Close Up

Welcome, my name is David Bell, LCSW-C. I am a clinical social worker in the central Maryland region.

I specialize in deeply transformational and experiential approaches to psychotherapy and mental health. Meaning, I focus on transformation of symptoms and negative emotional states to positive emotional states and human flourishing.

I believe that even among the deepest wounds of trauma and pathology there still lies tremendous potential for resilience and change. 

I also believe that an effective therapist needs to be accountable to their clients for being impactful and helpful and in this I work almost moment by moment to meet my clients where they are at.

I work with adults who struggle with trauma and other stress related experiences, depression anxiety, attachment problems and the majority of the types of emotional struggles that a human being may face.

I serve clients who generally live in Anne Arundel County, Howard County,Baltimore County, and Baltimore City.

My private practice is located in Catonsville at: Catonsville Counseling and Wellness
