Hi! My name is Ben Thompson and I am a clinical social worker in Massachusetts. I am the Director of Psychological Counseling Services at the Williston Northampton School in Easthampton, Massachusetts and have had a private psychotherapy practice for 32 years. I am in the process of morphing my private clinical practice into a “mental health and performance psychology for athletes” practice.
I play lots of sports regularly, including tennis, platform tennis, ice hockey, distance running, softball, golf, and Ultimate frisbee. I’ve run a couple of marathons and, a loooong time ago, was the New Jersey state champion in the half mile run.
In recent years, I have coached high school ice hockey, Ultimate, and tennis.
I hope to gather additional skills related to mental toughness and optimal performance in athletics.
