LCSW

About Me

Hello everyone. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Indiana. For 28 years, I have worked in the field, gathering hands-on experience by working with various demographics in different capacities. The majority of my experience has focused on providing service to youth, parents, and family dynamics. My 18 years as an LCSW have allowed me to deal with concerns, including depression, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, anger problems, family conflicts, and parenting problems. Additionally, I enjoy working with individuals to improve self-worth, confidence, and athletic performance.
I promote a caring, positive, respectful, safe, and non-judgmental atmosphere to assist my clients. I utilize a strength-based and client-centered approach where the client is the expert. My therapeutic styles include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focus, and Motivational Interviewing.
I truly understand the difficulty of opening up and sharing life struggles with others. I'm always honored when someone shows the courage to take the first steps towards changing and taking control of their lives. I am here, ready to your support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Ben is absolutely amazing. He is my sons therapist and is doing a great job so far. I sat in on their first meeting and he did a really good job of finding common ground to connect with my son. His years of experience really show when he is talk to my kid! My son really likes him as well! We look forward to continuing with Ben!

Ben is excellent at giving others a safe place to express their concerns and issues. I like his warm and understanding manner. I would certainly recommend him to anyone seeking to better understand issues and struggles in their life.

Ben has been amazing for our couples therapy. My husband really needed a male to help him put things in perspective. Ben was a good listener and gave helpful tips and “homework”. We both really like him and the results of our meetings!
