My years of experience have afforded me the opportunity to interact with people from all walks of life which continues to be one of the most rewarding aspects of the work that I do on a daily basis.

My experience thus far with Ms. Fowler as my therapist have been nothing short of amazing, promising and supportive of my issues that I'm currently experiencing and the past situations as well. Ms. Fowler guides and works with me how to handle things when triggers occur. It has been a positive and enlightening experience to have someone that understands and supports me for what I've been thru and will continue to be supportive and there when I needed someone to not judge me. Ms. Fowler has given me the upmost respect and the support that I never thought I would find from a stranger. With given this is my first therapist ever in my 47 years of life, she has helped me grow and to understand the why's and the "how to" handle when things occur or trigger a breakdown. Thank you Ms. Fowler, you are the best!
