Greetings and welcome to my profile. My name is Ken Powers, Jr. and I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. Actually, I am licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in three states. I serve as the Director of Behavioral Health for a Federally Qualified Health Care Facility (FQHC). I am a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers through the National Association of Social Workers. I am also a Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work through the American Association of Clinical Social Workers. The American Board of Examiners in Clinical Social Work states, "The Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work (BCD) certification is a national hallmark of quality practice, recognized by insurers, professionals, healthcare companies, courts, and consumers." In addition, I am an Ordained Minister of 29+ years who has been providing a unique combination of professional and christian counseling throughout my current pastorate of 15 years. I have many other credentials and accolades but it has been my experience that people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. I would be honored to use my experience and compassion to join with you in exploring ways that I might be helpful. I would love to help you discover your strengths that can be used in overcoming your challenges.

Ken has helped me, and is still helping me, go through one of the toughest times in my life. His personal stories, ability to listen, and honest advice are invaluable. He has brought me hope where there seemed to be none and has let me know that my life will continue and be full no matter the outcome.
Ken has the ability to both listen, understand and offer his own personal stories when appropriate and helpful. I have been very pleased with our sessions and feel that I am getting what I need to understand my issues and ways to deal with them
I've only been doing this for a few weeks but so far Ken is very attentive to me. He answers all my questions and concerns.
Ken has been a fantastic counselor. He listens, asks questions, and makes fair points. Ken tries his best to make himself available as often as possible. Couldn't recommend him any more highly!
