Jim Powell, MA, LPC
I have been working in the counseling and human potential field since the 1970’s and more specifically as a psychotherapist since 1981. I am one of the founding partners of our clinic Harmonia.
My philosophy holds that the therapeutic relationship is sacred and deserves the highest respect. In this relationship the mystery of each person’s inner being unfolds.
I honor the uniqueness and integrity of each individual I see. I view my role as a support and a guide while I join you at a very important juncture in your life. You deserve safety and trust.
The objective part of therapy may involve psycho-spiritual strategies/interventions that help integrate the insights of therapy. These approaches may include psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioral or spiritual interventions such as meditation and yoga. While I employ an eclectic style, my overall holistic paradigm is Psychosynthesis.
When I work with couples I aim to emphasize effective communication and problem solving. My goal is to empower couples to be effective in creating a mutually satisfying and caring relationship based on the principles that make a relationship highly functioning. I am not looking for the villain in the relationship but working to maximize and build on the strengths of the partnership. Sometimes I team up with one of my colleagues when doing relationship counseling. In particular, some couples like to work with my wife, Beth Wortzel, and me as a husband and wife team because of our combined professional and personal experience with relationship matters.
Aside from psychotherapy, I give individual and group sessions in sound healing and individualized instruction in the practice of meditation.
