Our consulting team includes clinical psychologists* specializing in helping people thrive in high-demand workplaces exposed to extreme stress, including direct and indirect exposure to potentially traumatic events.
Our Origin Story
WorkHaven began as a group of psychologists* interested in positively impacting nonprofit professionals in high-stress work environments. Our first clients were non-profit legal service organizations seeking guidance to help their staff members thrive in their mission to address and dismantle systems of oppression. This initial work forged a real partnership with our clients, and the organizations’ leaders continued to turn to WorkHaven to help employees thrive and grow in demanding nonprofit environments. Other social justice, health care nonprofit and mission-driven, for-profit organizations learned about WorkHaven’s resilience, DEI and leadership development work, leading us across six states and multiple countries to work with an increasingly diverse group of organizations and leaders.
Where We Are Today
Our consulting services include organizational wellness and resilience; diversity, equity and inclusion programs; and executive leadership development. Our clients include for-profit businesses as well as social justice, healthcare, media and first responder organizations. We offer educational and work groups on-site to help employees succeed, grow and cope with the difficult work they do. We partner with leaders to help them monitor and get ahead of external (e.g. industry) and internal (e.g. staffing) changes, make plans for growth, problem-solve around interpersonal challenges with staff, and develop new leaders. Every organization has unique challenges, so we tailor our work to meet those very specific needs. Our consultants have expertise in a wide array of areas, including team development, diversity and inclusion, trauma and secondary trauma, high-achieving talent and leadership development, interpersonal attachment, and mental health and substance issue education.
