Statement by Toni Maita, LMFT:
My name is Toni Maita, and I’ve been a LMFT since 1995. I am in private practice in Placerville. I have a passion for my work, and my areas of focus range from psychoanalytic psychotherapy to psychedelic integration and other types of energy healing. If elected to the office of president of SVCAMFT I will bring my years of experience in our field and encourage new ideas with a focus on diversity and inclusivity and equity in mental health care for the community that we serve.  I hope that you will consider voting for me.

Statement by Jalena Rusaw, LMFT: 
Hello! I am Jalena Rusaw, LMFT. As the proud founder of Horizon Counseling Center, I bring a passion for making mental health accessible without compromising fair wages for our employees. Our nonprofit fosters a vibrant learning environment, ensuring growth for both trainees and associates. Beyond the counseling world, you'll find me in Clarksburg—fishing, chasing chickens, and nurturing our garden. I am a proud mother and grandmother; between my husband and I, we have four adult children, and eight grandchildren spanning ages from 6 months to 15 years. 


Statement by William Schult, LMFT:
I have valuable skills to contribute to the  SVC Board, a passion to contribute to the organization and the desire to make a difference for colleagues in our area. I founded the nonprofit counseling organization Couples Resource Collective in 2016 and serve as the Clinical Supervisor, Executive Director and President of the board for the organization. I was the treasurer for AAMFT Sacramento in 2015 and the treasurer for SVC-CAMFT in 2016 and 2017. I would like to re-start my involvement with the SVC Board and look forward to your consideration.

Statement by Christopher Weston, LMFT:
I am excited to serve as treasurer for CAMFT’s greater Sacramento affiliate! Ironically, I graduated with an undergraduate degree in finance from U.C.S.B. and began my career in the heart of Silicon Valley as a financial analyst. After relocating to the great Sacramento County, I worked as a civil servant and wrote and secured over 3 million in federal grants for El Dorado County and had the unique opportunity to build and serve as the first project director for El Dorado County’s multi-million-dollar, low-income County health center. As a result of some life-changing events and reflection, I realized I had a different calling, leveraging an opportunity to pursue my true passion as a licensed therapist. I founded and am currently the project director of the El Dorado Community Overdose and Prevention Coalition (COPE), and work for myself, specializing in obsessive compulsive disorder and anxiety. With your vote, I can now use my unique skill set to continue to move our chapter forward.
