Since 2009, GoodTherapy.org’s regional office has been located in beautiful Olympia, Washington, where we appreciate any opportunity to be involved in our dynamic community. This year, GoodTherapy.org supported the third annual Love Our Local Fest on Sunday, August 25, in Olympia. Love Our Local Fest is an arts fair which showcases regional food vendors, musicians of all kinds, visual artists, crafters, and more.
Olympia, the capital of Washington state, is located about 60 miles south of Seattle in the lower part of Puget Sound. In addition to a population of nearly 50,000, Olympia is home to breathtaking scenery and many traditions that recognize local talent and creativity. The Love Our Local Fest is just one of these events, celebrating the northeastern neighborhood of Olympia.
GoodTherapy.org was one of the sponsors for the day-long festival, which featured salsa lessons, healing arts, and activities for children. CEO and founder Noah Rubinstein attended the festival with his children (pictured at left), Kobe and Niko. Dan Fajans, member support manager, also represented GoodTherapy.org, staffing a table of information about therapy, “I Love Therapy” buttons, stickers, and complementary water for visitors.
“I had a lot of fun talking to folks from other local organizations and meeting Olympians interested in GoodTherapy.org,” Fajans said. “We live in such a vibrant and diverse community!” Rubinstein and Fajans spent the afternoon answering questions people had about GoodTherapy.org and finding a therapist. Hundreds from the community attended the Love Our Local Fest, and Fajans said many local mental health professionals were interested in the mission and vision of GoodTherapy.org.
It was a beautiful day in northeast Olympia, and GoodTherapy.org was thrilled to be part of an event that celebrated art, talent, and health.
