2018 LACPA Awardees



Evelyn Pechter, Psy.D.

2018 Award for Distinguished Service to LACPA by a LACPA Member


For six years, Dr. Pechter worked tirelessly on the Executive Committee as both President and Treasurer. She implemented her vision to enhance LACPA’s financial stability and its organizational efficiency. Dr. Pechter’s service to our organization includes efforts with many committees and the LACPA Foundation.  She also mentored countless numbers of LACPA members.









Michael Yapko, Ph.D.

2018 Award for Distinguished Service to the Profession of Psychology


Dr. Yapko, a San Diego based clinical psychologist and marriage and family therapist, is internationally recognized for his work in treating depression, as well as in brief therapy, clinical hypnosis, and outcome-focused psychotherapy.  He has routinely taught to professional audiences in more than 30 countries across six continents and has received awards from both APA and the Milton H. Erickson Foundation.






These awards will be presented during the luncheon at the 2018 LACPA Convention, on Saturday, October 27th, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Culver City.  Please join us in honoring these two very deserving individuals!
