Kate Powell, LCSW, MPH

Background

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.

Our Services

The Center for Emotional Health & Wellness provides person-centered, solution-focused psychotherapy services. Our psychotherapy services are grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic (CBT) techniques. CBT techniques provide us with a wide array of therapeutic options to meet our clients’ needs.

We are skilled in Motivational Interviewing (MI). We assist individuals in ending ambivalence to change with this technique.  It is person-centered and provides a wide array of therapeutic options. MI is highly effective for individuals with substance abuse disorders.
