How long have you been in private practice?
I’m actually not in private practice, but I’ve been a licensed social worker and family therapist for about one year! I work for a local nonprofit in Little Rock, AR, called Our House Shelter. We are a community organization that serves individuals and families who either unhoused or experiencing family instability.
How long have you been in your current office?
I have been here 2.5 years (was formally a family stability case manager and got to keep my space).
What has changed the most about your space?
I have been trying to minimize the junk (even if it’s cute) and really focus on what NEEDS to be in there. At first, I just wanted everything to be aesthetically pleasing, now I’m trying to channel good vibes and make an environment that’s not over stimulating, as well as being conducive for sensory integration needs for children, adolescents, & families.
What is you favorite thing about your office?
The lighting. I’ve worked hard to not have to use overhead lighting with lamps, but I also I have a large window that brings in lots of natural light.
What makes your office unique?
I’ve worked hard to create a space, that’s safe, cozy, & functional for humans of all ages. I want it to feel like a therapeutic break. I get lots of comments on the vibes, even from fellow coworkers when we have meetings in my office.
