Family Therapy and Counseling in Cary, NC—Family Therapists

Often, the people that we fight with the most are those we love the most. Why is this? In theory, because we care for and trust these individuals, we feel comfortable and confident diving into tough subjects with them. And we don’t shy away from challenging them when we don’t agree with something they have said or done. While this transparency can supplement a healthy relationship, sometimes these tough subjects and challenging situations we stumble upon end up straining our relationships. And repairing the broken ties isn’t always easy.

We all fight with our family members and struggle from time to time to maintain the health of these relationships. Fortunately, there are professionals who can step in and help us during these tough times: family therapists. Family therapists and counselors are trained to help people work through their unique conflicts. They can help you better communicate with your loved ones, manage individual issues that are affecting the family unit, and more.

Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced. –James Baldwin

Trusting and compassionate

I have known Dr. Bell for 8 years and from her work with Soldiers and families at Fort Bragg. She is compassionate, nonjudgmental, and extremely skilled as a therapist. She is super friendly and always made me happy when I was around her.

Managing Principal/Consultant

I've had the pleasure of working with Dr. Debi Bell both in group and one on one settings for the past three years. I've found her to be an ardent and compassionate listener, one who is genuinely concerned about the growth and development of individuals. Dr. Bell's warm and inviting spirit is easily noticeable and carries throughout the counseling experience. The competencies she espouses allows her to effectively work with constituents across various backgrounds and experiences, including military backgrounds. Most noticeable in my interactions with Dr. Bell is that she is an indefatigable persister in helping clients achieve maximum results in the counseling experience.
