Maria Powell, LCSW

I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker in the state of Kansas and I obtained my Master’s of Social Work degree from The University of Missouri, Kansas City with over 15 years of experience.

My areas of focus are centered around aging, mental health, and veterans as well as focusing on PTSD, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. 

I’m trained in CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy) for PTSD, CBT-Depression, as well as many other treatment modalities. Additionally, I am a certified yoga instructor.

My approach is strengths-based and I will provide a safe place to process your life experiences. I believe that every individual is unique and I will be here to act as your guide while you grow.
