Through this work, I am able to support parents in understanding the meaning of their child’s behaviors, assist youth in expressing themselves more effectively, and work hand-in-hand with families to promote mutual understanding, empathy, and acceptance.
In my work with children and teenagers, I see behavior as having meaning. Difficult behaviors such as defiance, tantrums, aggression, and isolation are often the youth’s maladaptive attempts at communicating emotions. I see my role as a facilitator of effective communication, collaborating with youth to understand their experiences and identify/verbalize their thoughts and feelings. With a decade of working with kids in a variety of settings, I work primarily from a relational and attachment-based foundation, which utilizes compassion, attunement, and co-regulation to promote wellbeing through enhanced relationships and self-worth.

I do a lot of family therapy.
My name is Ben and my job is to guide people on a journey of self-exploration that will lead to lasting and tangible positive change. It takes a lot of courage to do this, but it is often in the discomfort that we change. I encourage you to call me for a free consultation and ask any questions you have about myself or therapy. I will want to know about your goals and what you are hoping for in a therapeutic relationship. I believe in a holistic and non-linear view of life that endorses compassion, curiosity, and also getting out of our comfort zones. Once there is trust between us, I will lovingly push you.
