Stephanie Bowman (she/her) is a National Certified Counselor. She earned an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northwestern University. She is currently working to complete a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision at Adler University.

For about a decade, Stephanie was a civil litigator in Chicago, advocating for homeowners in foreclosure. She now sees herself as a mental health advocate and a fellow traveler with her counseling clients.
Stephanie's research interests include empathy and attunement in clinical work, peer mentoring, childhood trauma, and new technologies in counseling.
