Making my first appointment with Ben at Purpose was the best decision I’ve ever made. The support and guidance that I’ve received is immeasurable. Ben creates a safe space where you feel like you can be your true self. He goes above and beyond, and offers a level of safety and kindness that is hard to find. He’s helped me navigate through some of the most difficult times in my life. Ben has guided me through personal growth, relationships, and career transformations. With his help, I’ve found the courage to work through the darkest corners of my life. I leave every session with a feeling of empowerment and self love. I’ve seen other therapists before, and nothing compares. I could never thank him enough!
I contacted Ben when I was looking for a space to hold a weekly Families Anonymous meeting. Families Anonymous is a support group for family members who have loved ones impacted by substance abuse and/or mental health disorders. Ben was so enthusiastic and supportive. He immediately said yes and within a week, the very first ‘Quad Cities Families Anonymous’ meeting was held. The space at Purpose is incredible. It more than meets our needs. I can’t thank Ben enough for his willingness to allow us to gather there and for the genuine caring he continues to show our group.
Three months ago my daughter became a client of Ben’s at Purpose. She was depressed, isolating, and lost. I was worried and scared for her. Even before her first scheduled appointment, Ben contacted her. He gave her his phone number and told her to call him if she needed to talk. That is Ben: kind, caring, and generous of spirit. The time my daughter has spent at Purpose has brought about dramatic change. Every session creates a little more healing. I do not ask her what she discusses during her sessions. That is her private time. But I have witnessed the results. She has gained confidence and self-worth. She has transformed from holing up in her room, to keeping busy with work, yoga, and friends. She shared with me that the minute she walks into the space at Purpose, she feels better. That is because of Ben. His passion and genuineness shine through. His clients know he cares. He inspires my daughter, but more importantly he has helped her to see that she is an inspiration too.
