Everyone has a story. Ben’s story began in the rolling hills of Brenham, Texas, where a young man discovered his natural gift for listening and helping others navigate their present circumstances. With designs to become a professional counselor specializing in relationships, he sojourned to Baylor University for a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and then to Mary Hardin-Baylor for a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. In the following 10+ years as a licensed therapist, he has encountered an array of clients—each one having presented different problems within the context of their uniquely experienced story. All of these encounters have reinforced two powerful truths: (1) Colliding stories introduce the possibility for significant, positive change, and (2) now is the best time to craft a new chapter in your personal story.

My passion is helping couples and individuals surmount the obstacles that prevent them from experiencing the intimate relationship they want, wherever they currently exist in that journey—dating, pre-marital, married, divorcing, post-divorced, or finding love again. No issue is too big or too small, and as a LGBTQ+ friendly therapist, all relationships are welcomed. Perhaps your interactions with family members are failing your expectations, which means you’ll be looking at family therapy as an option. If you struggle in your relationship with a daughter, son, father, mother, or any person you live with, I would like to speak with all parties involved and help set a course for improved outcomes. Maybe the relationship you struggle with the most is the one you have with yourself. Whether you are unsure of how to cope with your present feelings or unclear about your path going forward, I will listen in order to understand your perspective and then co-create solutions with you that move you closer to your goal. I’m ready to begin when you are.”

Ben has been married for nearly 10 years and enjoys spending time with his wife—camping and cooking in the great outdoors! His latest hobby is gardening, an endeavor which he finds both creative and self-nurturing.
