Dr. Clarissa Belle

Licensed Psychologist and Owner

I am a wife, mother, and psychologist. Through the development of safe and supportive relationships, I assist children, adolescents, and child-serving systems in healing from traumatic experiences. During my doctoral studies at University of Kentucky and 10-years of professional experiences across numerous settings, such as school-based mental health clinics, university research and clinical settings, community mental health, and private practice, I have come to understand there is often significant pain behind the tough exterior and withdrawn demeanor of children and adolescents. Coping with traumatic and terrifying life events is hard and witnessing and sharing the pain of others at times is difficult, as well.  However, I continue to persevere because children get better, families heal, and systems become stronger. I am blessed and honored to be a part of this process and look forward to assisting your family or organization on their journey.
