Ben Geilhufe, MA, LPCC, Counselor in Santa Cruz
Asking for support is not always easy. Whether you are looking for counseling, for resources, or hoping to book a training, I can support you. My clinical practice serves children, teens, and adults struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, gender identity development, neurodiversity (ASD and ADHD), grief and loss, transitions, and much more.
My work with clients centers on mindfulness-based interventions to facilitate an awareness of self and body; and cognitive behavioral therapy to highlight thought patterns that may be affecting my clients' well-being. I also offer strength-based and harm reduction interventions to facilitate healing and growth.
If you are wondering if I can help you in your process, give me a call. I offer a free 15 minute consultation during which you can decide if I am a good fit for you. Please visit my website for more information: www.bengeilhufe.com.
