My name is Ben Keplar. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Indiana. I have over 15 years working with Veterans and military personnel and have spent the last 8 years learning and practicing Social Work primarily in the mental health and addictions fields. I have experience working with clients facing homelessness, medical social work needs, aging, cognition and memory concerns, inpatient addictions, and supporting caregivers.
I believe in making the client the center of my approach. Everything starts with respect, compassion, and listening. You set the pace and we work as a team to move forward. I use different tools and approaches designed to meet you where you are at, and to get you where you are going. I do not believe in shaming people, negative labels, or stigmatizing past choices or situations. I am here to help, not to judge.
It takes a lot of strength and bravery to reach out for help and I am excited to partner with you toward a more fulfilling, satisfying, and healthy life. Let’s get started working together.
