A Progressive Approach to Counseling and Wellness
The Progressive Therapist
If you struggle with anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, trauma or other similar concerns, and things like self-improvement, a more holistic approach to counseling, non-religious spirituality, and a non-judgmental and alternative community allied atmosphere resonate with you, we may be a great match.
I usually work with clients using one or a combination of the below approaches:
Eugene Bel, PhD, LMHC, BDiv, CHC, MBACP
Eugene specializes in integrating a combination of training in mind-body counseling, personal life experience, health coaching, mindfulness, and non-religious spirituality. He strives to help clients overcome their struggles and create change in their lives, in order to help them fulfill their highest potential. He believes that gaining insight into one’s self is key to flourishing mental health and self-actualization.
Eugene employs approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness, and non-religious spirituality/ transpersonal, according to the unique needs of his clients. In addition, he offers a compassionate presence and reverence to the innate wisdom held within each of us.
He offers an international multicultural perspective, having lived in Ukraine, the US, and England.
What Makes My Approach Different?
My approach is different in that it extends beyond the confines of traditional counseling/ psychotherapy. Depending on the client, I like to use an integrative approach that combines talk therapy with things like EMDR, CBT, Health and Wellness Coaching, Mindfulness/Awareness, and Non-Religious Spirituality/Transpersonal. I feel that this can provide a much more holistic approach to wellness in mind, body, and spirit.
In addition, I offer a more modern approach that is more about genuine human connection, as opposed to one that is more cold and clinical. I view clients as fellow human beings, not “clinical cases”. I welcome all kinds of people and do not by any means automatically pathologize clients for being “different”. I am allied with communities such as LGBTQ, polyamorous, single by choice, asexual, sex workers, and open relationship, as just some examples.

“I worked with Eugene for several months, utilizing an Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP) approach in therapy. He helped me tremendously in combating my OCD and anxious thoughts, and he always cultivated a safe space during our sessions. Our conversations anchored me and helped me learn more about myself, and I am grateful to Eugene for this. I recommend him without reservation.”
