilled spending time with my husband, daughter, and dogs. As a therapist, I work in private practice online and in-person in Atascadero with a diverse client population of adults and teens.


ALEXANDRA SEASTRUNK MEMBER AT LARGE
alexseastrunk@gmail.com

I have a private practice in the Village of Arroyo Grande where I help adults of all ages navigate the complexities of anxiety, depression, and grief/loss. I am grateful for my rich connections with my clients, and feel honored to witness their stories unfold. Outside of work, I am passionate about reading, film, spending time in nature, and nurturing my relationships--which are very precious to me. I love all animals, from birds to dogs, whales to otters, and I feel most myself in their presence. I am excited to serve on the board and look forward to connecting more with the community!
