Laura Bowman has been a counselor in Winter Park and Maitland since 2012. She attended Rollins College and majored in Psychology and Women’s Studies. At Rollins she focused on Developmental Psychology and Learning Theory. This area of focus led her to work in Applied Behavior Analysis and provide interventions for developmentally delayed children and their families. Through this work she became a case manager at Arnold Palmer Howard Phillips Center for the birth to three early intervention program. It was her work supporting families with difficult diagnoses which led her to return to graduate school to become a mental health counselor. She graduated from the Rollins Graduate Counseling program in 2008 and began running groups and seeing clients shortly thereafter. Her early work in behavioral interventions translated naturally to models of therapy such as CBT, ACT, CPT, and DBT. She became specialized in treating the full spectrum of anxiety disorders from OCD, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, and panic disorder. Over the last several years her approach to counseling has become more holistic and existential vs. diagnostic and procedural. Her journey to help people activate to higher levels of growth and change has led her to explore more experiential oriented therapies such as Internal Family Systems. She is interested in the overlap between mental and physical wellness and believes that they are inextricably connected. Through watching herself and her clients evolve she has learned that there are some very sacred portals for change available to us all. The change that comes from stillness, movement, loss, clarity of purpose, creativity, relationships, and turning toward what we most want to avoid can all be doorways to personal evolution. Laura lives in Winter Park with her husband and 3 children. She spends her free time running, reading, listening to podcasts, cooking, spending time with her good friends, family, and her dachshund Charlie.
