Ben Anderson, LCSW
Director of Behavioral Health Services, Primary Care Counselor
Masters Degree in Social Work, California State University, Fresno
As the behavioral health director, Mr. Anderson oversees our counseling and psychotherapy services. He brings a wealth of experience as a clinician and a leader. As a social worker, he has helped children, adults and older adults. As a leader, his priorities are twofold: first, to reinforce our integrated model of care and second, to ensure that the employees who report to him are prepared to meet the challenges ahead while embracing our organization's mission of care.
Mr. Anderson came to Mendocino County from Fresno in 2003 to serve as the social worker for a children’s group home managed by Turning Point of Central California. In 2004, he began working for Tapestry Family Services, taking on positions of increasing responsibility until, in 2011, he became the organization’s executive director. In 2014, he left Tapestry to become a full-time social worker for MCHC Health Centers, where he provided therapy, and supervised clinical services at our Lakeview Health Center in Lakeport. In 2017, he became the department director.
