About Me

I am Stephanie Borer, LCSW (she/her), the founder and sole therapist at Turning Tides Psychotherapy, I am a licensed clinical social worker and have had the privilege of being in the field for 17 years now. My passion is in providing a safe and collaborative space for healing. I am originally from Connecticut and received both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work from New York University. I relocated to Atlanta in 2010 and it has now become my home. I love raising a family here and the access to green spaces all around us. Turning Tides Psychotherapy officially opened in 2021 but has been in creation for years. I named the practice to honor both my personal connection to the healing powers of water, as well as, the psychological symbolism of tidal forces. My childhood was spent near Long Island Sound in Connecticut and the ocean was always a place of peace and renewal for me. Water, in psychotherapy, is also a common symbol for the unconscious, where parts of ourselves lay undiscovered. My mission for Turning Tides Psychotherapy is to facilitate opportunities to live an authentic life, fully present in the moment. In the setting of a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship, we set out to explore the impact of the unhealed wounds we carry with us. We work towards identifying who your core self is and what your value systems are. Through our relationship, filled with unconditional positive regard, we begin to shift falsely-held, inner, negative belief systems. I offer clients the opportunity to improve their relationship with their authentic selves and grow a genuine connection with others.
