SHEPHERDSTOWN — The Shepherdstown Health and Wellness Cooperative celebrated its grand opening on Saturday, with a ribbon cutting ceremony at its new location at 4781 Kearneysville Pike.

The cooperative is under the umbrella of Potomac Crossroads Counseling, LLC, owned and operated by Kathy Morotti, LPC. PCC provides mental health therapy for adults, adolescents and children. Morotti hopes to bring additional health and wellness professionals to the new facility through leases of office space.

“We want to provide an interactive approach to health and wellness, and we are looking for professionals such as acupuncturists, nutritionists, massage therapists and other licensed therapists to help reach the needs of the community,” Morotti said in a press release issued prior to the open house and ribbon cutting ceremony.

The cooperative, which has already leased some of the office space available, still has approximately nine offices still available. Several of the offices provide private entrance access. The building, as a whole, is ADA accessible.

Those who lease space will have a shared waiting area, along with access to a billing specialist and an administrative assistant on the main floor of the facility.

“There is a universal office available on the main level to accommodate any therapists’ clients who may need that access,” Morotti said as she gave a tour of the office building at the open house.

The official opening of the new location coincided with the open house and ribbon cutting; however, Morotti explained that some online therapy sessions that have occurred due to the COVID-19 Pandemic will likely continue into June, with other clients beginning to come on-site starting in May.

Lori Robertson, town recorder for the Corporation of Shepherdstown, attended the ribbon cutting on behalf of the town, in the stead of Mayor Jim Auxer, who was unavailable. Robertson took the opportunity to welcome the new businesses, which she expressed, would be a wonderful addition to Shepherdstown.

Rentals will cost between $600 and $750, depending upon the size and amenities available. Those interested in renting space should contact Morotti at 304-876-2770 or send a letter of interest to her attention at PCC, P.O. Box 192, Shepherdstown, WV 25443.
