About Tameka L. Bell 
LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor)

Tameka L. Bell is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Georgia. She received her master’s degree from Mississippi College in 2013 and has provided mental health treatment to a diverse population. Through her experience, she has treated teens, adults, families, and war veterans. Ms. Bell specializes in issues ranging from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, and familiar stressors. Utilizing a wraparound approach, Ms. Bell likes for each client to take a seat at the wheel of their life and bring along people, professionals, situations, and a skill set geared at self-improvement and overall well-being. 

Ms. Bell has an eclectic therapy style culminating in lived experiences, positivity, health confrontation, quotes, relatability, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). She uses CBT to challenge and change cognitive distortions and behaviors, improve emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems. 

Why Therapy? The simple answer is that you have chosen to prioritize yourself. When you sit in the driver’s seat, you accept a few truths; you are embarking on a journey that will be difficult, and forgiveness is a realization that you cannot change the past. Imagine yourself being free of self-defeating beliefs and behaviors and living fully in the present. Let Tameka support you in your journey. You can recover from past hurts that interfere with your success, independence, and joy in life.
