Sometimes it can be challenging to connect with other members of the LGBTQIA+ community in meaningful ways. Maybe you’re seeking romantic relationships with more depth and longevity than you’ve experienced in the past. Perhaps you find yourself distanced and isolated from family or old friends and wish this were different. You might know there is a more authentic version of yourself to be discovered… a version you want to share with the significant people in your life. If this sounds familiar, I hope you'll get in touch.

I believe that care and courage, along with some healthy curiosity can go a long way in helping you locate new possibilities and finding solutions that work for you. My process is not a one-size-fits-all affair. Indeed, the work we do together is unique to each and every individual I encounter and always begins with accepting you just as you are.

Beginning the self-exploration of therapy is an act of courage. I respect your bravery by providing a calm, warm, and nonjudgmental space to discuss and process your concerns. Evening and limited weekend hours are available. A 20-minute phone consultation is offered for all potential clients at no cost.

Professional Connections

Powell brings a thoughtful and caring approach to his work with clients. He understands the challenges individuals face when trying to determine the next steps in their lives and will offer support, encouragement, and helpful reflective questions. He can be especially helpful for individuals struggling with the anxiety, finding a sense of identity, or exploring new ways of being in the world.

Every individual Powell encounters receives his gifts of calm, warmth, and presence. Powell's natural curiosity, compassion, and ability to listen leave all who meet him feeling heard, seen, and cared for. There are therapists and then there are healers - it is a rare gift to find both. If you are looking for a therapist who will help you calm the internal chaos, build harmonious relationships, and become the author of your story, you have found the perfect guide.
