THE WI TRANSGENDER HEALTH DIRECTORY

Ben Endres

LCSW

Mental health provider

I provide outpatient psychotherapy to individual and couples. I try to balance a practical focus with deeper insights into emotional experiences.

I have experience working with TNG clients as individuals and couples. I find there is no one-size fits all model for therapy regardless of the identities of the people with whom I am working. I tailor my work to the specific needs of the individuals and couples I see. I would be happy to speak with prospective clients on the phone to answer more specific questions about my practice and my experience.
