About

At the core of my treatment philosophy is the belief that families heal when movement occurs and people begin to step out of their comfort zones to unlock their potential and capacity for growth. Often there is underlying pain and/or trauma that needs to be addressed in order for the system to recover and break the cycle. Whether the results of the family dysfunction is abuse, addiction, estrangement, divorce, suicide, broken communication paths, or some other behavior, treatment can provide relief.
With more than 20 years of experience in the field, I can help you directly by offering individual or family therapy or help you navigate the complexities of seeking out the help you may need.  Seeking treatment services for mental health or addiction issues can seem overwhelming and daunting with all of the available options.
My goal is to meet you where you are struggling and help develop a path towards healing.  I offer therapeutic options that can bring families together, with a special focus on how individuals are impacted by dysfunction within the family.  Benson Family Services offers support in a loving and meaningful way to encourage motivation for treatment
