Joel Howard, Master Level Intern

Do you feel like you're somehow missing it? Do you find yourself in a rut not knowing how to live the life you want to live? Life can be burdensome and confusing. There is hope of something more. One of my favorite quotes goes something like this: realizing where you are is meant to give you hope of where you get to go, not shame of where you are. There is hope in healing. Whether you struggle from trauma, depression, anxiety, or something you don't know how to put a name on, there is hope for you.


I specialize in many different environments, however I have specific areas of expertise. I have expertise with adolescence and adults working through different issues such as trauma, identity, self-image, eating disorders, and men’s issues. I am passionate about walking alongside individuals and helping them through their hardships and bringing them towards a point of healing. I seek to function from a psychodynamic therapeutic modality. Simply put, I counsel in a way to seek to understand what's underneath and to help you connect the dots and work towards redemption.


My aim as a counselor is for you to find out the person you were created to become. I see counseling as a sacred space. I hope that when you're ready to begin therapy we can schedule a call for a free consultation. There can be hope for healing.
