The BeSide is managed by a psychologist, Dr. Stephanie Jacobs, who has owned a private practice for over 6 years. Therapy can be too expensive for many people, and we want everyone to have access to the insight and guidance that can help you get through. And, music and nature will often be incorporated into offerings!

The BeSide is a play on words….

Be… as in let’s all learn how to just be… even for moments at a time, so that relaxation and existing become part of our narrative.

B-Side… as in the flip side of an album. Sometimes the greatest songs show up when we flip the vinyl and allow the unexpected.
