About Me

Hello,

My name is Genger Benson Perez, and I enjoy working with teenagers. In addition to raising 5 of my own teenagers, I completed my practicum and internship in my master's program working with at risk teenagers at a residential shelter. Though teenagers often are like an onion that takes time to peel, when we get to the center of the onion, teenagers are unique, real and amazing young leaders of the next generation. This time in our lives with love, loss, social media perfectionism, social injustice and the quarantine have added many challenges that our teens have been facing and will continue to face.

I hope you will reach out, I am hear to listen and to help with no judgement and much empathy.

Absolutely the best therapy and therapist I've ever had definitely 10/10 on every scale and having her specifically makes not only myself feel better and confident in a successful future but also for my fiancé too! Definitely helped save our relationship to blossom and progress instead of digressing.

It took me a couple of tries to find a counsellor I connected well with. Genger was deeply understanding, empathetic and knowledgeable and I am so grateful to her for her help to get me started on my journey to feeling more myself again.

I am so grateful to have been connected with Genger. From the first session, she has worked hard to listen, understand, and guide me in the right direction. She truly has a gift for this kind of work and her skill-set is very wide-ranging. I am making great strides in processing past trauma and improving my well-being. Thank you, Genger!
