Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor

Take your life back! I can help you create goals to conquer your issues. Change is hard and doesn't happen overnight, but it's possible. You just need someone to believe in you until that someone IS you. Gain new perspectives on things by strategically and logically breaking down your issues into little pieces that you are better able to deal with. 

Your situation is unique and no one belongs in a box. Only you know what you've been through and you are the expert on your circumstances. Together, we will increase awareness and create the treatment plan that works just for you.

Are you worried, stressed or feeling stuck? My goal is to help women solve and/or cope with problems in their everyday lives.
I have spent the last few years working with women concerning a range of issues. I as a wife, mother and business owner, I understand the everyday struggles faced by women and I am able to help.

Barry Bowden
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I am a retired Army chaplain who served in the military 34 years.  I believe life is all about relationships with those we love and intersect with--it can be the best of times or the worst of times.  Consequently, we need a safe place to pause, assess our situations, and consider options on how to move forward in life.  I understand the pressures and stresses of life and believe that we get some things right, but there are other areas in which we need someone who will help--by listening to us, understanding our situation, and supporting us going forward. That is what I strive to be.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

It’s normal for you to have upsetting memories, avoid certain people or places, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after experiencing or witnessing events like combat, car accidents, serious injuries, or sexual assault. Those experiences are likely impacting your work, relationships, and self-esteem. The good news is those experiences do not have to define your life. 

I am trained in a range of trauma therapies that help you reduce and manage common trauma responses like anger, depression, anxiety, and helplessness. 

Once you are properly equipped to deal with difficult experiences, you will gain the power to overcome and adapt to life’s challenges, and even thrive.  You do not have to do this alone.
