Melinda Bell is the Co-Founder of Christ Centered Community Counseling, aka C4. Melinda became interested in mental health and trauma after almost losing her marriage in 2008. The Lord used counseling to help bring their relationship back together. In 2016, she and her husband founded Christ Centered Community Counseling to make Christ centered counseling available to people in the urban inner city. Melinda is recognized as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor Intern and a Peer Support Specialist certified in both North and South Carolina. As a Triple P Educator, Melinda leads seminars on one of the leading international evidence-based models for parenting. Melinda also provides professional development for teachers, organizations and community members on trauma, resilience, and the brain. Melinda sees individuals, couples and families for therapy for issues ranging from substance use to trauma. However, her sweet spot is working with adolescents. While she continues to pursue the ongoing work of exploring her own story through intense individual counseling, she is also committed to making as many memories as possible with her four remarkable children and husband of over 18 years.
