Ben's Collaborative & Empathetic
Ben's therapeutic approach is collaborative, empathetic, understanding, and solution-focused. He provides therapy for individuals and couples on both longer- and short-term timeframes, given the presenting problems that each client brings in.
He is trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gottman Couples Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and integrates helpful parts of other theories and approaches into his work. His training is based in a Systemic approach, which focuses on how our past experiences, personal relationships, patterns of behavior, and choices in life are connected with the issues we experience in our relationships and life in general.
In addition to being a therapist and working with clients, Ben dabbles in creating therapy-related content as he's enthusiastic about many mental health topics, and wants to be able to share his perspective with the goal of being helpful for those who see it.
His therapeutic philosophy is that everyone deserves support throughout life, whether that's for themselves individually, or as a couple. He believes that if we have more of that support and guidance, it opens up more doors that we can walk through to create the life, relationship, or sex life that we want and need.
