Ben Brees, MA, AMFT


Benjamin Brees, a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, joins the Bayside Marin clinical team as a Primary Therapist, leveraging his expertise in blending biology, psychotherapy, and somatic techniques to foster healing in individuals grappling with trauma and addiction.

Benjamin holds a B.A. in Biology and an M.A. in Somatic Psychotherapy. His journey into healthcare and addiction recovery was sparked by a profound desire to witness and support the transformation that can occur when individuals seek recovery.

 Prior to joining Bayside Marin in April 2023, Benjamin worked at the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy, where he developed his approach to integrating biology and psychotherapy to address trauma and addiction through somatic interventions. Somatic psychotherapy focuses on fostering the mind-body connection, viewing the body as a reservoir of deeper understanding of emotional and traumatic states, as well as a wellspring of resources for overcoming them. This approach leads to profound healing and recovery from addiction by empowering individuals to access their innate capacity for resilience and self-regulation through somatic awareness.

 Outside of his professional endeavors, Benjamin enjoys staying active outdoors.
