Ben France



I believe that we are all on a journey to try to make the best life that we can for ourselves. We all do the best we can with what we have, but sometimes we face struggles that we are unprepared to deal with. During these tough times, having a trusted, caring, empathic person to turn to can make all the difference. As your counselor, it is my honor to be that person. I will work side by side with you to help you discover how to navigate the turmoil that you are facing, to help you see options that might not be readily apparent to you, and to be with you during this part of your journey. My goal is to be someone who accepts you for who you are and for what you are facing at this difficult time in your life. Together, we can find new ways for you to not just survive through these struggles, but to thrive in this time and in your life moving forward>

I am a provisionally licensed professional counselor with Counseling Solutions. I graduated with a Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling from Missouri State University in 2016. Prior to that, I obtained a bachelors degree in Psychology and Sociology from Drury University. I have provided counseling services for a variety of struggles, including but not limited to: depression, anxiety, marital and family issues, social adjustment issues, and self esteem issues for adult individual clients, adolescent clients, couples, and small groups. I offer an eclectic approach to counseling, tailoring my approach to what I feel will best help you and your situation.


  • Individual
  • Couple
  • Family
  • Adolescent and teen
  • Small group


I offer a sliding scale for payment based upon your financial situation with rates ranging from $40 to $60 per 50-minute session. Group sessions, once implemented in the future, will be at a rate of $25.00 per 90-minute session.

Private pay clients are accepted. Soon Medicaid will be accepted for clients ages 11 through 18. While I cannot accept private insurance directly at this time, I am happy to provide a receipt that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.
