Melissa Bowman, LMFT

My goal as a therapist, is to help my clients find ways reduce, restructure, and remove the obstacles that cause pain; while building on our individual resources to promote health, happiness, and well-being. My style of therapy is interactive and collaborative in nature, focusing on the individual needs, style, and goals of my clients. I use a lot of humor in my practice; finding at times, that laughter is the best medicine!

One of my primary interests is in working with older adults through life transitions.  I have had the pleasure of working with older adults through various stages of life: looking for new employment, handling the changes that retirement brings, “sandwich” generation challenges, memory and health concerns, changing self-image, and death and dying.
