Hi, I'm Ben. I'm a licensed mental health counselor in Slingerlands. What continues to amaze me as a therapist is how resilient people are. I've worked with people going through traumatic experiences and I've seen them go on to live meaningful, fulfilling lives. I strongly believe people can overcome the immense obstacles life throws their way. I have a particular interest in working with younger men (20's and 30's), as they face unique challenges and historically have been less likely to seek help.

Please feel free to check out my Introduction Video at https://youtu.be/ytYmG-2v4c4 to learn more about me as practitioner and person. Clients often come to therapy, initially, with symptoms of anxiety, significant stress, exhaustion, depression, anger, etc. I am here to listen while the Client talks through current and past issues that have led to the onset of these symptoms. The goal is 1) for me to offer education (about symptoms, causes, patterns, coping, wellness, communication, etc.), and 2) for the client to discover the answers they have inside of themselves and develop confidence in ones' self.

Hello everyone. I have been providing health services for the mind for over 20 years. I have worked with children, adolescents, teens, adults, elderly, veterans and forensic males. With such a vast background of populations served, I have helped many types of people deal with and work through many types of issues. I like to say that I will 'meet you were you are at' and we will work as a team to achieve your goals. Therapy only works if you are engaged and willing to participate, but I understand that your recovery has to come from you, not me. I use Motivational Interviewing frequently and believe in CBT.

Are you feeling anxious and depressed? Having trouble sleeping and having a hard time turning off your anxious thoughts? Are you feeling stuck and trying to figure out what comes next in your life? These feelings can be overwhelming and keep you in limbo. Although your family and friends may be a great support for you, it is sometimes easier to share your thoughts and feelings with someone you don't know intimately. If you are emotionally and physically tired and ready to take the next steps to wellness, let me help.

For that, I commend you! Will it be hard at times? Yes. Will it get better in time? Yes! With your willingness and desire to be a part of this journey, you can accomplish your goal, and I will gladly support you in that.

What type of Albany mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Albany?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
