Our Story

Powerful has been a project in the making, long before the idea of a practice bloomed. It's the convergence of two helpers passionate about empowering underserved populations, particularly women, and two careers revealing the reality of wellness—the mind-body connection and the importance of understanding and caring for the whole self.

 

While on our own professional paths, we identified roadblocks in treatment, especially for women. We supported each other as sisters and as colleagues in healthcare, enriching each other's understanding of the benefits of pelvic health PT and mental health counseling, and the powerful combination of the two.

On a mission to provide treatment the way we know our clients deserve and to remove barriers for new moms, we formed PWH, offering in-home and virtual care that's one-on-one, and multi-faceted, that explores and addresses many interconnected challenges at once. In order to help our clients get lasting results and understand how to maintain them, we insist on clients getting truly customized care, dictated by needs, not financial and bureaucratic systems.
