Asking For Myself!

Dr. Benjamin creates the space to talk about, and hear about, the issues and adjustments we continuously make within our relationships. I think she brings a fresh perspective and adds her unique style to help others feel comfortable to share their story with her. She’s also willing to listen to your thoughts and questions and always asks for feedback. I think this podcast is a good resource for professionals as well and the general public.
