Business picture

Andrea Benn, PhD, M.Ed

Dr Andrea Benn "My initial career as a special educator has enhanced my effectiveness as a psychologist. Since education is a large part of psychotherapy, my teaching experience enables me to discuss issues in a manner which is both emotionally and educationally sensitive. This enhances the partnership which is crucial to client growth and understanding."
