As some of you know, I recently moved my office just across the street. I moved for several reasons but the biggest was that maintenance on my old building was becoming an issue for my clients and for me and I wanted to give the people who come to see me a better experience than that.
My new office has the same conveniences of my old location (easy access to 71, 270 and 315 — close to the grocery, library and shopping) but there’s greater privacy, better snow removal and better natural light. (Ok, that last one is something I probably notice more than my clients but boy am I enjoying getting to see outside more!)
I also have more space in the playroom, which makes it easier to work with the wriggly kids who might need to roll, tumble or stretch out while they play. I’ve only been there a week but already I can see how this is going to benefit therapy sessions with my youngest clients and that’s been enough to make the move worth it.
I have to tell you that when I began planning my practice in 2012 I was eyeing the office space I’m in now but it wasn’t available when it finally came time to sign a lease. My dad used to work on the 2nd and then 1st floor when my family moved here in 1978 and my siblings and I loved going in with him on weekends to play on his secretary’s electric typewriter and draw with her fine-tipped Flair pens; I have good memories of that building. So I was very excited to find just the right space available when it came time to leave my old office.
