About Me

Life can be difficult at times and I'm glad that you're taking the first step and reaching out for help. I'm Brooke and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor. I hold a double BS degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice (Forensic Investigations), an MS degree in Psychology, and have completed extensive graduate work in Criminal Justice and Community Agency Counseling.

I've been in this field since 2003 and have worked in various settings with most all ages, backgrounds, and populations. I have experience working in an inpatient hospital, a day treatment program, a school system, a drug treatment facility, an outpatient clinic, a private practice, and with the Department of Human Resources. I use eclectic therapy, which is an approach that incorporates a variety of principles and philosophies in order to create the ideal treatment to meet your specific needs.

I am nonjudgmental, supportive, and interactive. I try to personalize the therapeutic experience in order to best address and respond to your needs. I want to understand your past and help you cope with the present so you can have a happy and fulfilling future. I look forward to working with you :)

Brooke has been invaluable in my battle with trauma recovery, grief, depression and anxiety. She’s not only practical and empathetic at the same time, but I have a feeling she’s there for me. Even when I don’t have much to say, she’ll say hello and send some general well being practices that I can use as and when I need. I highly recommend Brooke.

I am very comfortable talking to Brooke. I find her reliable and she tries to understand what I need. I recommend her :-)

I’ve not had very long working with Brooke, but from everything I have experienced so far she is exactly what I needed! She takes the time to listen to everything I tell her and thoughtfully responds. Even when my schedule is crazy and I sometimes forget to respond, she still checks up on me occasionally which I appreciate a lot. I feel like she truly cares about my mental health and helping me to a regain control of my thoughts and emotions to be able to experience happiness in my life again. I know it’s not gonna happen over night but Brooke has definitely given me tips and advice to start me on the right path.

Brooke is incredibly supportive and offers wise words during times when I need a non-anxious, differentiated presence in my life. She sees things in my life with a clarity that sometimes eludes me because of the skewed view I have of things due to the nature of my illness. She is consistent--she's there when she says she will be, and she's been a lifeline in times of deep darkness in my life. I am and will be forever grateful for having Brooke in my life.

She’s been a life saver!

So far so good. I have already recommended BetterHelp to my niece. I can’t control her decisions but at least she knows there’s always someone to talk to.

Written by O.V. on Jun 09, 2018 after counseling with Brooke for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, addictions, eating, and self esteem

I love Brooke's tips. They're simple enough that I can apply it on my daily life. She listens to me enough, but always direct me to the important parts of my problems. What I like also is she didn't belittle my problem. I don't have an extremely devastating problem compared to others, I guess, I'm from a good supporting environment, but she addresses my problems accordingly. Thank you.

Written by A.M. on May 08, 2018 after counseling with Brooke for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, eating, sleeping, and self esteem

I am 51 years old and started therapy (off and on, more on than off) when I was 28 years old. I have never had a therapist give me REAL, USEFUL ways to deal with my issues before. It has always been, "And how does that make you feel?" or "Your feelings over the things that have happened are valid." Ok, that's great, they're valid...help me move on. No one has in the past. Ms. Bowen really has! She gives me tools and strategies that I can use to live with my issues, AND function, while validating my feelings. I went outside of my home, without anxiety and no terror feelings, for the first time this past weekend, in ten years.

My counselor is Brooke Bowen - she has been very compassionate, non-judgmental, neutral, and helpful. She provides a lot of useful information regarding each concern or topic that we discuss. She checks in with me roughly twice per day, and I feel like she has my best interests at heart. I've connected better with her than with any other therapist I've had in my past.

Brooke has and continues to help me with many issues, she is kind, patient and fully understands. I'm a difficult case, but she took me on in her stride and went with it, I've felt really comfortable talking to Brooke and it feels like I'm talking and actually getting help from another human for once, she is simply amazing. I hope to continue being her client despite my struggles ongoing, it is a battle and I don't make it easy but Brooke has been there for me thus far!
