CCRC is proud to periodically spotlight one of our staff therapists so as to give you a chance to get to know their unique qualities and interests. Today's spotlight is on Matthew Bell, MFT.
1. Do you have a certain therapeutic style, method, or model of therapy that you generally use?
I primarily utilize a mixture of Solution-Focused and Narrative therapy. My style, however, has continued to grow and develop over time as I have continued to be curious and open to unique individuals and stories I have had the pleasure to experience.
2. Why did you decide to become a therapist?
As the youngest of a twelve-child family, I have always been an observant person. I have always wondered how my impact could be perceived or furthered through my work and commitment to societal growth. I believe that individuals willing to value change on a small scale can lead to systemic empowerment.
3. If you were not a therapist, what would be your occupation?
If I was not a therapist, I would be furthering my commitment to and involvement with sports. I played college football and have continued to either coach or train individuals with the goal in mind of furthering their abilities in the sport.
