I'm so, so excited to share my news...I'll be opening my own clinic space this spring! It's in the beautiful historic Leddy Center building at 131 Main St. in Epping, NH. The gym is complete with a mirrored wall (so perfect for motor planning, body awareness exercises, drawing with window markers...endless fun!), velcro wall, cushy foam flooring, soft natural lighting, and oodles of space. Sensory swings will be coming, and I'm in the process of nailing down a contractor to come do the work!
One of the best parts about the new space is that I'll be under the same roof as my good friend and colleague, Susie Curtis, LCMHC, who has been running her own solo maternal and pediatric mental health practice called More Than Words Counseling Services for 5 years. We're affectionately referring to our space as Therapy Square, as our visions for the future involve having Mental Health, OT, PT, and ST services all under one roof. Our goal is to bring small business back to healthcare, with the added convenience of multiple practitioners sharing a space. Did you know we'll be the only OT and Mental Health Counselor who share a space on the Seacoast?? Pretty exciting, especially for kids learning to cope with anxiety, self-regulation, and general behavioral skills.
I'll keep seeing current and future clients in the community as well, but am transitioning to having the majority of my kiddos come to the clinic. Here are some pictures of the space emptied out...it will be way more fun once I fill it with my OT toys and swings!
