About Me

I have been providing counseling in various settings for over 20 years, with 12 years as a licensed professional (LCSW). I am currently pursuing a doctorate in biblical counseling. I have been a follower of Christ for 25 years. I am currently pursuing a doctorate in biblical counseling. Anything that ails us is discussed in the word. You and I need to discover what God says in relation to how you are feeling. I am counselor who provides services in the state of GA. I have worked closely with Veterans, people suffering from adjustment disorder, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, empty nesters and other persons who are experiencing loss or grief or relationship problems.
My style of counseling includes cognitive behavioral therapy; helping you to improve your mental focus by thinking and developing coping mechanisms to overcome the issues that are concerning you. My approach utilizes motivational interviewing. I want to point out the incongruence in the what you say versus what you do; so we can begin to realign your thoughts with positive actions.
My help in whatever area you are struggling with is just an email, video session or phone call away. What are you waiting for; lets let go and let God assist us in helping you be what He made you to be.

Vanessa Bowen is a great counselor, and she understands me and what I go through in my life. She has been given wonderful advice, and she listens to my life issues. She is a great person to talk too.

Vanessa has a way of clearly articulating what I haven’t yet recognized or been able to think through. She has been very helpful in a mere few weeks. Grateful to God for her counsel.

I’ve had some negative experiences with therapists in the past, so starting over yet again was terrifying. Even though I haven’t been talking with Vanessa for long at all, I can tell that she is so compassionate and cares about her clients. I love knowing my counselor is Christian because that’s a huge part of my life. I feel a little more confident that I can finally heal this time, and I’m excited to see what this journey brings!

Vanessa is understanding and asks good questions that make me think in a different way. She relates as a fellow believer and not just a counselor. But she also offers her expertise which I really need at this time. I would recommend her to anyone wanting a wise Christian sister's perspective.
