Benjamin Newsome Ed.S.

It is the case that life is rarely as we expect it to be and may seem more difficult and confusing than we can bear alone. You may expend a tremendous amount of energy holding it together or trying to maintain the appearance of perfection leaving you feeling depleted and unfulfilled. My hope is to meet you where you are and walk alongside you to help sort out your emotions, enhance your relationships, understand yourself, achieve goals, and facilitate healing.

While serving any adults and adolescents, my practice is focused on men who struggle with anger and who seek to better understand their emotions, adults who have had traumatic experiences, couples who seek to enrich their relationships through connection and healthy communication, and high school/college students navigating life transitions.
My approach is warm and highly empathic while still providing perspective and insight into your personal experiences. I seek to utilize a variety of evidence-based practices and individualized treatment based on your need and personality.
