My name is Cameron Bentley and I graduated from Austin Peay State University with my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am located at our Clarksville office and am open to working with clients from a variety of diverse backgrounds. No matter the issue, providing a safe environment will help us all reach our unlimited potential. I believe we have the answers for any of the struggles we are going through in life and we have never been put in a comfortable enough environment to determine those answers. I trust in all of my clients to have the ability to solve all of their issues and I consider it to be a privilege to be beside them on their journey.
I practice play therapy of various types including child-centered play therapy and sand tray. These can be used with every age group in a variety of ways. I believe some children communicate more effectively with toys than with words. A child is able to demonstrate control over their experience using toys; leading to mastery and feelings of self-esteem.
I have a passion for mental health and giving back to the community. I especially have a passion for childhood mental health from ages of preschool to adolescence. I believe in an entire systems approach and work closely with families and individuals to get them where they want to be.
Other fun facts about me: I am a dog person. I love scary movies. I am a huge fan of soccer and football.
