An Introduction to My Office

I have been in my new office for over 8 months but I have not introduced you to what it is like yet, so today I would like to show you my small but comfortable place.

My office is at 4540 Campus Dr. Suite #146, Newport Beach, CA 92660, right by the John Wayne Airport in Orange County. You can literally see many airplanes flying overhead.

Let’s open the door and take a peek inside.

When you step in, you can see my chair on the left and a couple of chairs on the right for you to choose from. If there are more than two of you coming, such as for a family or group session, I have some extra chairs available. The chairs are quite comfortable and the cushions can help you make yourself even more relaxed.

You will also notice the lighting in the room is subdued and adjustable because there are 5 lamps, in addition to the ceiling light, which I usually don’t use. Other than the regular lamps, there’s a duck-shaped lamp and another made from a block of Himalayan salt!

In the corner you will also see a small waterfall that makes a nice sound with gentle lighting behind the water. I run this at your option: some of my clients feel more comfortable to have it running during a session, while others don’t. However, if we practice relaxation during your session, the sound of the waterfall can help make you feel even more relaxed.

I also have an essential oil diffuser. Although it is a small room without any windows, there is no excuse for it not to be a fresh and relaxing space, and the scent helps to achieve this. Different essential oils are available for you to experience when visiting and you can let me know if you have a preference for one or another. I have enjoyed different refreshing experiences with the help of the waterfall and aromas. It should be noted that none of my clients appear to have had any allergic reactions to the essential oils, and this is supported by research I have done on the internet as well. But if you have allergies or find the essential oils don’t appeal to you, please don’t hesitate to let me know and I won’t use the diffuser during your sessions.

So far, visitors have reported that they like this space. I am also happy there and hope you feel the same! I want you to be able to feel relaxed and transformed during your visits.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this brief introduction to my office and how to get to it. I look forward to meeting you there.

Note: I have a second office in Laguna Hills where my Psychological Assistant, Leeanne, can meet with you for therapy sessions.

you can receive neurofeedback and biofeedback therapy
suitable for children, adolescents and adults.

In addition to psychotherapy, couple therapy, and family therapy, she is also experienced and excellent at providing neurofeedback and biofeedback therapy. This is very special and unique treatment for a number of conditions. I will write more about that in a future post!
