Marvin Bellows is Licensed Professional Counselor. As a self proclaimed nerd, he seeks out others who feel marginalized or misunderstood in their uniqueness. They may also call themselves nerd, geek, gamer, or otaku. Whatever identity they have, Marvin’s welcoming and non judgemental style will feel comforting.
He, like most counselors, believe building a relationship on mutual respect, honesty, and developing trust is the core of any effective counseling. Beyond that, he also offers a blend of
- traditional talk therapy
- TTRPG (table top role playing games)
- ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)
- EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing).
These modalities work well for those who are experiencing anxiety or are feeling trapped, struggle with memories of the past that keep them from living in the present, find it hard to get out of bed every day, or have habits or behaviors that bother them or the people around them.
He has a diverse professional background in working with individuals affected directly and indirectly by traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries- often experiences that most counselors do not have. Individuals with these differences in mobility and cognition, as well as those on the Autism Spectrum find comfort in Marvin’s personality and expertise.
