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 :)

LPC #2660 (Expires: 2018-07-31)
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.
Brooke was very genuine, seemed like she really cared and responded quickly.
Brook is very responsive and gives me options to think through my challenges.
I have just started working with Brooke, but I can already tell how knowledgeable she is! She really does have lots of tips, tricks, and ideas that really help me out! It is so nice to have someone who is always there for me when I’m going through a rough time!
Very knowledgeable in her craft and always stays in touch and double checks with you. Willing to adapt to accommodate any mental quirks I had too.
I love that I can express myself and have someone that understands.
Brook and I are still getting to know each other, so we haven't been able to REALLY dive in yet, but so far she is extremely understanding, she replies to me quickly, and even the few times there's been a chance for her to offer guidance/techniques to help me calm myself down, they've worked so well. I'm extremely grateful to have been paired with her and I have complete faith in her. She's a wonderful councilor.
Brooke was a wonderful counselor. her suggestions and methods were extremely helpful.
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.
Thank you and I’ll be back when life settles down.
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!
Brooke has been great! She has given me the tools I need to feel better on the inside and is always there when I need her.
Brooke's really kind hearted and I enjoyed talking to her! She's super positive and really great.
Brooke has really helped me. She is thoughtful and understanding, and full of good ideas to help make progress in my counselling sessions.
Brooke is very patient, and kind.
Absolutely what I needed. Very clear instructions and friendly approach.
5 stars she's a sweetheart!
Considerate, helpful and accommodating of my schedule. Great experience and highly recommended.
Great listener and is always available to help
She is very helpful and honest in her answers to my questions on how to handle difficult situations. She makes you feel comfortable and like your feelings matter. I would absolutely recommend her!
Brooke has been in frequent contact, had an optimistic attitude, and took cues from what I shared with her to suggest a set of mental wellness practices that have had a rapid positive effect.
have only just began my counselling but yes so far so good!
Thank you for your assistance, Brooke!
