Cape Charles Wave
October 1, 2012
Any uptick in Cape Charles business activity is welcome news.
So the Wave is pleased to report that Barbara Brown has opened a professional counseling office at 221 Mason Avenue.
Brown is a long-time Cape Charles resident, but until recently she conducted all her practice on Rogers Drive in Nassawadox. That worked well for clients on the northern end of the Eastern Shore, and she is maintaining her office there. But in response to “many requests from people down at this end for something closer,” Cape Charles now has a resident psychotherapist.
“Some day I would love to work here full time,” Brown says. “My office is located almost directly across from the medical center. If you look up to the second floor you will see a balcony with a green and white striped awning. It is two doors to the right of Dr. Titcomb’s eye office and is my office balcony. So I have a view of the harbor and town. [Read more…]
