Benjamin Thew, M.A., LMHC
Clients come to me looking for a therapist who explores the roots rather than just covering up the problem. Using EMDR and blending in other therapies, you can expect to deep dive into the muck of your life and actually feel ready to do so. There are many options for therapy in our world, and many of them are cookie cutter, by the book strategies. Life is messy and doesn’t like to fit within a book. When you are seeking therapy to address trauma, postpartum depression/anxiety, or the impact of infertility on your life, the last thing you want is to feel like your therapist is following a manual. This leads many to feel invalidated and lack trust for therapy. I know that your circumstances are unique. This is a process where you should feel empowered to voice your needs, and therapy should be individually tailored to those needs.

I have worked in rural community mental health, tribal mental health, and private practice settings for the last ten years serving children, adults, and families.
