Luree Benjamin



Luree is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (LMFTA) currently accruing hours towards her full licensure. Luree received her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pfeiffer University and her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and African American Studies from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has completed post-graduate academic training in sex therapy at Council for Relationships. 

Luree works with adults in both individual and relationship therapy from a trauma-informed, person-centered, sex-positive perspective and judgment-free lens. Working with immigrants is near and dear to her heart but she is interested in seeing a wide array of clients. Luree is affirming of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and relationship structures. 

Luree sees clients via telehealth and accepts most BCBS, Cigna, and Aetna plans.  She can also see clients who would like to use out of network benefits and private/self pay clients.  

Work Philosophy

Rather than take a one-size fits all approach with clients in therapy, Luree embraces each client’s individual story and recognizes the complexities of their histories. She will meet you where you are and encourages clients to show up as their authentic selves, as she does the same. She will encourage you as you work towards healing, wellness, and embracing the fullness of yourself as an emotional, mental, and sexual being.

Luree enjoys helping individuals who find themselves in sexless relationships and recognizes the impact the implication it can have on their sense of self and self-esteem. She helps clients navigate the pressures around performance anxiety, sexual dysfunction, amongst partners’ high and low sexual arousal and desire, and shame and guilt related to sex.  


Personal Interests

In her spare time, Luree enjoys collecting quotes, eating good food, reading, resting, spending time with her children/loved ones, traveling, sleeping, and watching documentaries.
