Rosalyn Bowie

Rosalyn Bowie, LPC-I, M.A. in Professional Counseling

Hi, I’m Rosalyn, I have traveled and lived abroad with the Peace Corp. I earned my M.A. in Marraige and Family counseling from D.B.U. I specialize in trauma related concerns. As your therapist, my desire is to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment. This allows you the opportunity to cope with the effects of trauma and past events in your life, and a place to grieve your hurts and losses. I believe counseling involves an equal, cooperative relationship based on trust and respect. This relationship values you as a person and encourages you to identify your strengths so that you may make desired changes that will lead to a more productive life. I will invite you to set personal goals and we will work together to achieve those goals. You are a unique individual and have the capacity to shape your own life and make desired changes and choices.

Andria Booles

Marriage & Family Counseling Intern

I’m Andria. I have been married for 21 years, have four children, and two grandchildren. My passion for healing started when I began to advocate and seek help for my own family. I learned that addressing each member in the family system may look different depending on their specific needs. Finding a safe and healthy place to communicate and assigning language to what is happening brings connection and understanding in a deeper way. I am completing my degree with a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy at The King’s University. I received my undergraduate in Psychology at Le Tourneau University in 2010. Since then, I have been certified at the Think Differently Academy, Prepare/Enrich, Gottman, and Enneagram trained. I take a well-rounded approach and believe there are several ways to find and walk in freedom. I am passionate about restoring the Mind, Body, Soul, Spirit, Heart, and Will as they integrate and function together through the process of relationship and discovering identity. I love to work with all ages with varying degrees of struggle. I believe in the value of networking with other specialists if needed and will continue to walk alongside you to help you find your voice along the way.

Lydia Vinar

M.M.F.T., LPC-Associate

My name is Lydia and it’s my heart to combine research-based therapy with the freedom I believe is only offered through Jesus. I’m an LPC Associate (almost) supervised by (Dr. Cassie Reid). I hold my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Campbellsville University and my Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies and Religion from Samford University.

I work with young women, whether in high school or in their mid-twenties, towards wholeheartedness and a life of freedom from self-hatred and disconnection. I desire to collaborate with my clients from a place of genuine connection with each other and the Holy Spirit as we build trust, identify and rebuild healthy core beliefs, process with self-compassion, and learn to cultivate the internal resources every individual carries. I specialize in identity formation and self-worth; core beliefs and attachment; body image and eating disorders; emotional/mood regulation; life transitions; familial, friend, and romantic relationships; and self-harm. I believe that we were made to live abundant lives that we thrive in and enjoy!

Dr. Crawford with your busy schedule and the heavy demand on your time, what motivates you?

“I see great value in each person before me, each person’s genome is a perfect composition of greatness that is completely unique and perfectly designed to fulfill their purpose. I desire to serve the destinies of others by using the insights, wisdom, strategy, and gifts, as a maximizer, and enthusiastic life-long learner, to help identify and remove blocks that have hindered and sabotaged, in order to help equip and propel each person into their destiny! For those who have been given much, much is required and accordingly, it is my consuming passion to disperse practical strategies and keys to empower emerging leaders to be liberated from self-sabotage, glass-ceilings, and small thinking. World changers rarely see themselves as such, and yet the world is yearning for the change each person is designed to release.”
