Erin Bell, MA, S-MFT (Supervised Marriage and Family Therapist) is from the Kansas City area and graduated from the University of Central Missouri with her Bachelors of Arts in Communication and Psychology in 2005.  After years of being a military spouse and stay at home mom, enduring hardships of her own that required her own need for counseling, Erin knew how important the work of therapy is and how impactful the field of counseling is.  Erin knew that she was meant to be a counselor to help others and embarked on the journey to become a therapist in 2016.  Erin then completed her Master’s Degree with Capella University in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Erin is passionate about helping marriages, families, couples, and individuals move through their own journey in life so they may live fully and love deeply.  Erin offers Biblical Counseling if preferred, as she is a believer in Jesus and continues to grow deeper in knowledge and faith spiritually and theologically within a therapeutic lens.

Erin offers therapy through the lens of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) as well as various modalities of treatment that are effective in therapy.  Currently, Erin works with adults, couples, adolescents, and families.  Erin works with those who have experienced trauma, attachment issues, and a variety of situations with a specialty in working with military members and their spouses, military families, deployment preparation and reintegration as well as a specialty in working with adoptive and foster families.  Erin sees a variety of clients and works to treat a variety of clientele situations and issues.  Erin views the space you share with her in the therapy room an honor and privilege and she knows what a big step it is to walk in a new uncomfortable space of freeing yourself from the difficulties you’re facing.  She is committed to walking alongside you in helping you make a positive change in your life.
