Mica Gonzalez, PhD. Managing in The Midst of COVID-19

Today we continue with our series on Managing during the current outbreak with my guest, Dr. Mica Gonzalez.

Mica is the Co-Founder and Clinical Director of Family First Psychotherapy in Oakland, California and he specializes in helping anxious, aggressive, and hyper kids and their stressed out parents. 

When I queried people about who they wanted to hear from for this series, Mica’s name came up. And when you listen to this interview, you’ll understand why. Mica has an amazing way of articulating concepts about early child development and therapy while at that same time, conveying a sense of groundedness and calm. Perfect for this series!

Note: Mica is hosting a free webinar April 8th at 10:30 am PST on Developing resilience in uncertain times.
