About me

Hello!
We all have moments and experiences when we seek support and advise from those who have been there, and done that and perhaps more. We seek support from those who are considered experts regarding our needs. Well let me say, you have come to the right site and you, now have an opportunity to work with one of the most highly trained psychotherapist in the field of psychology.
My name is Dr. Patricia Bell, LMHC (License Mental health Counselor). I have a PsyD. in Counseling from a well respected and accredited university. And I have more than fifteen years experience in the field of Counseling and Psychotherapy.
​I’m confident that together we can work to help equip you with the necessary tools to help you whether you’re struggling with Relationships, Depression, Anger Management, Substance-related Issues, Anxiety, or Low Self-Esteem Issues, it is important that you know you don’t have to be alone in this journey. I have the experience to help you achieve your goals, overcome these struggles, and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
During my work process, I often incorporate techniques and ideas from other counseling modalities. However, my foundational reference of training comes from Cognitive therapy. Cognitive Therapy is a modality (therapy) which seeks to challenge and to address negative self-thoughts and behaviors. All in an effort to dismantle and/or alter unwanted behaviors or mood patterns such as depression.
My working experiences has included the very young to the most matured with age. I enjoy working with people. And I believe that you too are ready to began your journey of change, as evident by you reaching out. This one act along is a giant positive step in the right direction.

In my first session I feel like I was talking to someone who completely knew what they were doing. While we still have a long road ahead to get to know each other, Dr. Bell makes me feel confident I can trust her to help guide me in the best way through my difficult journey.
