My name is Dr. Benson Munyan. I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of Arizona. While a Generalist by training, I have a significant slant towards depression, anxiety, and stress- and trauma-related problems. I also have a significant background in military psychology and have also experience working with law enforcement and first-responders. I primarily provide Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), an umbrella term for psychotherapies that examine the relationships between our thinking, our emotions, and our behaviors. I am trained in several first-tier, evidence-based psychotherapies and I have extensive training in several other treatment modalities which provide me with a variety of options when assisting clients.
I completed my Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Utah State University and my Masters and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Central Florida. In addition to my work as a clinician, I am a published researcher and research consultant.
In my free time, I enjoy watching Sci-Fi films, listening to music, and discovering new foods.
Whatever challenge life has thrown at you, I look forward to helping discover the way forward, together.

I've always disliked therapy, but I choose to go to it because of the obvious benefits associated with it. Dr. Munyan is far and away the best therapist I've ever had and is extremely easy to speak with. I've chosen to continue doing betterhelp over regular therapy because I think it's unlikely I find a therapist as good as he is, elsewhere.
Dr. Munyan is extremely insightful and really helps me breakdown my emotions and thoughts when I feel out of control or overwhelmed. He allows me to express myself when I feel like I am overreacting and then helps me see the bigger picture. I would highly recommend Dr. Munyan and BetterHelp in a heartbeat.
Dr. Munyan actually cares and is very knowledgeable. He checks up on you multiple times even if you don’t respond. That means so much for someone like me. He doesn’t push too much but just enough to have a proactive and positive conversation that always ends in me making a plan and finding newfound motivation to keep at it.
Dr Munyan is terrific. He is very insightful and empathetic, and has a wide range of knowledge and expertise. Would highly recommend!
Dr Munyan has been a great counselor. He responds in a timely manner and checks in with me frequently. He has provided me with effective tools for dealing with my issues. I feel that he understands my problems and listens well.
I have benefitted from his services with receiving coping skills, a focus on my broad goals, and having someone to talk to. I plan to continue my counseling with him as long as I can.
I asked for help with my anxiety and self esteem issues, I got help for my anxiety and self esteem issues! I also got more than what I asked for too, and that was being able to wrangle in my wild thoughts and look at situations from a different perspective. In the end, it all comes down to how you perceive your reality and Dr. Munyan helped me refocus and reshape my problems in a more manageable way.
Dr. Munyan was a great counselor. He was very communicative and organized which made me feel that he was very dedicated in helping his patients!
Dr. Munyan was so helpful! I am dealing with a lot of anxiety and he provided so many amazing ways for me to handle it better. Definitely would recommend him.
