Meet Our Team

Rochelle J.C. Powell, LCSW

Co-Founder & Lead Therapist

As an alumna of the Florida State University Graduate Social Work Program, I continue to seek ways to make a large impact on this community through empathic counseling and demonstrating acceptance for all persons with respect to their age, race, gender, gender expression/presentation, religion, sexuality, economic status, and ability. 

 

I have served youth, families, and persons from all walks of life for much of my career, teaching empathy, resilience, and emotional intelligence via community outreach, mental health and wellness presentations and groups, individual and family counseling sessions, and-- not at all the least of these-- providing comprehensive sexual health education and relationship counseling. I love to learn, and I look forward to helping out your students and staff as they navigated.

I have been actively networking and reaching out to share mental health experiences via community groups/circles, social media, podcasting, or video blogging to inform the community about the importance of mental wellness, social justice, and the power of using their collective voice. I am happy to share my knowledge of our social service community with up and coming social workers. I am seeking a full-time position where I can use my therapeutic skills in creative ways, and promote good vibes in our bustling little city, especially via online/distance learning platforms. 

 

Trauma-Informed Care, empowerment, mentoring young people, advocating for equality, and yoga are some other interests of mine (I would like to become professionally trained in therapeutic yoga in the future). In addition, I'm a clinical social worker with my own part time therapy practice-- a professional experience I'd be happy to share with your students.

 

Over the past decade. I have been tapped for LGBTQ educational seminars, self-care and meditation trainings, youth workshops, and minority wellness events. I have written curricula on the topics of life skills and wellness while working as a counselor at PACE Center for Girls, so I may have comparable writing experience. Their Spirited Girls curriculum is used statewide, and used daily to help heal girls who have experienced traumas, and need to find a sense of emotional balance and safety.

Therapist - Registered Clinical Social Work Intern

My mission is to provide the highest quality of care through therapeutic modalities to help guide you to clarity and understanding in life’s most challenging moments. I make a conscious decision to sit with individuals and families in their darkest times, while honoring integrity and confidentiality. As an experienced therapist, I have expertise in mental health, depression, anger management, couple/family therapy and much more. I aim to help you achieve more fulfilling relationships, an increased sense of self, the ability to cope better with life, enjoy increased work productivity and improved adjustment to life’s many transitions.

My work with people is strength-based and client-centered. I provide a nurturing and supportive environment to meet you where you are and identify needs by listening and using your personal strengths to help guide therapeutic sessions. I utilize a variety of modalities and tools depending on your needs and goals that include but are not limited to CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy), Family Directed Structural Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Behavioral Therapy. These valuable years spent serving clients aged four to ninety years old, have influenced and enhanced my methods. I am happy to provide you with more information about any of these therapies upon request.

Our Philosophy

Searching for relief from from the stresses of daily life? Well, you can breathe easier now. There will always be time for others, but now is your chance to "reclaim your time" and focus on building and recognizing your self worth.

 

In therapy, we will begin healing the hurts that left you with anxiety and self-doubt. You'll find the encouragement you need in order to stop negative thought patterns in their tracks, while walking towards your light and your purpose.
