On Sunday, August 24, 2014, GoodTherapy.org was a sponsor for the Love Our Local Fest to support the community around its regional office in Olympia, Washington. It was a beautiful day to set up a booth on the east side of Olympia and talk to locals about mental health and accessible therapy!
The annual event featured musicians from the Olympia area, vendors, and food that supported community growth and handcrafted products. Visitors enjoyed art and music for all ages, as well as fun projects and the unveiling of a mural that displays local talent.
This is the second year GoodTherapy.org has participated in and helped sponsor Love Our Local Fest, and the response has been great. Member support team members Allie Wilkerson and Evan Grotsky tended the GoodTherapy.org booth, meeting members of the public and spreading the word about our therapist directory and mission to reduce stigma about mental health issues.
“Working at Love Our Local this past weekend made me feel even more connected to the wonderful community of Olympia,” Wilkerson said. “Throughout the day I got to meet new faces as well as bump into old friends. It was lovely meeting one of our local members, Gabrielle Clayton, and getting to chat for a few minutes. It was a day full of sun, tasty food, and great live music.”
Thank you to all those who greeted us at the festival and the organizers of Love Our Local! We hope to continue our support and involvement with this great event for many years to come. Getting acquainted with members of our community is a priority for us, and we especially love the chance to share our mission and vision on a local level.
