Landscape Design

Astrid Gaiser Design

Exclusively working on residential home projects, we develop designs that reflect our clients’ personality and lifestyle as well as California's wonderful opportunities for extensive outdoor living. Located in the Monta Loma neighborhood of Mountain View, we specialize in ‘Living Large on Little Lots’ and will help you to get the most out of every square foot of your outdoor space.

Serene “Northern California Tropical” and drought-tolerant Mediterranean gardens are our favorites since they are so easy to maintain and provide our clients with years of enjoyment. However, there is always room for interpretations - from traditional to modern or strongly Asian-style influenced.

About landscape design: We provide the plans for the contractors so you get what you want. Using a landscape designer is the best way to ensure you will end up with the garden of your dreams at a price within your budget, because if you don’t know where you are going you’ll probably end up somewhere else ...

Interior Design

Eliana Frank - Envision Interiors

Creating Beautiful Environments For Any Budget (650) 793-0406 Web Site: [WWW] ; Email:[email protected]

Eliana Frank has been working in the Interior Design field since 1998. She and her husband bought their Mackay in 2002 and they love the Monta Loma neighborhood. Eliana believes that Interior Design is art as well as science — envisioning, planning, and incorporating all aspect of the home décor. It is the combination of industry knowledge as well as aesthetic vision. It is important to make the house become a reflection of one’s self – that is, “A Home”. A large part of Interior design is creating a cohesive environment that is pleasing to all the senses of the individuals living in the house. To do this, an interior designer is often required to be part therapist, part mediator and above all, a good listener. 
Eliana has worked with over 180 clients in the past, helping with paint colors, furniture purchase and placement, Accessories, and material selection and design. Eliana is a fine artist as well and paints commissioned paintings for her clients. Her paintings can be seen on her web site [WWW] .

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and a board certified art therapist. I provide individual and family therapy for children, adolescents, and their parents, as well as adults. I offer the additional service of home visits or in-home therapy. My office is welcoming, open, and grounding with the hope of offering a sense of peace, inspiration, and calm. As I am an art therapist and work extensively with children, I have space dedicated for art making, play, and sandtray work. I employ my experiences and training, my background, my understanding and curiosity to better help and support your growth, change, and resiliency with the current issues that bring you in to begin working with me. With over 13 years of experience in the field, I have encountered and worked with a wide variety of needs, concerns, and issues. I use a relationship and strength-based approach, which include active curiosity, empathy, and collaboration in the process of therapy. As much as therapy can often stigmatize and label, I work to identify and utilize the strengths, values, and skills already present, but maybe not yet apparent. Patience, acceptance, kindness, resilience, motivation, respect, and other such necessary values and skills, are integral to my approach and therapeutic work. These values and skills will be the very ingredients necessary to mobilize change and healing for you and your family.
