Ben Kreader
Ben Kreader, M.A., is excited to be part of the Narrative Counseling Center. He is curious about the unique experiences of his clients and focused on helping to generate new meaning and momentum from their stories. He draws on his own background in business and the arts to bring life experience, imagination and creativity to these collaborative conversations. Ben is especially interested in helping his LGBTQIA and creative clients question the expectations placed on them by society to free their more expansive selves. He also helps clients experiencing grief to reconnect with the important parts of the people and stories they’ve lost. He approaches his work from a place of dedication and caring. Ben holds a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles and a bachelor’s degree in film, music, English, and perceptual psychology from Carleton College. He trained at The Center for Professional Counseling in North Hollywood, CA where he specialized in supporting individuals, teens, couples and families to restore their sense of agency. Ben works at NCC under the supervision of Lucy Cotter and can be reached at (323) 379-2350 or benkreader@gmail.com.
