About Frontier Psychology

What is evidence-based Psychological Practice?

Evidence-based psychological practice (EBPP) starts with selecting a therapeutic approach that has been demonstrated to be effective for a given presenting concern.  A list of evidence-based therapies published by The Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology of the American Psychological Association can be found here.  EBPP is the process of utilizing clinical skills and the expertise of the clinician to tailor the evidence-based approaches to the individual client's values, needs, and preferences.  The result is a collaborative process that leads to positive outcomes and high levels of patient satisfaction.

Cancellation Policy

There is no late cancellation fee if sessions are cancelled prior to the start of the meeting.  If clients do not cancel ahead of time, they are charged at the beginning of each session whether they attend or not.  If a client does not show up to a session, any future appointments must be rescheduled.  Fees for unattended sessions are not refundable.

COVID-19 Policy

Therapy can be in-person or virtual via ZOOM.

For in-person therapy:

  • Masks optional

  • HEPA-filter in office

  • If sick or exposed to COVID-19 within 72 hrs of your appointment, notify Dr. Powers and self-test for COVID-19 prior to visit

  • No late cancellation fee


Telehealth is a convenient way to attend therapy without having to travel.  Research on telehealth suggests that it is similarly effective as in-person therapy. 

If you utilize telehealth, participants are asked to find a location where other people cannot overhear the conversation or see the screen (including siblings).  At the start of any telehealth meeting, the provider will also ask for your location if you are not at home.
