About Me

Ben founded Larchmere Center for Well-being (LCW) after moving back home to Cleveland in 2017. After almost a decade in Santa Barbara, CA, Ben decided to take his non-profit and clinical experience back to the community that raised him. Ben is a relational EMDR therapist who believes therapy is all about connection, fit, and meeting the client where they are. Ben thinks it is important to take your time and find the therapist that is right for you. Ben works with individuals on a broad spectrum of issues. His specialties include: Generalized and acute anxiety; Depression; Self-awareness; Trauma; and LGBTQ+ issues. Ben values relationships, delicious food, dogs, and creating safe communities for folks of all backgrounds and origins. After spending most of his career training educators and young people in Social & Emotional Learning, he finds joy in seeing spaces transform with the power of empathy and compassion.
