FAQ

Where is the office located?

Before I tell you the address, I want you to know that GPS DOES NOT WORK AT THE ADDRESS. So, if you want to get here, make sure to pay attention to these written directions.

We’re in the Edgewater Center at 1460 S. McCall Road, Suite 3H, Englewood, FL 34223. This is the three-story building on Gottfried Creek (the one that everyone thinks are condos).

The office is located right on McCall Road (aka SR 776). It is in the section of McCall between Pine Street and Beach Road.

If you’re heading toward Venice, it will be on the right and if you get to Beach Road (where McDonalds is located), you have gone too far.

If you’re heading toward Port Charlotte, it will be on your left. If you get to Pine Street (where Publix or CVS is located), you have gone too far.

There is a large sign titled Edgewater Center. Clearview Counseling and Coaching is on the sign on which multiple businesses listed below.

It might sound complicated, but everyone finds me. Just call if you get lost!
