Work With Me

Who is Trinetta Powell?

I’m a Licensed Professional Therapist with over 16 years of experience counseling and coaching women of color learn strategies to cope with life, and break patterns of limiting beliefs. As a recovering perfectionist, survivor of impostor syndrome and black woman, I know first hand how hard it can be to show up as yourself unapologetically in the workplace and in life. I am dedicated to share my experience and skills to help women of color to silence their inner critic so they can live and thrive in confidence and fulfillment.

My Story

I am originally from Mobile, AL, affectionately known as the Port City and home of Mardi Gras. Yes, before any of my New Orleans peeps say anything look it up, lol. As a kid, I always knew I wanted a career where I could help others. I had a great example of what it was like to think beyond yourself being raised by my mother. Education was an expectation growing up. I went to college with the intention that I would become a nurse. However, God had a different plan for me. While in my nursing program, I discovered that I found more fulfillment in talking with the patients and their families to provide comfort and support emotionally. So in my junior year of college, I changed my major to Sociology, with plans to attend graduate school for a degree in Counseling. Some of my family members didn’t understand why I would change from a career path that would be secure and paid well. Despite their uncertainty, I knew I was making the best choice for me.

My Leap of Faith

I graduated with my Master of Science Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling, and later became a Licensed Professional Counselor. My husband, two boys and I moved to Texas in 2010 in the midst of the recession with the hope of a better future for our family. Texas was definitely different from Alabama, lol. Once we found a community, we think it is a good fit for us.

After working for different treatment facilities and agencies, I felt ready to take a leap of faith and begin the transition of working for myself. I opened my private practice Reveal and Restore Counseling, PLLC, in February 2020. My practice is focused on helping women of color cope with the stressors of life, find balance in their increasingly growing task list, and manage their roller coaster of emotions. I have now expanded my services in consulting and coaching business owners and corporate executives in using the power of their No and building environments that foster connection and authenticity.

The Secret Sauce

The road has never been easy for me. Listen, I survived grad school during a high-risk pregnancy, getting married, major deaths in my family, living through Hurricane Katrina, and moving out of state with no extended family support. I have had to deal with naysayers, people who said they would help but didn’t, and a HUGE learning curve in starting a business. 

I am a Christian and I can say my faith is what got me through; I am definitely resilient. All of the obstacles were meant to be a part of my journey to shape who I am today. My life experiences are the secret sauce that makes my clients feel safe and combined with my expertise in the field of mental health and sustaining a successful business makes me equipped to take my clients from chaos to clarity. They know I am not perfect. It is my goal to give my clients the strategies I use to overcome my own fears, remain consistent, and pursue God’s purpose for my life.
