Joe Benedetti, BA
I am a student at Adams State University pursuing my Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I believe the best perspective for assisting individuals in resolving their emotional and personal issues and problems is the wellness model of mental health. I focus on building a therapeutic relationship and help clients explore issues that directly affect them. I accept clients where they are, establish rapport, and help provide motivation. Most issues individuals face in life are developmental in nature and understanding the dynamics of human growth and development is essential to success as a helper. I teach clients how to correct faulty information processing so they can view situations more realistically. I believe counseling is for everyone and believe in the power to humor.
Personally, I am a Colorado native and huge sports fan. I enjoy exercising, cooking, ancient history but mostly, I cherish spending time with my 13-year-old daughter.
