Alena Bell is not currently accepting new clients.

Are you feeling anxious or down? Are you unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living your best life? Therapy is a collaborative process of growth and self-discovery. I promote this process of transformation and change in my clients through the development of greater self-acceptance and self-awareness. I want to help you make the changes you desire, and to live your best life, on your terms. I treat a wide range of clinical issues and invite clients of diverse identities and backgrounds into my therapy practice.

I am trained in a Psychodynamic therapy orientation. I specialize in working with complex trauma in adults experiencing issues of anxiety, mood disorders, emotional dysregulation, interpersonal functioning, relationship issues, and substance abuse. I utilize Trauma-Informed therapy and Mindfulness based approaches in my work with individuals and couples.

Deciding to reach out for help and support is taking the first step toward better mental and emotional wellness. Finding a therapist that is right for you may feel overwhelming. Please contact me today for a free 10-minute phone consultation, and find out if therapy is right for you.
