Psychotherapist and Life Coach

Wiha Powell, MA, LMSW

As a therapist and life coach, I provide a warm, supportive, non-judgmental space for individuals and couples dealing with anxiety, adjustment, depression, grief, self-confidence, life-transitions and relationship issues, and those with LGBTQI and multicultural issues and concerns.
My goal is to hold a safe, empowering space for you to delve into difficult issues, as we collaborate on formulating appropriate coping skills to improve your emotional health and wellbeing.
My treatment approach is individualized and holistic. Depending on your individual needs, I may draw on different clinical evidence-based practices, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic, motivational interviewing, emotional focus therapy, strength-based therapy, and mindfulness.
I understand it could be a difficult journey to find the right therapist to address your needs, but taking the first step toward a healthier, happier you is worth it. Please email or call to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation or book your first session.
