Photo of my office
I want you to feel comfortable in my office to take a break from your day-to-day life and explore your thoughts and feelings. I bet that you have been in rooms where you felt uncomfortable and ones in which you felt relaxed. If a space is not comfortable to you for whatever reason (temperature, colors, furniture, smells, lighting), then it is much more difficult to feel at ease to discuss personal things. My goal in decorating my office was to create a space that was pleasant, comfortable, and peaceful. I hope providing a picture of it helps you have a sense of the atmosphere here.
