About the Presenter:

Annetta Benjamin, MA, LPC, NCC

I have a Master’s degree in Pastoral Counseling from Marymount University, Arlington, Virginia. During my internship as a graduate student I worked as a Spiritual Care & Bereavement Coordinator at a hospice agency. Upon graduation, I continued to work as Bereavement Counselor for three years. During that time I organized and conducted three successful bereavement camps for youth who had lost a loved one. In addition, I have also worked as a Qualified Mental Health Professional for five years with Virginia Home Based Counseling Services, focusing with children, teens, and parents.

Now as a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor (NCC), I specialize in counseling children, adolescents, and young adults with behavior, academic, self-esteem, coping, communication, bereavement, and anger issues. I also counsel adults, couples, and the elderly with spiritual, bereavement, communication, family, relationships, depression, and anxiety concerns. I have been in private practice for seven years and I have been able to add five additional therapist to my practice at Benjamin Counseling Center, LLC.

In addition, to be being an individual and family Therapist, I am also a Clinical Supervisor for Resident In Counseling (RIC) therapists who are in the process of obtaining their state license as a professional counselor. Along with RICs, I currently supervise and manage undergraduate and graduate student interns, many of which have come Marymount University. In the spring of 2014, I taught the Child and Adolescent Psychopathology course for juniors and seniors at Marymount University, as an adjunct Professor.
