Benjamin Fox, LICSW
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
The goal of my work with individuals and couples is to help people build the kinds of lives and relationships they most long for, with each other and with themselves. Using the power of metaphor and the unconscious mind in a collaborative process, we imagine, find, and create solutions that work best for you.
Cultural inquiry has been a focus of my life, personally and professionally. Growing up and throughout my life, I’ve been fortunate to be a part of unique families that have given me formative experiences with race, religion, gender, and sexuality, and although these experiences have taught me a great deal, most importantly they remind me to carry myself with humility and curiosity. I speak Spanish fluently and Swahili reasonably well (though I provide treatment only in English.)
My undergraduate degrees were in Africana Studies and English, and I received a Masters in Social Work in 2005. I’ve been in human services in one form or another my entire adult life, including working with children and families as well as adults, in such settings as a school, jail, hospital, and in the community. I have experience treating issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and psychosis, as well as adjustments to major life transitions, parenting concerns, relationship issues, and trauma. Complex trauma is finally being recognized as a concern in many people’s lives, particularly for people of color, LGBTQIA+, and differently-abled.
