Dr. Benjamin Lasky, Psychologist
I am a licensed psychologist in California and Nevada with over 20 years of experience. I specialize in LGBTQIA issues and am a proud member of the community. I also have worked over 10 years in a psychiatric hospital where I gained expertise with dual diagnosis patients (substance abuse issues + mental health disorder). I was also fortunate enough to work in the adolescent unit of the hospital as well. I earned my Ph.D. from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I am also an educator to graduate students and provide supervision as they pursue their licenses. This helps keep me motivated to stay current with emerging trends in therapy.
I mainly utilize cognitive-behavioral techniques as well as client-centered therapy. One of my favorite parts of conducting therapy is seeing diversity and being able to help those in all walks of life. I make no judgments and work hard to see things from the perspective of my clients. I see myself as a facilitator and I help my clients gain insight so they can tap into their strengths. Therapy is serious business, but I always like to use a bit of humor as appropriate. It is very important that everyone I work with feels valued and respected and I fully bring that to each and every session.
Thank you for your time and I hope to work with you.

I’ve been seeing Dr Lasky for the past several months and I’ve grown so much in regards to work and my personal life. He is there to listen to me without judgement and I knew when I talked to him I could share my thoughts in a safe space. I feel confident that I can navigate life without him, but know he’s around should I need him again.
