Over the course of the past few weeks, myself and a few other coworkers have experienced the pleasure of ridiculous, unhealthy, sweet, gluttonous glory that is eating a pack of Oreo cookies. It began with Lana stashing an “emergency” pack of Oreo cookies in her desk that eventually became the community cookies. I decided to join in on the communal services and purchase mint Oreo cookies while Andrea purchased Trader Joe’s version of chocolate cream Oreo cookies. So many Oreos, but so much community.
If one of us was having a tough day, we ate an Oreo or two and processed what had happened with a client. If one of us was having an awesome day, we celebrated with more Oreos. We created a different type of community of processing our feelings of anxiety, stress, worry, fear, need, and joy.
Do I twist it or eat it whole?
At the George Center, we have a team approach. We can share ideas on how to better serve your loved ones. We can process our client’s needs and determine the best way to meet those needs. As a therapist, I know that I am not speaking for myself when I say, I’ve had days where I don’t know how to move forward. When I process my concerns with my team, I pull apart an Oreo, and discover a new way to make sure my clients reach their highest potential.
What’s your flavor?
What is your community like? What brings you together? How do you process your emotional, mental, social, and physical needs? Just like the numerous Oreo flavors, the George Center has several opportunities that create a sense of community.
