About me

I am a licensed clinical marriage and family therapist in the state of Kansas with over 13 years of experience. I have worked with couples and individuals suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and childhood trauma, to name a few. I have provided EMDR therapy and trauma therapy exclusively in the past 2.5 years specializing in military populations.

My counseling style is experiential in that I work with the client toward healing and management of mental health concerns to improve one's overall health and well-being while maintaining a relationship with the client. My approach is informed by attachment theory and family systems and I use approaches that include Gottman theory, CBT, EMDR, trauma focused counseling and ACT. We get in the boat together and we paddle at your pace.

It takes a safe and caring relationship to foster change. I will share that relationship with you and together we will face the journey of self evolvement and overall health and wellness. If you are ready to start this journey, I am ready to get in the boat with you.

Let's begin!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Angela Howard. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

After losing my job due to a global pandemic, I was lost. A decade of grinding it out in kitchens across New York City came to an end., Angela and I started together, About 18 months ago. She helped me reignite my passion for the kitchen and helped me build the boundaries I need in my life to move forward. Angela helped me diagnose trauma that I had never dealt with for years past, reconnect with my sister and build a better relationship with my Wife. My personal and professional life have never been so in tune and I owe it to Angela. I highly recommend her. I just want to say thanks for everything.

Angela was very helpful during a low point in my life. She provided confidential counseling that was very beneficial and gave me the tools I needed to work through the problems I was having. I would highly recommend her and Better Health.

I am so beyond thankful for my month with you! It helped me learn to open up about the hard things, it encouraged me to be brave and seek more primary medical care, and I truly felt heard, valued, and cared about during our conversations! I was thankful for the messaging support and the willingness to make our video calls work however and wherever and whenever!

I have been seeing Angela for a couple months now and she has helped me on how to control and express my feelings instead of keeping it all to myself and in an egg shell I feel more open and I can express how I feel without lashing out to my boyfriend and other family and friends. Even with the short time we have had I feel 10x better than my first day.
