Benjamin Lake is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner in California who has been practicing since 2022. She has an Associate of Arts in Social Service, a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and a Master of Science in Nursing. Benjamin believes in The Tidal Model – that life is a journey undertaken on an ocean of experiences. All human development, including the experience of illness and health, involves discoveries made on a journey across the ocean of experiences. At critical points in the life journey the person may experience storms or even piracy (crisis). At other times the ship may begin to take on water and the person may face the prospect of drowning or shipwreck (breakdown). The person may need to be guided to a safe haven to undertake repairs, or to recover from trauma (rehabilitation). Only once the ship is made intact, or the person regained the necessary sea legs, can it set sail again, aiming to put the person back on the life course (recovery). The Tidal Model holds few assumptions about the proper course of a person’s life. Instead, it focuses on the kind of support that people believe they need to live their own “good life.” In his spare time, Benjamin enjoys staying fit, gardening, going to the beach, walking his dog, and time with family and friends.
