Ben Dickerson - Intern

Qualifications/Background/Experience

Ben is a Master Level Intern currently pursuing a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling degree from Grand Canyon University. Ben has his undergraduate degree in history and philosophy and an M.A. in Religious Studies from Arizona State University. He has been teaching at the junior high and high school level for 18 years, while also teaching community college classes part time. He has been married for 19 years and has 2 children and 2 dogs.

Ben is passionate about helping people. When it comes to counseling, he is a strong believer in the need to not just treat outward symptoms, but to address root causes. When a person’s deepest concerns are addressed, outward issues become significantly easier to manage. Ben believes in identifying underlying issues in order to help people find lasting stability in their lives. He firmly believes there is hope to be found even in the midst of very difficult trials. He is committed to doing everything he can to help others as a therapist.

Ben became a Christian in 1996 when he was 16 years old and he has been walking in the faith ever since. He has devoted a great deal of his time over the years to learning about the Bible and the history of Christianity and teaching others about these topics. He is an avid reader and particularly enjoys reading history and classic literature, and can often be found reading books with his two children, Paul (14) and Eleanor (11).

Ben is in the process of completing his training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. He is working under the direct supervision of Theresa Hay, who is an approved Clinical Supervisor through the Arizona Behavioral Health Examiners.
