                               Jodie Haber, LMSW, Licensed Social Worker. Over the past 17 years I have worked with children,                                              adolescents, adults, and families to help them achieve a better overall wellbeing. Currently, I specialize in                                        treating adolescents and adults with anxiety, depression, and life stressors/transitions. My approach to therapy                                is individualized and eclectic, as we all have different styles that work for us. We will work together using                                          cognitive behavior, solution-focused, and interpersonal psychology techniques to help you feel better. I believe                                  we all have strengths that can help us be our best selves, sometimes we just need guidance and support.


​                               Stephanie Beaton, LMSW, Licensed Social Worker. My primary goal as a therapist is to assist you in                                         achieving your goals and support you through any adversities that may come your way. Therapy is not a “one                                   size fits all” approach—each client is unique and has different techniques that work and do not work to achieve                                 their goals. I am passionate and dedicated to the mental health field, and I believe each client is more than                                     their symptoms and should be treated with dignity and respect. I believe the relationship between client and                                     therapist is crucial to effective treatment, and I want every client who works with me to feel safe, welcomed,                                   and supported. I primarily specialize in adults, but I have experience working with adolescents as well. My                                       practice draws from a variety of fields including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Self-Compassion,                                             Mindfulness, Positive Psychology, and Psychodynamic Therapy from a trauma-sensitive approach.
