powell.jpgJudith Powell, Ph.D. is a licensed Psychologist who has practiced in the Triangle area since 1987. Her experience includes, but is not limited to, psychotherapy with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, trauma, discrimination, social stigma, loss and grief. She also works with couples.

Her primary specialty area is therapy and psycho-education with lesbian, gay and bisexual persons from a positive, affirming stance. Among other issues, this includes coming out as well as developing and maintaining a positive sense of self. This can be difficult while living in a culture that is often not accepting of lesbian, gay and bisexual persons. Dealing with family, finding and maintaining healthy relationships, discrimination against lesbian women, gay men and its aftermath are some of the challenges LGB persons often face. Finding one's place in the Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual community, recovery from assault/trauma, sexual issues and improving interpersonal and relationship skills are all common subjects in therapy, as well.

Dr. Powell also has had extensive training and experience in therapy with heterosexual, lesbian and gay couples. She works with couples at all stages of their relationship. Some couples are just starting out and want to maximize their chances of creating a healthy, loving relationship. Others are having significant trouble and want to renew their relationship. She also works with couples who are deciding to separate and want to make the process as respectful and caring as they can.

In working with abuse and trauma survivors as well as other clients she has found EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to be a valuable tool. Dr. Powell is also trained in Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral, Existential, Systems, Solution-oriented and Interpersonal Approaches to psychotherapy and healing.
