Our Banker’s Hill office
There are two steps to get into the building. There is a solid handrail on the left side of the building as you enter. There is no wheelchair accessible entrance to the building. Once into the building, you turn left into the suite where there are several chairs to sit on. Filtered hot and cold water is available as is tea. There is also a non gender / all gender bathroom in the suite.
There is daylight from the two big windows in the office. There is also three lamps in the room. We welcome clients to let us know if at any time the light seems too bright or too direct so that we can change it to meet clients’ needs.
There is no dedicated client parking for this building. There is ample street parking available, usually within a block or two, allowing clients to park with ease. We are also 2 blocks from Balboa Park which also has abundant free parking (on most days).
There is some noise from the airplanes as we are right under the flightpath. Depending on the time of day, one might hear several planes go overhead in an hour. I’ve found that the noise is dampened when one is inside with the three doors in between them and the plane. I’ve noticed that sometimes, hearing a plane or seeing its shadow on the wall will become a reminder to take a deep breath in and out, to revel in being in the city so close to the airport and the Pacific ocean next to it, and to appreciate the wonder of science in creating such an amazing instrument, allowing us humans to flight.
We do use white noise to block some ambient noise from the waiting room. There is also the noise from the central air conditioning and heating unit. We can lower the white noise machine if it is bothersome but not completely turn it off for confidentiality reasons. Please let me know if the white noise machine is bothering you so we can look at ways to adjust it. We have limited control over the ambient temperature as it needs to be kept at an appropriate temperature for all people in the office suite.
Our Poway office
Our Poway office is elevator-accessable. There is an ensuite all gender - no gender bathroom with a grab bar. It depends on the size of the wheelchair whether it could fit and turn into the bathroom with ease. We are happy to measure the doorways if that is a concern or need of yours.
We will only be in this Poway suite until the end of August 2019. At that time, we will be moving to another space in the area. We look forward to confirming our new location as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience.
We have a private lot available to utilize. If there is not a space in the lot directly next to us, other lots closer to the street are available. Parking is not covered and is available first come first serve.
