Ryan Bowers PhD, LPC, NCC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania who primarily focuses on working with individuals, couples, and families who desire change.  Working in a collaborative effort with clients on Mood Disorder issues, LGBTQIA issues, Adjustment Issues, Substance Abuse Issues, and Educational/Career Issues is the cornerstone of my training.  When I am not working with clients, I can be found teaching at Immaculata University, where I am an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Department of Psychology and Counseling.  Most of my free time is spent with his partner, Beth, and my two cats, Annie Oakley and Bruce Wayne, when I’m not on working on research projects or presenting at professional conferences.
