Keeping you current on all things LBPT

C hange is one of those things that happens whether we want it or not. Most of the time, we’re in control of changes in our lives because they’re the choices we make and the plans we lay out for ourselves. Sometimes, though, it’s not in our control. Things happen and we have to deal with them — hopefully one step at a time. This year, we didn’t experience too much change at the clinic. People had babies and families grew, we welcomed a new therapist, and we introduced a few new programs. But, by and large, there weren’t any big changes. I didn’t want to make many changes to how the clinic operated and served our patients. I didn’t want to rock the boat. Really, I wanted to see what worked and what didn’t. As the year comes to an end, I can use this information going forward. I will say we do have a few changes coming to the clinic in the new year. Again, they won’t be anything major, but they are still changes. Right at the start of the year, Dani Fiorito, our front desk manager, will be leaving us to stay at home with her little boy who is due in January. We wish Dani the best as she welcomes her little one into the world. But despite one person leaving our clinic, I see 2020 as a year of growth. We’ve been a part of this community for just over 10 years now. That’s a big deal. It’s been an extraordinary ride and I’m excited to make some big decisions going into the new year. Now, I can’t say what all these decisions will be just yet, mostly because I haven’t made too many firm commitments as of this writing, but you can be sure any changes that do come will be slow and steady. Much like this year, I want to get a good sense of what works and what doesn’t. It’ll be like putting together the pieces of a big puzzle. It’ll take some work, but the end result will be amazing! I can tell you we will be expanding some of our existing programs and improving them based on the feedback we received this year. I’m excited to share more details on these changes in the coming months!

“It’s always important to take a step back and really spend time with the ones you love, and it’s important to take stock of what matters.”

For now, though, I’m looking forward to spending the holidays with my family. It’s always important to take a step back and really spend time with the ones you love, and it’s important to take stock of what matters. My husband’s family isn’t Jewish, so I get to decorate the Christmas tree with them. It’s something I really enjoy. It’s the festivity of it all — not to mention all the ornaments and lights. I cherish this time with them, just as I cherish the time I have with my own mother. As this year comes to an end, I encourage you to take stock of what matters in your own life. Reflect on the changes you’ve experienced throughout the year, both good and bad. And, most importantly, let your loved ones know just how much you appreciate them.

From all of us at Lake Burien Physical Therapy, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a fantastic New Year!
