Achieving Joy Clinicians

Who We Are

Achieving Joy is a community of therapists who guide individuals, couples, and groups towards healing. We achieve this by helping people understand the importance of knowing themselves, accepting their authentic truth, and creating a life that’s reflective of their soul goals. In this process, we transmute generational trauma into joy and assist all in accomplishing the life they truly want!

Benjamin takes an eclectic, but person-centered, approach to helping clients uncover and unpack the real version of themselves. He employs both gentle and supportive techniques that help the client travel along their journey to (1) reveal the parts of themselves that have been hidden away (for whatever reason), (2) embrace the beauty of who they are today and offer opportunities for reframing as appropriate, and (3) empower and embolden them to choose how they want to show up in their lives going forward..
