Katrina Bell, LPC-S

Licensed Professional Counselor

Is your teen’s excessive emotional behavior or outbursts causing stress at home and/or school? Are you worried your adolescent suffers from anxiety or depression but aren’t sure how to help them?

In my 10+ years of experience as a school-based mental health counselor and clinical therapists, I have helped countless children build a tool-set to healthily manage their emotions, increase their self-esteem, and learn coping skills that will help them for the rest of their life.

Are you feeling overwhelmed and burdened or feeling stuck and stagnant in life and need help or guidance moving forward?

I help adults struggling with a life transition, grief/loss, stress from daily life, or finding the motivation to accomplish necessary next steps. Working with you as a team, I help you begin the process of moving forward and making positive changes towards a brighter future.

Are you or a child struggling in a significant relationship, family-dynamic, or school situation?

With their permission, here are some experiences of former clients…

I am thankful to have found Katrina who is a positive and motivating counselor. Before seeing Katrina, I had difficulty dealing with life stressors, but her guidance has helped me continue to push forward and deal with things out of my control.

I have done counseling in the past, but this experience was the best I have ever had. When I leave Katrina’s office I feel as though the weight on my shoulders had lifted. I am very grateful and blessed to have a counselor as phenomenal as her!

Katrina is excellent! It is extremely comfortable to open up and talk with her.
