Bennett Minchen, MA, LPC

Bennett Minchen

Bennett completed his Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Geneva College in 2018, graduating with honors. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. He completed his clinical internship in the counseling center at Geneva College and collected his post-graduate practice hours working with adolescents as well as individuals struggling with substance use. Bennett takes a relational approach to counseling, believing that change happens when people feel safe, seen and heard. Bennett strives to create that environment to invite people into process of healing. He feels best equipped to work with adult men who are struggling with faith, family-of-origin issues, marital distress, sexual addiction, and general anxiety/depression.

Each client has their own story and Bennett values approaching problems with a systemic lens, assessing all factors of that person’s life and the impact they have on wellbeing and functioning. He finds it beneficial to utilize attachment theory, Bowenian theory, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) to frame the therapeutic process. Faith in Jesus Christ is the foundation of Bennett’s life and he would gladly welcome the involvement of that perspective into the therapy process if that is something of interest to the client. In his spare time, Bennett enjoys quality time with his wife, coffee, sports and exercise, playing drums and traveling!
