Her initial specialization started with children struggling with RAD, ADHD, PTSD, sensory & behavior problems, adoption & attachment issues as well as complex trauma. Her extensive experience began with in-home therapy of children involved in CPS and foster care due to abuse and neglect. Soon after, due to disclosure, treatment focus expanded to the treatment of childhood sexual abuse, incest as well as emotional, physical abuse. Key emphasis work done was with parents to better protect & then understand their children’s behaviors as symptoms vs “fix the behavior” or blame the child. This serves to empower parents to better meet their child’s developmental needs, improve attachment wounds & healing and deepen the “authentic” caring & support relationship.

Veronica Powell, RN, APNP
I’m elated, and it is a privileged to join the team of Be the Change Health and Wellness LLC. I am a graduate of Alverno College in Milwaukee, WI with my BSN in 2008. I continued my education at Purdue University Global online with my MSN in 2019. I was able to accomplish this goal as a single mother of three children, with my oldest being severely autistic. Although this was a challenge, I was able to set the platform for advocacy for some of the most vulnerable populations. Throughout my career in the military, as a registered nurse and now in as an advanced practice nurse practitioner I have had a true passion for psychiatry/mental health and substance abuse treatment. I established my advanced practice nursing career becoming certified in family practice because I believe that treatment of the patient must be holistic with the mind, body and soul. Now I will have the opportunity to enhance my development by helping patients develop a better quality of life by improving their mental health and wellbeing!!
