Message from Mackenzie

There are a lot of adolescents and adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, or substance abuse and they want to break out of unhealthy habits, move forward, and learn how to make good decisions regarding their mental health.

Many individuals who come to me for assistance often express frustration with the self-sabotaging behaviors that they experience. These behaviors hinder their ability to live a fulfilling and satisfying life.

I’m Mackenzie Benson, a therapist at Cedar Tree Counseling, and I specialize in helping adolescent and adults with substance abuse, eating disorders, trauma, as well as anxiety and depression.

I understand one can feel powerless when struggling with these symptoms, which is why I use evidence-based interventions and a compassionate, non-judgmental approach. My goal is to support you in developing the skills and strategies you need to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

At Cedar Tree, we’ve made getting started with counseling simple.

Cedar Tree's Mission:
