Daniel Bell, LCSW

Philosophy of Care 

Daniel “Danny” Bell is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and is a Certified Clinical Supervisor who is licensed in both Virginia and Maine. Daniel calls southern Maine home and has been partnering and assisting individuals and couples with a wide variety of clinical issues including depression, anxiety disorders, relationship issues, substance use disorders, and men’s needs and challenges in our current culture. Daniel received his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Plymouth State University and received his Masters of Social Work from the University of New England. Mr. Bell was asked by his colleagues to give the class’ commencement speech upon graduation.  

Daniel draws his work from a relational, cognitive behavioral, and above all a humanistic perspective to therapy. Daniel believes strongly in the strength of the human spirit and looks at his job as tending to a beautiful garden rather than looking at people as machines that need to be fixed. Daniel’s clinical training allows him to draw on several different perspectives that are specifically suited to his patients needs and strengths. Daniel strongly believes in the collaborative nature of therapy and is skilled in utilizing motivational interviewing to assist people in making their dreams reality.  

Daniel seeks to above all create an atmosphere of respect, safety, and encouragement. Mr. Bell has found that when these conditions are met, individuals begin to engage in a process of transformation.

Justin Michaud, LCPC

Philosophy of Care 

I have been a therapist for 7 plus years and have worked in many environments to include an acute psychiatric facility working with children ages 5-12 and teens ages 13-18, as well as adult ages 18-70. I was also a director of therapy services at a residential program for young adults. I have seen some of the lowest valleys that patients have been sitting in and sat with them in that valley so that loneliness was not so daunting on the journey of empowerment and recovery. I have seen patients on the highest peaks of their life, and I stood with them as they basked in their triumphs of empowerment and recovery. I have such a burning desire to be the guide that people need when they feel lost on their journey of life. I want to stand with you tall in the moments of adversity and help guide you through as we develop sustainable stability and confidence in the vision of your future! I would be honored if you allow me to help you through your life journey and achieve the mental health you desire!
