What’s In a Name?
By Nicole Beurkens
As we wrestled with this, there were two words that continued to grab us – connections and horizons. We were driving in the car one day, and the name “Connections Center” came to mind. I quickly wrote it down on a scrap of paper so I wouldn’t forget it. Later that night after the kids were in bed, I sat down and Googled “Connections Center” only to find that it already existed. For those of you who don’t know this, the Connections Center in Houston is the clinic where Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) ® was founded. To this day I know it was no coincidence that I thought of that name. I had not heard of RDI ® before, but had been seeking a treatment philosophy and program that addressed what I found lacking in everything else. Suddenly, the search for a name for my new clinic had led me to the program that would later certify me and become the philosophical foundation of our clinic.
I then decided that we would use the word “horizons” in our name. Why Horizons?
