Monarch Therapy Services, Inc. is a behavioral health agency that was founded in May, 2010 by Kate Haberman, LISW, MFT, and RPT-S and Rusty Eddy, LBSW.
Both Kate and Rusty have extensive work experience in the social service field. The pair felt joining forces would allow them an opportunity to create a professional environment where their specific strengths, values and beliefs could be utilized and grow. Monarch is based out of Parkersburg, Iowa. In 2010 Rusty and Kate felt a desire to respond and provide to the rural community that Rusty calls home. Kate had an established private practice in Waterloo and in Waverly. So, the three offices were opened. Currently, we employ 6 clinicians from various backgrounds. We have 4 office locations.
In 2018, Kate became sole owner of Monarch and ended the in home services program. Monarch is committed to continuing the clinical psychotherapy services it provides.
