Benjamin Smith , LCSW
Hello everyone. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Indiana. For 28 years, I have worked in the field, gathering hands-on experience by working with various demographics in different capacities. My 18 years as an LCSW have allowed me to deal with concerns, including depression, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, anger problems, relationship issues, family conflicts, and parenting problems. Additionally, I enjoy working with individuals to improve self-worth, confidence, athletic performance, coaching, and communication.
I promote a caring, positive, respectful, safe, and non-judgmental atmosphere to assist my clients. I utilize a strength-based and client-centered approach where the client is the expert. My therapeutic styles include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focus, and Motivational Interviewing.
I truly understand the difficulty of opening up and sharing life struggles with others. I'm always honored when someone shows the courage to take the first steps towards changing and taking control of their lives. I am here, ready to your support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
