Chloe Powell

Therapist (Psy.D. Student in Clinical Psychology)

I am a third year Doctor of Clinical Psychology student at Adler University. Both my clinical training and work experience have provided me the opportunity to work with individuals experiencing a variety of mental health difficulties including, depression, anxiety, substance use, and schizophrenia-spectrum disorders.

My approach to therapy is fundamentally person-centered, prioritising a warm, empathetic, therapeutic relationship at its core. I primarily work from a cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) framework; however, I am able to integrate other areas of evidence-based therapies (e.g., DBT, Existential Therapy, and Mindfulness) when fitting. I work collaboratively with my clients and allow their needs, strengths, and goals to be the navigating compass of their journey.

I have previous experience working on an Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team in the United States, mostly supporting individuals experiencing homelessness, as well as serious and persistent mental health difficulties. Through this experience, I had the privilege to work with individuals from a variety of racial, socioeconomic, sexual, and gender orientation backgrounds.

Currently, I am in my third-year of the Psy.D in Clinical Psychology program at Adler University. I received a B.Sc in Psychology from the University of Birmingham, in the United Kingdom.

In my spare time, I enjoy exploring the city and spending time with my friends, family, and golden retriever.
