At The Center of Connected Living – Fl we do everything we can to make your visit comfortable and private.

These are available to ‘rent’ for free.
Emotional & Mental Preparation:
I encourage all my clients to take 10-15 minutes before the session to focus thoughts, calm the body from daily stresses, and honor our time together as an opportunity for self-care and healing. To help you achieve this experience, the ambiance of our office includes soft lighting and a water fountain of relaxing flowing water known for it’s healing qualities.
Please note that sessions are often scheduled back to back. For this reason, please make every effort to arrive at or before your appointment time. Unfortunately, if you do arrive late, I will be unable to extend our time. For example, if you schedule an appointment for 10am, I consider only until 10:55 am to be your time regardless of the time the session actually starts.
Many clients have shared that it helps to think about their therapy during the week and in-between sessions. Reflecting on the conversation, jotting notes, and considering conversation for the next session helps you to stay in close relationship with your therapeutic experience. In fact, clients who implement their knowledge gained from therapy into their daily life and relationships tend to experience even greater and quicker change.
If you’re a new client, please complete the client intake form and bring this to your first therapy session. This will save you 10 – 15 minutes for completing necessary paperwork during the first session. The more thorough, honest and detailed you are helps me understand your situation more quickly.
