Meet Blue House Wellness

Blue House Wellness Avondale Estates

Each month we feature one of the Atlanta Coworking Alliance spaces. A thanks to Anne Rice, Founder of Blue House Wellness in Avondale Estates, for sharing her thoughts and insights.

What makes your space so special or unique?

Blue House Wellness is a coworking space for mental health professionals. We offer a cozy setting where members can use the community space to do paperwork. We have fully furnished offices by the hour to hold therapy sessions or other meetings.

Our space is catered to therapy so we provide coffee and tea for therapists and guests and sound machines for privacy. There are larger rooms for group and play therapy.

We are located in the heart of downtown Avondale Estates next to many restaurants and shops with free parking.

What Changed During 2020

At the beginning of the pandemic, our original location was sold and we had to move. Fortunately, we were able find a location near by to a building that provided more private offices.

How You and Members Handled the Pandemic

Although most of my members stopped seeing clients in person, as mental health professionals, we were considered essential workers and our space was able to stay open. Most members maintained their membership and used offices for tele-health sessions so they could get out of the house.

My own therapy caseload picked up exponentially with people needing support. Blue House Wellness remained somewhat active during the pandemic. We continued to meet every week (virtually) to support and check in on one another.

What’s Happening As We Emerge From The Pandemic 

I have found it incredibly important to have the Atlanta Coworking Alliance community. I don’t think I would have made it through this as well without this amazing community to provide moral and practical support.

Recently, the Blue House Wellness therapist community has become more engaged virtually with the help of Mighty Networks. We have our own online community where we are able to make referrals, share resources, and support one another.
