Larry Bell, M.S. L.P.C. & C.R.C.

Larry completed a Bachelor of Science Degree from Fairmont State University majoring in Sociology and Psychology.  He earned a Master of Science Degree from West Virginia University majoring in Rehabilitation Counseling.  Larry is a Licensed Professional Counselor {LPC} in Virginia and West Virginia.  He also holds national certification as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor {CRC}.

Larry takes a Cognitive Behavioral-Behavioral approach to therapy.  He challenges people to address their needs in the three vital components of their lives: Body {Soma} – Soul {Psyche} – Spirit {Pneuma} as outlined in 1 Thessalonians 5:23. We all need to maintain balance in this ‘triangle of life’.

It is imperative that we apply Biblical Principles in dealing with the trials and tribulations of life. Prayerfully applying the counsel of the Scriptures is an essential aspect of the treatment protocol.

Larry enjoys the challenges associated with assisting individuals battling depression, anxiety, marital concerns, family of origin difficulties, and parenting skills. 

Larry has been married to his wife, Deanna, for 42 years.  He has 2 children and 3 granddaughters. He is committed to ministering in a local church setting.  He is very active with tennis and travel. He leads groups to Israel and the Middle East. He has participated in mission trips to Estonia, Russia, Siberia, Albania and Bulgaria. He has taught extensively with Walk Thru The Bible Ministries since 1987.
