This is the e-blast I sent out Aug. 14. It's kind of long, but worth it. If you didn't get it, please take a minute to read it and please also take just a quick minute to sign up for the E-mail Blast List. Form is at the end of this page, on the right. Thanks

Your donations help me continue to offer my workshops and on-line courses at very reasonable fees and quite honestly, help me during a pretty rough time in my life.  Well, if saying that didn't make me feel vulnerable, I don't know what could. (I think Brene Brown would be proud of me.)
So, no pressure at all. If helping  feels like something you'd like to do, that would be greatly appreciated. If not, no problem at all. If I don't ask, I'm the first one saying 'no'. (I made that up. Pretty good, huh?) 

The way it's set up, you can put in any amount you want. Again, no pressure. I'll love you no matter what you do about a donation. You know that. I'm so very grateful to and for all of you.

Hi, Everyone,


Every day I am more and more thankful for all of you and for more than just letting me e-blast you.


O.K., I’ve gone over and over all the possibilities/options and have realized that the most reasonable and sensible thing for me to do is to stay here in Atlanta. That said, I signed a lease for office space and will be starting a private practice. The lease begins Sept. 1 and I will be open for business on Mon. Sept. 10. I changed this since I realized I might need a little more time to get things in place. The leasing company is being great about things like letting me get the mailbox key early so I can do the change of address form asap. Also, they’re letting me move things into the office early instead of making me wait til the lease starts. This allows me time to get things set up without being rushed and to find a way to make Pal a Service Dog so he can come to the office with me. (Yeah, wish me luck with that!)


Here’s the new address you will use beginning immediately:
Dr. Karen McCleskey
2295 Parklake Dr., # 555
Atlanta, GA 30345


This location is only 1 mile from a Chick Fil A which is why I chose it. (just kidding….sort of.) It’s in the Northlake area and I really like the location and I really like the office.


I’ll send more information on this part later, but there’s a conference room I can use for free 1 time a month so I’m thinking I’ll occasionally plan a workshop on that free date. I’d still like to do the Wild Wonder Women’s group. Remember that? I was going to do it last year, but I ended up moving back to Flagstaff. Well, I’m here now and I want to get that up and going and the conference room will be perfect for it.


I’ll be putting “Private Practice” information on my website soon. Also, I will have to have my new informed consent done by Sept. 4. This means that the pre-order price of $10 for the whole Special Forms Package is only available until that date. Beginning Sept. 10, (I pushed this date back) the full price of $15 will begin. If you’re interested in what material is in the SFP, it’s described on my website under the My Books And A Whole Lot More tab. If you have any questions, please let me know.


If you feel comfortable referring people to me, I’d appreciate it. I see adults and couples. I have expertise working with individuals in the following areas:

Anxiety
Depression
Relationship issues
Sexual issues
Gay/Lesbian issues
Spirituality issues
Life balance issues
Transgender issues
Sexuality issues

I have extensive training and experience in working with same sex couples and opposite sex couples. I work with couples in the following areas:

Sexual issues
Increasing passion and intimacy
Learning how to effectively communicate
Learning how to appropriately deal with conflict, disagreements, anger
Parenting issues
Divorce mediation
And your good old basic Couples Counseling which can include things from above along with a great many other components

And last: I’d really appreciate it if you would send me your contact information and the issues you work with so I can begin building a referral base. For example, if someone wants to make an appointment, but then decides the location doesn’t work for them or they’d rather see a guy, it would be very helpful for me to have a list of people I could refer them to. I really need therapists to refer people to regarding substance abuse, trauma, eating disorders, children, and families. I’d really like to know if you have any specific training like EMDR, DBT, Equine Therapy, etc.  PLEASE SEND ME YOUR CARDS AND ANY BROCHURES YOU HAVE. 


A great weight is off my back since I know now what I’m doing and where I’ll be doing it. I think it’ll be good for me to feel settled. I haven’t felt that in a very long time. This is a new chapter in my life and while I’m scared about beginning it, I feel much more excitement than fear.


Much love and gratitude,
Karen
