John Bellan

John Bellan, CADC

Primary Counselor and Clinical Team Leader

John is the son of 2 social workers; his path to help other was set at birth. His strong desire to assist people in need has guided him with a willingness to expand his human experience through service. This desire has lead him to volunteer one year of service to aid Katrina Victims in Mississippi. Through this experience, he learned about the great compassion and empathy that people show to others in time of need. John returned home with a new fire to help others. This lead to his concentration in addiction counseling. He brings to Victory Bay years of experience in multiple modalities and a folksy way of leading clients to formulate their own personal journey through life.

“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell, (1904-1987)
