What is your Ideal Office? I have practiced in
more non-ideal offices than I care to remember--a state hospital
side-room, the community counseling center room I shared with everybody
else, my first office that I sublet from another therapist, my first
very own (very tiny) office, and many more.
My current office is the best so far. Have you ever had a floating office? The Marina environment is fun and exciting. It also has wireless DSL, phone, and printinf facilities.
As you design your Ideal Office, remember it must
meet your needs, the needs of your clients, and, if you work with
managed care companies, their needs (for example, a separate entrance
and exit). You may have to start with only one item from your Ideal
Office list. But keep the dream alive, and soon your Ideal Office
will grow into a reality.
