Experience Aloha While You Learn!


Count down to experience paradise.



Dear fellow therapists and healers,  

I'm inviting you to a beautiful and memorable experience. Come with me to where I grew up—the beautiful island of Kauai, HI. My new brainchild, CAV Academy, is offering an event that is a combination of both a Hawaiian retreat and an opportunity to gain 16 hours of Continuing Education.  

Kauai is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. With its lush green landscapes, breathtaking waterfalls, cool ocean breeze, and spectacular sunsets, sunrises, and rainbows, Kauai is the perfect spot to find calm, peace, and connection with nature.  

If you are a mental health professional, you give so much of your time, energy and love to those you support. It is now time to extend that ALOHA to yourself. You will also have the opportunity to connect and network with other amazing therapists, and gain up to 16 continuing education. Come retreat with me, and many of our fellow clinicians, to Kauai and experience aloha while we learn.  

Aloha, Ernesto Segismundo Jr. LMFT Founder of FYLMIT.com Owner of CAV Academy Owner of CAV Family Therapy Inc.
