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.
This site is for my private practice in which I focus on work with adults. I work with children, adolescents and couples at a counseling group in the region as well.
I serve clients who generally live in Anne Arundel County, Howard County,Baltimore County, and Baltimore City.
