Ben is a CCAPP certified counselor with experience in multiple roles in the treatment profession starting in 2010. Obtaining sobriety after multiple treatment attempts had failed him, Ben found his passion for helping others with creatively treating addiction and co-occurring disorders by identifying, challenging and acting on where other treatment centers fall short. He acquired the bulk of his training under a LCSW and MFT where he helped to impact the lives of multiple teens and their families through their therapeutic mentoring program.
Ben now helps others push through their self doubt, anxiety, depression and addiction through case management and the surf & adventure therapy programs at Sea Change. Ben assists clients using active listening, empathy, empowerment and modeling healthy confrontation to build the mental fortitude needed for sustaining long-term recovery.
