What is the exact name you would like in your logo?

Kathryn Sica Psychotherapy or KS or Kathryn Sica or Sica

What is your industry?

Health Care and Biotech

What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?

mindfulness, transformation & simplicity

What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)

the "Enso" character made with a brush stroke or modernized in some way---maybe made of dots or something, an abstract version of a lotus flower, modern zen feel, clean lines & minimalistic initials. Black in color or earth tones like deep sage or burnt orange or chocolate. Font modern &/or clean lines and simple.

Do you have any other info or links you want to share?

Attached are the 2 main ideas I came up with that I like-
First some variation of the enso design with my name/psychotherapy inside.
Second, a rendering of my initials.
I would like to see what your creative vision of these is and any variation you can think of.
I would also like to see any other ideas you might think are cool while keeping my sensibilities in mind.

Brief updates

I would like to not mix the concepts of the lotus flower and enso in the design.
I tend to like sans serif fonts that are simpler and more masculine.
It seems like my original idea of having my full name inside the enso may not work because the words would be too small. But am interested in seeing my initials inside or enso empty with name outside.
Would love to see an enso where you really see the brush strokes (like a traditional enso).

I just want to make sure everyone knows not to use the image of the enso I posted, but to instead create their own take on an enso.
