Ben Fineman, AMFT
Hi, I’m Ben. I’m an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#119754) who helps people of all ages overcome their challenges and find a greater sense of resilience and connection to what is truly important in their lives.
My work with teens and adolescents is focused on developing healthy relationships, exploring identity, and learning to cope with anger, anxiety, depression, and other common challenges of middle school and high school years. I also enjoy providing support to young professionals and entrepreneurs for issues related to burnout, life transitions, and feelings of unfulfillment. I offer relationship counseling as well, helping couples to improve their communication and strengthen the bonds of trust.
I received a Master’s in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy from University of the West. I am currently seeing teens and tweens, adults, and couples throughout California via online therapy, and I will return to the Encino location of Curt Widhalm & Associates once the pandemic subsides. I look forward to helping you meet your goals for therapy.
