Ben Rastegari, LPCC


I believe that helping people realize a positive outcome in therapy begins with building a relationship founded on trust, confidence, and safety. I work hard to provide a therapeutic environment free of judgment with defined boundaries, clear communication, and stability. I have been with Canvas for over ten years and am more passionate than ever about the work we do for our clients.

Whether you have been attending therapy your whole life or seeking support for the first time, I look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your growth and recovery.
