Benedict Choi, [LMFT]

Preferred Name: Ben

About Me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). I am experienced in trauma, relational conflicts as well as depression and anxiety. My approach is experiential, process oriented and focuses on bringing greater insight and self awareness for the client(s). I believe in the importance of early childhood experiences/attachments and memories that inform our present selves.

Education & Experience

I graduated from USC's MFT & School counseling programs in 2008, have worked for the past 12 years in the riverside community mental health agency system and completed my EMDR training at the Institute of Creative Mindfulness with Dr. Stephen Dansinger in 2019. I completed a year long training at the C.G Jung institute for sandplay therapy in 2015. I am also trained in TF-CBT and parts work. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults as well as couples who are just starting out and looking to build a solid foundation.
