Dr. Fowler was drawn to the counseling field due to his early experience as a student with undiagnosed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Told he would never succeed, he developed outside-the-box problem-solving skills that he likes to share with clients who feel trapped due to the issues with which they struggle. His counseling style is directive, encouraging and practical.
For over 30 years, he has served as a licensed counselor, university professor of psychology and sociology, athletic director and head basketball coach. Dr. Fowler is currently a member of the graduate faculty of counseling at Dallas Baptist University and has had the opportunity to speak at national conferences and seminars across the United States and around the world, while also providing consultation services to a number of professional athletes.
Author of 11 books, Dr. Fowler has been a featured guest on Focus on the Family and The 700 Club. Married 47 years, he and his wife, Jeri, have two children and eight grandchildren.
