I have been a licensed clinical social worker in Kansas for more than 40 years. As an African-American, faith based woman, I am a seasoned professional counselor, life coach, teacher, consultant, and administrator.
Experiencing the journey of life can be challenging and difficult. Finding peace can be overwhelming, therefore, I applaud you for taking the courageous step to seek counseling support. You deserve to live your best life.
If you desire to achieve a healthy state of mindfulness and wellness, it is important to gain insights about how your mind, thoughts and consciousness play a powerful role in helping you see beyond your current issues and struggles. If you desire, I will support you to include your faith within the therapy process.
My counseling style is warm, engaging, positive, but yet focused, and goal oriented. I will encourage you to utilize your strengths and personal resources to help guide your treatment plan. I have worked with a wide range of multicultural clients including, children, adolescents and adults.
I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Kansas, and a Doctorate of Philosophy degree from Kansas State University in Adult and Continuing Education.
If you are ready to make the commitment and take the time to becoming your best self, I would be delighted to be your counselor.
Remember your future is always beginning now!

Dr. McGowan is very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. She is very easy to work with, and has genuine concern to help you through whatever problem you may be facing. I have been working with her for a few months now and I feel so much better about myself and the issues I was having in my life, would strongly recommend!
I can’t say enough great things about Juanita. From the moment we first spoke, her expertise was apparent. She has amazing attention to detail, is a great listener, and really knows how to fully utilise the time we have in our sessions. I had a couple of therapists before her on this app, and she is by far the best. She really sets a standard that should be applied to every other therapist on this app. She strikes the fine balance between positivity, affirmations and accountability. I’ve learned so much from her in the two sessions we’ve had, and I can’t wait for the progress to continue.
Dr. McGowan is just what I needed on this journey to a better me !
