About Me

I'm a warm and caring Licensed Marriage and Family therapist. I have been practicing for 23 years. I believe in building a trusting therapeutic relationship by paying attention to each client's personal needs in a compassionate and collaborative manner. You are the one who has taken a courageous step in meeting a challenge or challenges that life has given as an opportunity to grow as a human being and as your individual self.

I utilize a solution-focused approach that attempts to work in collaboration with the client by asking questions that allows she/he to access hi/her own inner resources and abilities to build the best solution for each person. I also teach mindfulness skills that can help reduce stress and anxiety. I'm humanistic in my approach to my life and my work as a psychotherapist. I also do deeper work that assists individuals with trauma history.

I have had experience with a full range of issues: from Bipolar to addiction; from couples counseling to family sessions; I have worked with ages from 5 years old to 80 years old. I have worked with different sexual and gender orientations.

I believe in the ability of people being able to get back on track in their life with some assistance that is appropriate for each person I work with.

Written by L.E. on Dec 03, 2019 after counseling with Robert for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and sleeping disorders

Robert was very helpful when I was dealing with Insomnia that led to anxiety. Robert provided the right tools that allowed me to make progress every week and eventually helped me get rid of most of my symptoms. He is very attentive and encouraging and I felt better at the end of every call. I highly recommended Robert if you're in need of a quality and effective therapist.

I am very happy with BetterHelp! Robert is extremely helpful in discussing and validating my needs and concerns. I am very active in understanding my experiences and how it has affected me throughout my life. He has been an excellent guide to help me have deeper understanding into my traumas and how they have created and influenced the reactions in my mind and soul.

I felt very comfortable talking to Robert. Usually those from an older generation treat me like I'm just "simply a milennial" but I felt very valued as a person when I talked to Robert. He's wise and open-minded and very experienced with what he does.

Robert Bowman is an amazing counselor. He is very funny, caring, kind and resourceful. He understands where you’re coming from and he’s very relatable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a genuine counselor that they can relate to and confide in.

I just want to thank him again for giving me the boost I needed and the positive reminder to stay true to myself. It’s okay to take a little extra time to figure out what you actually want to do in life and to do what ultimately makes you happy. Thank you. I would give 10 stars if I could!
