Sunny Benjamin, LCSW (she/her/hers)

Telehealth Appointments &
4th Trimester In-Home Visits (Dover Area)

I'm an immigrant, mother, military spouse and woman...and those things alone make me unique. I am an unconventional therapist that can break things down in simple terms rather than clinical jargon, while still providing therapeutic support. A lot of times we steer away from therapy because it feels like a place of judgement and vulnerability that we're not ready for. My goal is to help my clients feel comfortable and supported as we work together.

 

My current population I serve is women of color and maternal mental health needs. I want to help women feel empowered and have the courage to advocate for themselves. The glass ceilings were meant to be broken! My ideal client is someone that is willing to put in the work to help make changes in their own life. Anyone can come and talk for one hour a week, but the real effort and magic happens when you're able to take the information learned in therapy and add it to your everyday life. It's amazing to see clients use their insight and reframing to make changes in their day-to-day life.

 

I am a graduate of Temple University and University of New England. I completed my graduate program while being a fulltime mother and military spouse. My focus pre-COVID was primarily children/teens, but I now found my love in working with women via telehealth. COVID helped me realize how much we all, especially parents, need help and support. Working through telehealth, while I had two kids home with me, and pregnant I saw how much more my love of this field was shifting towards women's needs. 

 

I am aware that clinical therapy is not for everyone, and I also offers life coaching services to mentally healthy individuals that may need support with an accountability partner, follow through with tasks, and overall assistance in achieving goals (coaching services not covered by insurance). I can assist with lifestyle changes, habit changes, and identifying various goals.
