  • Environment and Mentality

    Oct 31, 2012
    I’ve added a second office location and I am looking forward to working with clients in this inviting space. It has windows that stretch from the floor to the ceiling in the lobby and offices, bringing in a lot of light, openness, and views of the city. The furniture and décor are contemporary, yet comfortable, in soothing colors that evoke a sense of relaxation and calm. The space is clean and uncluttered, balancing a professional atmosphere with comfort.

This diversity of experience enriches the classroom and the identity of the counselor.
