Angela Powell Denver Counselor, low fee counseling, sliding scale therapist Aurora

“Maybe the best thing I’ve ever done was wait. I made an art form out of endurance.

And you were worth every single moment.”

Tyler Knott-Gregson

Meet Angela Powell, M.Ed., LPC

Have you been in a season of waiting? Waiting to reconnect with the person you love. Waiting for your kids or stepchildren to be in a different stage. Waiting for someone to come into your life. Waiting for change to come.

We have all faced times of intense waiting where it seems like we just cannot take another step on our own.  

I would be honored to walk alongside you, to help get through this difficult place and move toward meaningful change.  

Words That Describe My Counseling Style

A word cloud made up of orange, light green, dark green, and brown text of various sizes that describes Angela Powell, M.Ed., LPC, an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist and individual therapist at Thrive Couple and Family Counseling Services in Centennial Colorado.


How I Can Help

With evidence-based couples counseling using Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), we can look closer at interactional patterns, recurring arguments, feelings of disconnection, and work to re-establish comfort and trust.  

Emotionally Focused Therapy has been shown to be effective among diverse populations. It helps couples increase relationship satisfaction and intimacy, decrease arguments about specific issues, and support those couples working through infidelity.

While it’s often used for couples therapy with great results, EFT is a powerful modality for individuals as well. EFT can help you learn more about your attachment style and how you relate to others as well as give you an understanding of your emotions and the role they play in your life.

As a part of individual counseling, you and I can delve into interpersonal dynamics, explore your personal identity and goals, and move through challenges collaboratively to make sense of your thoughts and feelings.  

Together, we can start to find relief, and return your most important relationships to a place of safety, tenderness, and even joy.

Welcoming to LGBTQ+, all identities and family configurations!
