July 2020
Stacey Brown & Associates, Counseling and Wellness
Hello Friends,

I know you are weary, hot and worried. Some of you may even be irritated and scared. I believe those feelings are normal given our current situation. In Florida, especially, the Pandemic continues on. Political leadership continues to be confusing at best. And, it's clear that social changes for human rights are long overdue.  

Astrologically, we have a similar planetary position to the skies around the time of the 1918 Pandemic and the American Revolution. Hmmmmm... suddenly, everything makes sense, doesn't it? As of the end of June, Mars has entered Aries and it will remain here through January, 2021. This means that there is great potential for lots of energy and alchemy.... that means transition and CHANGE. I believe that this means that we have the potential for determining this change in our personal lives as well as in the larger picture.

Of importance, please know that we are not going to open the office this summer. We know that so many of you have requested face-to-face meetings like it used to be. So many of you have talked about missing our beautiful office, drinking tea, and sinking into our couches for good, healing conversation and hanging out with Flaco.

Please understand, your safety and well-being is our top priority.

Although telecounseling is not the same as sitting together in a cozy room, it is a way for us to stay in touch with you, continue to help you, and for everyone to be safe. Almost all of our services are available by phone, video or online, including counseling, Ayurvedic consultation, meditation training and distance Reiki

We are considering not only the CDC and World Health Organization recommendations, but we are also considering our professional organizations’ recommendation and the trends across the country with therapists in private practice.

One of the greatest accomplishments for true wellness is the ability to be creative, flexible and resilient during times of change and difficulty. We remain dedicated to service to you. But, we have to provide our care from a distance.  

If you can, stay home. Be well. Stay safe. Take care of yourselves. We can help. And we are open to suggestions you may have. Follow us on Facebook, Linked In, Twitter and Instagram to stay in touch and be the first to learn about upcoming online events.

Have a safe and celebratory 4th of July. Please be mindful of procedures for safety.

Always in our hearts,
