Our Story

How We Got Started

I launched Blue House Wellness in the Fall of 2018. I had been looking for office space for my private practice and had fallen in love with a beautiful blue house in Avondale Estates. I just wanted one of the offices but was convinced by the owner that opening a coworking space for therapists would be a fantastic idea. It turns out it was. I think so many therapists feel like running a business is too difficult or don't know where to start. I have loved having the space and platform to help so many therapists launch their practices and become business owners. I have also loved being a part of a community of amazing therapists who inspire and motivate me every day. Private practice can be so lonely but with this community, I get to say hi and check-in between sessions with members in the coworking space.

We are now a community of 20+ mental health professionals. Although we are no longer in the blue house (we have moved to an amazing office suite connected to Arepa Mia in Downtown Avondale Estates), our community spirit has thrived. On Fridays, you can find us checking in and motivating one another during our weekly video calls.
