Dr. Benson Munyan

(Ph.D.)

About Me

Greetings!

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.

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.

I haven't been getting help from Dr. Munyan for very long, but it was quickly apparent that he's very knowledgeable on a variety of mental health topics. He was able to quickly set me up with a plan to help with my personal issues and will frequently check in on me if he hasn't heard anything from me for a couple days.
