About Me

Hello, my name is Barbara Bell, I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) and Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist (LCAS) in the state of North Carolina. I have been working in the counseling profession for over 12 years. I have experience working in various counseling setting such as private practice, in home, and school setting. My approach to counseling is meeting the individuals where they are. I like to use an eclectic approach to assist individuals with their presenting challenges and goals such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focus, and Reality therapy to name a few. I like to provide individuals with tools to help them work through ways to finding a solution which will enhance their overall well-being. I have worked with adolescents, children, adults, families and couples of various racial, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds that have struggled with behavioral, mental health, substance abuse, anger management, and parenting challenges.

I believe that the relationship between the individual and counselor is a collaborative one. I pride myself on creating an atmosphere where the individual can explore their inner strengthens and weaknesses to achieve their best results. My goal is to provide active listening, support and understand for individuals as they strive for balance and self-fulfillment. I will not discriminate against any individual based on ethnic group, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, records of public offense or disability.
Counseling provides the opportunity for growth and self-discovery in the context of a safe, supportive and therapeutic relationship. I want to thank you for taking that first step and considering me to be a part of your journey of healing and self-fulfillment.

Thank You.
