Lucy (Beth) Powell, LCSW, is a Conroe, Texas-based psychotherapist, neurobehavioral educator, college professor, workshop facilitator and author who specializes in helping people, especially children and families, heal hearts, minds, brains, bodies, and relationships with themselves and with others. She has over 25 years of professional experience in counseling and psychotherapy and over 35 years of public speaking and teaching what she has learned to help others.
Beth has an entertaining and interactive workshop presentation style that not only educates but entertains appreciative audiences. Her common sense, “southern” origins are evident in her writings which are based upon her personal experience and professional expertise. Her therapy clients appreciate her thoroughness, her custom-designed solutions with a spiritual touch, and her humorous, yet loving style of communicating even the most difficult of concepts into easily understandable pieces of palatable information.
Beth’s psychotherapeutic and neuro-behavioral treatment approach is uniquely systems-based and cost-effective. She came from a hard place herself, so she has the personal experience to relate to others who have a trauma/loss background. She is able to quickly identify and address the sources of one’s problems and equips people with the tools and resources to continue their healing away from the professional therapy room.
