Dr. Brian Bello was born and raised in Orlando, FL. He completed his bachelor’s degree cum laude in Psychology, with a minor in Spanish, before completing his medical degree at Ohio State University. He did both his general psychiatry residency and child & adolescent psychiatry fellowship at LAC+USC Medical Center.

Dr. Bello has a particular interest in early childhood trauma and the many ways that complex interpersonal trauma manifests in both children and adults. His framework for treating clients is always rooted in understanding how their personal experiences and environment are contributing to their presenting problems. While he believes that medication can significantly help alleviate his clients’ suffering, he believes that, for most people, it is only one piece of the puzzle. Because of this, Dr. Bello seeks to incorporate complementary methods when working with clients on their treatment plan. Depending on the client’s particular preferences, this can include, spirituality, mindfulness, music, yoga, martial arts, and other forms of exercise.
