About Me

Tyler Benjamin (he/him and they/them) holds a Master of Social Work (MSW) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. They are a provisionally licensed clinical social worker working as a psychotherapist. Tyler believes therapy can help individuals uncover, create or follow paths to desired insights and new behaviors as individuals and as partners in the important relationships that ultimately animate community.

As a gentle presence and an active listener along that journey, Tyler follows clients’ leads while offering them a companion in suffering, a magnifying glass for hope, and an accountability partner for trying new things. Tyler emphasizes reliability, curiosity, compassion and courage both in the work clients do for themselves, and in Tyler’s relationship with their clients.

Sessions with Tyler generally center on using words (vocalized or written) that directly relate to and address a client’s main therapeutic concerns, but sessions may also include creatively expressive, somatic, or mindfulness practices that address the client’s concerns in additional ways.

Otherwise, Tyler will collaborate with clients to approach therapeutic concerns from any of the following angles: past experiences; current thoughts, feelings, sensations and behaviors; stories of self or others; social systems of power, privilege and oppression.

Tyler is interested in working with clients who are turning toward any of the following concerns right now: grief and loss; death and dying; life changes in young adulthood (18-30); anxiety; stress from laboring for social change; identity questioning (especially privileged race, class and gender); and strain in important interpersonal relationships.
