Bowen Marshall, MA, LPC (he/him/his) "We see the world, not as it is, but as we are.”- Stephen Covery. Bowen is a cisgender, queer, biracial man. He believes that everybody has an innate ability to move towards growth, healing, and fulfillment. He sees the therapeutic relationship as a collaboration that honors each person’s experiences, stories, and identities. Bowen approaches therapy from a perspective of learning and believes that the more we learn about ourselves the better able we are to make choices about how we want to move through life.
Bowen uses an integrative framework to address each person’s needs drawing from Cognitive Behavioral, Acceptance and Commitment, and Humanistic therapeutic orientations. He has experience treating a range of concerns including but not limited to depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, and grief.
Much of his career has been in education focused on social justice, anti-oppression, and anti-bias work, career development, wellness, culture building, and student development; and he brings these experiences to his clinical work. He worked in Student Life at the Ohio State University for 8 years in a variety of student development roles focused on supporting people who are queer or questioning and people of color. Most recently he served as the Executive Director for Teaching and Coaching at a philanthropic consulting firm.
Bowen earned his Masters in Counseling from the Ohio State University and a Bachelor’s degree in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Kansas. He holds a Ph.D. in Higher Education and Student Affairs from the Ohio State University where his research focused on understanding the anti-oppressive work and experiences of LGBTQ+ advocates on college campuses.
