“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.”
Meet Angela Powell, M.Ed., LPCC
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.
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.
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.
