Featured Newsletters

This holiday week, I invite us all to send extra gratitude to the spaces that feel like home for us. 


This could be as small as a cozy corner in a rented room or your big dream home with a backyard, white picket fence, and swing set.


And, sometimes, where we feel at home isn't even a physical space. 


It's that friend who loves you for you even in your messy moments, the therapist who always reminds you that everything's all right, or the way the mail lady addresses you with, "Hey, Sugar," and a wide smile. 


As we run through our list of items to be grateful for this week, I want to remind you to thank the spaces, people, and energies that have held you and loved you back to life.


Today, I am grateful for many things, but a big one is the team at Counseling Space. I have been blessed with beautiful souls who show up as their loving and authentic selves and joyfully collaborate to ensure that we can continue serving our communities so that you and your loved ones remain happy and whole. 


And this year, the team grew to include new players who brought one of our biggest projects to life: our riverside retreat bungalow in Florida!


We are so grateful that our self-care space, designed JUST FOR YOU, is now complete!

Now, continuing from where we left off in our last newsletter... 


With closing done, it was time to design the most important space in the home, the Zen Space.


As I desired to thoughtfully create a self-care space for women who seek to deeply restore and renew, I knew the wellness stay needed to have a designated room for meditation, prayer, yoga, and other mindfulness practices. 


If you recall from the previous newsletter, my agent, Ms. Stephanie Wyatt, was always full of resources and referred me to the designer, Sueann Badillo (pictured below), founder of the award-winning Moxie Design Group.



I explained my vision to her, and she was so patient with me being so particular about my vision and the furniture I wanted. However, I quickly learned that I needed to be flexible, especially with the crazy delays in shipping and low inventory this year. Once again, we did not let the challenges stop our creation.

And, as promised, here's a sneak peek of the INTERIOR of the wellness stay just for you! 


I trust you love it as much as we do! 

While it was Sueann's first experience designing a Zen Space, we both approached it with the same level of enthusiasm. Once the conceptual design was done and the furniture finally delivered, it was time to set everything up! 
As you know, furniture these days comes in multiple pieces that seem impossible to assemble, but I do my best to practice what I preach, and that is to delegate. This journey led me to a resilient and young survivor who is an expert at assembly furniture – Jared Simmons (pictured below). 


About 90% of the furniture in our wellness stay zen space was assembled by Jared! Every time I had furniture delivered, I would call Jared, and he took care of it. Jared is the Founder and CEO of Full Throttle Mode Productions, podcast host, and suicide survivor. 


After several trips to the space, he learned more and more about our work at Counseling Space and the WHY behind our Wellness Stay, and that is when he shared with me that he did the podcast to share his experience with mental health and suicide. When he asked me to be a guest on his show, I said, “I’m there!"


POSITIVE SIGN #4: What are the chances that our space, designed specifically to support the mental health of our communities, would have the majority of the furniture assembled by a survivor in recovery?


We just couldn't have asked for a better team to set the space up.


This space is for YOU. 


This space is for ALL.


We are so grateful to walk with you all on your journey and to have you walk with us. 


Enjoy the holiday! We trust that wherever you are and whoever you're with, your heart is at HOME
