    We are thrilled to have Libby Parker, R.D. speaking at our 10/23 Pre-licensed meeting at 6pm at Community Counseling Center, SLO! There is limited space--please RSVP to the email listed at the bottom of this notice. If you have interest in treating body image issues or eating disorders, this would be a great meeting to come to. 

    Registered Dietitian Libby Parker will be speaking at our next meeting with questions you have on the topics of

    • body image and eating disorders,
    • the difference between a Registered Dietitian and “nutritionist,”
    • RD’s scope of practice, and
    • how to work with a RD on the team/when to refer clients. 

    Libby loves working closely with therapists to create a cohesive team for her clients. She has a private practice in SLO helping people recover from eating disorders. She specializes in young adults, and released her self-help book for eating disorder recovery this summer, Permission To Eat, for this population.

    A Morning of Self Care with Timothy Om Costa  

    A practical and experiential approach to Yoga including postures, breathing exercises, meditation and relaxation, complimented with live sound and essential oils.   The objective of the workshop is to clearly outline and demonstrate how the practice of Yoga helps the body, mind and Spirit.


    1. Participants will identify 2 physical benefits of Yoga.
    2. Participants will identify 2 mental benefits of Yoga.
    3. Participants will identify 2 spiritual benefits of Yoga

    I believe when you enter the Yoga studio, it becomes a sanctuary. When you come into your practice, you realize the body is the truest temple. The alter of your heart calls for your presence, your breath. I started to practice Yoga in the late 90’s, mainly to help my body recover from injuries of the lower spine and knees. What I started to get out of a regular practice was far beyond just feeling better physically.  I noticed right away I was happier, more patient and felt I had more to give. After completing my 200 hr RYT at Shivananda Vedanta Center, I was encouraged to teach Yoga to some of my drum students, family and friends.  I have been playing music professionally and teaching percussion for over 20 years.  My studies in music have taken me on several trips to West Africa, as well as Cuba to study at the National School of Folkloric Music in Havana. During my time studying music and dance, the focus has always been on the healing qualities of movement and sound.  I incorporate Tibetan singing bowls and breathing exercises into every class.  I am full of gratitude to be a part of this studio, this community.   I hope to help encourage and inspire all to know Yoga as a way to realize the true qualities of Self.  See you on the mat.  Aloha, Namaste, Om.

    We host our Annual Networking Meeting each January.  It may be one of the most important meetings that trainees, interns and licensed folk can attend.  Why?  This is the one meeting per year that we spend time sharing of ourselves as individuals and agencies to educate, inform and promote.  We learn what’s available to us, and invariably increase our resources. 

    We will provide beverages and light snacks.

    Be sure to bring plenty of your business cards and marketing materials!  Be prepared to introduce yourself in the following way (thank you, Dan Conroy!)

    My name is __________

    I specialize in (think in terms of service AND benefits) __________

    What I love is ___________

    Once again you can look for some dynamic changes for our members.  We are looking forward to a great New Year, starting with our annual gathering of colleagues. 

    If you need that extra time to catch up with friends you may arrive at 8:30!
