Kate Powell, LCSW, MPH
I am an Ivy Leagued educated and highly-trained therapist (Columbia University, MPH), providing therapy for adults and adolescents who experience depression, general anxiety, social and performance anxiety, marital/couple difficulties, trauma, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, attention deficit disorder, addiction (including opiates), binge-eating behaviors, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
A breast cancer survivor and a parent of children with attention deficit disorder, I am keenly aware of how physical illness can profoundly affect mental well-being. I can provide positive and knowledgeable support for adults navigating these issues.
It has been my professional experience that support groups are a valuable supplement to individual therapy. I currently provide a wellness support group for a diverse group of women with wide-ranging support needs.
