Ben has a passion for the recovery process. He will seek through compassion and respect to guide those suffering from addiction to a life of recovery. He continues to work to raise awareness of the disease of addiction by working in grass-roots efforts to combat addictive behavior, and by having the integrity to bring group and individual counseling to those who need interventions. Ben’s philosophy is that when the patient enters treatment is the beginning, and he will support the family throughout the treatment process if they desire.
Ben is married with five boys. Ben knows the work it takes to maintain a healthy marriage, parent boys who have their own ideas about life, and blend a family. Ben’s wife, Jennifer, often works with him and does a lot of the marketing required by some agencies who contract with Compassionate Interventions, as well as marketing for the practice itself. Because Ben will not travel with an adult female alone, Jennifer accompanies him on female interventions.
Together, they have had a wonderful and successful practice intervening on clients with addiction. A veteran of the Navy during the Gulf War, Ben is passionate about Veteran’s issues. He can work with the addiction and PTSD that Vets often struggle with. Trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Ben can often work with Veterans to help them manage their symptoms and live a more productive and fulfilling life.
