It's always helpful getting to know exactly which therapist is the right fit for you or your family. So please allow me to introduce myself...
My name is Benjamin Warehime. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New Jersey. I received a Masters Degree in Social work from Columbia University and have worked in various settings stemming from outpatient, in home therapy, group practices and as a care manager working with children and families.
More importantly, I am a husband, a father, a brother and a son as soon as the clinical hat comes off. Similar to you, I experience difficult and overwhelming challenges daily, and yet in spite of my years of clinical experience, I do not pretend to have all of the answers. Like you, I too am human and life stressors inevitably occur everyday. It was from an early age when I realized that regardless of who we are, or the compositions of our backgrounds, we all experience things on an individual level. Each of us has our own unique backgrounds that make us who we are. Our goals, passions and motivations in life are different, and suffice it to say, are challenging to get there. Our willingness to accept that challenge can be painful and complicated, but completely rewarding if up for the task. It was this insight that sparked my passion for this rewarding profession, of helping others take control of their lives by identifying their goals and passions and helping them feel gratefully fulfilled.
Through my years of professional and personal experience, I have gained a wealth of knowledge in understanding the concept of active listening and collaboration. These are two of my greatest strengths. Through listening and working together, I exploit these traits in my practice, working with adults, children, adolescents and families. It is these qualities that allows me to help you develop your voice and identify your goals so that you can overcome the challenges in your lives. I embrace the opportunity to meet others who are having difficulty finding the solutions to their problems. Nothing gives me more pleasure than helping others clear their own paths and achieving the goals they once thought impossible to achieve.
