Announcement icon In light of the issues around the cornoavirus (COVID-19), I will be conducting all of my sessions either using telehealth or on the phone.
I use IMAGO relationship therapy to help me work with you in both individual sessions as well as couple/group/parenting sessions. We all want to create more connected, healthier and loving relationships in our lives and together we can figure out your relationship patterns, the causes of conflict in your relationships, and ways to heal those parts of the self that are more difficult to access. Therapy can be an empowering way to increase flexibility in one's life and to improve well being at home and at work. My goal is to help you increase your flexibility and learn more effective ways to interact with others.
I was originally trained as a child psychologist and have 25 years experience working with children, adolescents and adults. I also trained in IMAGO relationship therapy and have used IMAGO concepts to help individuals, couples and parents limit power struggles and lead more conscious, fulfilling lives.
As a gay identified therapist, I also work at empowering LGBTQQ clients throughout the various stages of their identity formation. My research focused on fathering and gay fathers in particular. As a result, I have also provided support groups for both heterosexual and gay fathers.

Adam L Benson's Groups

Gay Fathers Support Group

Gay fathers meet to discuss their experiences with other gay fathers. They explore the challenges and joys of being men who identify as both a father and gay. The group offers an opportunity for gay fathers to network and explore feelings around parenting in a safe, supportive environment.

More about this group

Father's Support Group

This group will provide fathers an opportunity to meet each other and discuss parenting issues particularly related to being a man that identifies as a father. It is open to both straight and gay men.

More about this group

Connected Parents Thriving Kids

This is an 8 week module for parents who are interested in improving their relationship with their children. While we wish all children came with their own handbook, the reality is that their handbook actually lives inside the parent. This group is aimed to help parents learn how to access the handbook and develop a more conscious relationship with parenting.
