Sarah J Benson, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in White Oak
I've counseled adults, adolescents and children for the past 30 years. You'll find that my warmth, encouragement, humor, knowledge, and skills will help you feel less overwhelmed and more hopeful. I've effectively assisted individuals and families who've struggled with separation/divorce, physical health issues, school and work difficulties, grief, relationship issues, anxiety and depression, low self-esteem and behavioral problems.
I draw upon a variety of effective types of therapy. For example, I help identify thinking/behavioral patterns that can contribute to problems with mood and relationships (cognitive-behavioral therapy). For children, I help them express feelings through playing games and drawing. For families, I teach communication skills and problem-solving to decrease conflicts.
