How Megan Wuest started their print or packaging design journey
Megan A. Wuest, MS, LPA
I have been providing therapy to families adults and children for 9 years. I have started a small private practice three years ago, but soon I will be moving to a nicer, bigger location. I want to start actively marketing my work. I use a variety of interventions: Play therapy, pet therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) , acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and EMDR. It is important that I come across as professional but accessible. I work to make people feel safe and connected to me and then the two of us can face challenges together. I love helping people find what is important to them and help them move toward that. Materials should not be about my ego. Themes to convey are: growth, healing, connection, sanctuary and acceptance. I also promote flexibility and a sense of humor. Decor in office will be modern and clean-lined in a small,intimate converted older home to office.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I work with children ages 4 to 18 and their families. I use play therapy and EMDR. Traumas can be anything from parents divorcing,car accidents to violence. I also work with individuals that have depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder. I also want to work with professionals that want to work on self defeating behaviors and increase their performance.
I want business cards with an appointment card on the back. I also want letterhead, thank you notes and envelopes, return address stickers. I don't want photographs or cartoons. I don't want to alienate clients appearing too "woo" or weird or alternative. I like the idea of having something that is "green apple" colored green as a subtle image of growth but open to anything that isn't boring. I most want to convey that I am approachable and professional. You can trust me and I am a safe person that will accept you.
Info: Megan A. Wuest, MS, LPA. Licensed Psychologist Associate. 1598 Pearl Street, Eugene, OR 97401 tele: 541.343-0077 fax: 541-653-8301. i want the back of the card to be an appointment card with room for me to put in the Date, Day and time of their next appointment. Also at the bottom a request for 24 notice if needing to change to cancel to avoid a possible no show fee. All wording and or format of course can be changed as you think! I am unclear if the populations and or interventions should be on the card. I don't think that clients really care and know about interventions, they just want relief.
