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 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.

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.

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.
