My name is Walter Bowers and I am a licensed professional counselor or LPC for short. I have been licensed for more than 20 years and have more than 25 years of counseling experience. I have helped many clients make positive choices regarding problems that they have presented in counseling sessions with me. The approach that I use is rational choice and is based on Robert Glasser's Choice Theory. I teach clients how to apply the theory to their own lives which allows them to realize that the only things that they can control are their own behaviors. This is important to know because many times people who have come to see me were too focused on trying to change other people or too worried about events from the past. They were unable to function in the present because of being stuck on yesterday. I use a reality based approach in counseling sessions that provide a foundation where you learn that the only behaviors that you will be able to control are your own. You learn to make choices that are beneficial to you as an individual. Things in the past have happened and must not control you in these present times.
I do know that clients can be a bit nervous when starting out with a new counselor, and clients might wonder if talking to me is worth their time and investment. Let me assure you that I am very aware of the seriousness of clients' concerns, and I am dedicated to committing myself to working with you to address workable solutions that will be a good fit for you. I am concerned about helping you to make better choices for yourself. If you will commit to talking to me, and listening as we work on the goals established in the sessions, I will be able to help you. We will begin by establishing some communication approaches that will help to break the ice. Afterwards, we will work together to help you be that great decision-maker who governs his or her own life. I am excited about the opportunity to lend an ear, a helping hand, and voice.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Coaching, Compassion fatigue

I've only had one call so far, but Walter's probably been one of the fastest / best fits in terms of style. He's direct and offers advice when needed. You feel like you're making tangible progress.
