Tammy Powell is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor-Supervisor in the state of Ohio, receiving her Masters of Arts degree from the University of Xavier in 2011. Tammy has over 10 years of experience in the mental health field working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. Tammy specializes and holds a certification in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), an evidence based treatment modality used for children and adolescents who have experienced a traumatic event. She also works with adults who have identified trauma, with the use of Trauma Focused-Cognitive Processing Therapy (TF-CPT). She has been trained in Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI); an evidenced based early intervention used to decrease posttraumatic stress reactions and the onset of PTSD. She is a member of the Southwestern Ohio Critical Incident Stress Management team (SWOCISM), a volunteer position that provides debriefings to public service workers and/or critical care providers following an incident that may be viewed as a crisis, resulting in stress and overwhelming feelings that may impede their jobs. In addition to her focus on trauma, Tammy is a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor (RPT-S); play is said to be the language of a child.
Tammy’s passion is working with adolescents who have been sexually abused, helping them move from victim to survivor by providing psycho-education, identifying their strengths and abilities, and empowering them to live up to their greatest potential. Believing that individuals can overcome traumatic events, she also recognizes the value of support systems that come from parents/guardians and caregivers, making them an integral part of the recovery process.
