About John Benassu
I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis & Clark College with emphasis in adult individual, couples, and group counseling. I hold a Bachelor's Degree from Rutgers University and I am certified by the State of Oregon as a Licensed Professional Counselor.
My professional history includes 25 years experience in technology engineering and management. My therapy work is enhanced by this experience of working with a diverse range of individuals in finding creative solutions to thorny problems. I also gained personal knowledge of successfully balancing a full work and home life, and navigating midlife career change. I have assisted many clients in identifying opportunities, moving through transitions, and creating new beginnings.
I am a member of the following professional associations:
- Existential-Humanistic Northwest
- Association of Humanistic Psychology
- National Council On Problem Gambling
- Oregon Counseling Association
On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my wife, playing golf and tennis, and making music with my friends.
