Professional statement

Cynthia Powell is a Licensed Mental Health counselor and Licensed Chemical Dependency professional with over 15 years of clinical experience based in Rhode Island. She works with clients experiencing Anxiety, Stress, Life changes, Grief and Loss, Family realted issues due to substance use, Relationship issues and Recovery from toxic and abusive relationships.

Cynthia's approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based approach that focuses on helping clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, so that they can begin to make targeted change. She works to help clients understand their physical response to external stressors, and begin to problem-solve ways to introduce moments of calm, to choose to respond rather than react in the face of change.

Cynthia is focused on ensuring that her clients see real progress: her style is interactive, non-judgmental, and positions clients as the experts on where they are now, and where they want to go. A trauma-informed therapist, Cynthia is sensitive to the influence of past experiences on present challenges, and works closely with clients to reframe the narrative of their life in a way that increases self-confidence and compassion.

Cynthia's first priority in starting with a new client is ensuring that they feel safe, heard, and like an equal partner in the therapeutic process. As a seasoned telehealth provider, she offers the convenience of remote sessions to help make therapy a core component of your self-care calendar.
