Pearl Health Counseling Team

Aspen Benson


Aspen is a Licensed Professional Counselor who works with a diverse population to address a range of diagnoses. She adopts a person-centered perspective, believing that each individual has innate potential to reach whatever goals they may have and strives to support clients through their unique journeys. Genuineness, unconditional positive regard and acceptance, and empathic understanding are fundamental to Aspen’s counseling approach. Creating a safe space for all emotions to be felt and processed, Aspen utilizes a collection of therapeutic techniques to tailor her practice to each individual. She is thrilled to begin her career at Pearl Health Clinic as the clinic’s values closely align with her own.


Aspen first went to college to study chemistry. Toward the end of her college career, she added a dual major with criminology, and graduated with degrees in both. She was involved in an undergraduate internship that first introduced her to counseling as she worked alongside counselors with adolescents at risk of incarceration and addiction. After graduating college, Aspen realized her passion did not lie with chemistry, but instead with compassion, support, and helping others. Deciding to quit her stable job in a chemistry lab to pursue graduate school was the best decision she could have made and taught her the importance of following your own passions, regardless of criticism. She graduated from Walden University with a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She jokes that she is just collecting degrees that begin with the letter C. All jokes aside, Aspen has found her place and looks forward to continuously growing as a counselor.
