LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A shared workspace solely for mental health professionals opened its doors Thursday. The facility is the first of its kind in Louisville.
B.mindful Louisville provides safe, clean, practical, and modern furnished offices for mental health professionals to rent. Founder Shannon Gonter, a professional counselor, created b.mindful to help support like-minded professionals in the mental health field with consulting and networking while building their practice.
Working in private practice made Gonter realize how valuable a workspace that offered all those things in one place would be.
The new space offers affordable daily rental plans and helps tenants avoid a longer lease, which they may not need.
There’s a private waiting area, a break room, a separate exit for clients, parking and lots of amenities.
The facility takes care of almost everything, from furniture and internet access to office supplies and refreshments for clients--and tissues, if needed.
“On top of offering each clinician with a fully furnished office to practice in, we also take care of the amenities," Gonter said. “So wi-fi, printing services...we also provide complimentary drinks for our tenants and their clients as well as creating that like-minded environment for them.”
"We’ll stock the office supplies for you. So no more running into your session and realizing you don’t have notebooks or tissues for your clients. We’ll kind of tackle all of that for you,” Gonter said.
B.mindful Louisville will host two open houses: Saturday January 5 and Tuesday January 8.
The facility is located in the Bashford Manor neighborhood at 1949 Goldsmith Lane, Suite 103, Louisville, KY 40218.
