Opening Doors

'Opening doors' has been Rago & Associates motto for many years. It refers to the idea that when obstacles are facing us, we need to take creative and powerful views in order to overcome them. We have been fortunate to support hundreds of people to overcome their issues over the years and we are very honored to have our clients and their families in our lives. Heather Aviles, our art therapist, took the idea a step further, when she began to collect actual doors from homes in her garage. She brought them in and began a special project to help people visualize and symbolize the concerns keeping them stuck. Not only is the "doors project" effective, it is also a lot of fun!
