Why Blue Boat?

(Andrew B. Sears, Practice Owner)

If you’re here you may be wondering…where did the name Blue Boat Counseling come from? I realize it’s unconventional as practice names go, but its story starts when I was a kid. I loved blue, and it seemed to run deeper than just a favorite color. It went for all the typical things, but the practice name comes from our summer trips to amusement parks. I would get in line for the rides and always wait for the blue boat (or car or plane).

Yes, this means I let other riders go ahead of me while I waited for blue, which always got a few looks. When I look back on that scene today, I realize I was just being the real me. And that blue boat is a symbol of being your true self, which is exactly what I try to help my clients find. So I decided there was no better symbol for my counseling practice than this one of authenticity and freedom to be yourself.

I want my blue boat to be a reminder

that you deserve to just…
