“I lead with integrity. At ILC, it’s all about making sure clients are getting exactly what they need and that I can be of service to them.” – Kristen Powell
Kristen Powell is the face of Integrative Life Center in the nation’s heartland. As an outreach and resource specialist, she meets with referral sources, potential clients and families in and around Chicago. Her extensive experience in the behavioral health field helps her analyze an individual’s needs and expectations to determine if ILC is the right fit.
With more than 30 years of experience, Kristen, a licensed therapist, is rooted in the world of recovery. She was drawn to the field as a result of family struggles with addiction. When she first met members of the ILC leadership team, Kristen felt a strong affinity with their compassion for clients, and the diverse modalities they use in treatment.
A Chicago native, Kristen graduated from Eastern Illinois University and worked as a counselor in a California treatment center. She later earned a master’s in counseling at National Louis University. An internship with an Employee Assistance Program led to positions with EAP providers.
Spending time with family—husband Matt and young adult children Zach and Madelyn—is Kristen’s favorite pastime. She also loves to exercise and tackle DIY home projects with Matt.
