Welcome to the New Explore What’s Next Website!



Setting up a new website is a lot of hurry up and wait. Patience is something I can do because I am a very good therapist, and many people need a patient guide to help them through. When it comes to my life, however, I’ve been told I can be annoyingly impatient. I tend to get whiney which is really hard for me to admit. The child in me wants it, when I want it, (which today is a new website) now!

Yeah, yeah, I know, it’s a control thing. As I type this Steve is importing the old blog over into this pretty new WordPress site. There are always glitches. Whenever Steve says, “Oops!” I jump a foot.  He’s the tech genius, I’m not. I have to trust him that it will all turn out OK. Of course, I should have known that ‘everything turning out OK’ also meant it would take twice as long as I thought it would to begin with.

Arg!

Have you ever done a remodeling project on your home? Same thing. All the responsibility and close to zero knowledge or skill. And whatever you are told about the time it takes, add it again times two. You hope your contractor will be kind and not rip you off. I am so fortunate to be in good hands. Steve is patient enough for both of us.

It reminds me of the trust my patients learn to have in me. That trust is precious. It is the foundation for most relationships. As a therapist, as in my other roles in life, I do not take it for granted or expect it without earning the trust first.

So back to the new website… What do you think? Like it? Yes? If you hate it please be nice but tell me what you would prefer. I really do want to know. If you like it please tell me why. I live for details! Comment, people! Let’s talk!

    How exciting that your practice is growing… and growing enough to warrant a new blog! :) Congratulations! Now I need to add a new “favorite” to my list.

    Dr Aletta,

    I miss the right side of the web site. By that I mean the links to your favorite sites and your twitter updates. Other than that the part I have seen looks good.

    • SD, You are right. I still need to fill in the side bar with things like the twitter feed and other info. It will be going up soon. Please keep looking around and give me feedback. I appreciate it!

  • Congratulations! I love the site and find it easy to navigate, interesting to search and full of wonderful tidbits. Can’t get much better than that…..

    As you know, I am Executive Producer, ghost writer and blogger for the Viktor Frank Movie by Alexander Vesely, my partner.

    But I also own two other companies, all in the communications business so when you are read to produce webinars, webcast and broadcasting, I’m your girl!

    You are an excellent writer and the world needs to hear you more!

      Your kind words really touched me. The encouragement you provide is priceless. Thank you.
