Marilyn Ben, LCSW-R

Marilyn is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor Emeritus. She has been in full-time practice since 1983. Her theoretical perspective is eclectic, developed from her educational background in family mental health and experience with adults with substance use issues, mood disorders, and adjustment disorders. Her work with individuals and couples is solution-focused, designed to alleviate presenting symptoms and develop more effective coping skills. Realizing that we all have histories that contribute to how we function, her goal is to help people come to terms with their past by taking charge of their present while improving their ability to make choices that can lead to a better quality of life.
