Hello and Welcome! I am so glad that you took the time to come see what I have to offer you so that we can start your healing journey! I am Katrina Howard and I am a Licensed Clinical Independent Social Worker in the states of Florida and South Carolina. I have more than 12 years in the mental health field and I have a Masters Degree in Social Work and graduated with the highest honors from Florida State University. I have a passion to help individuals and families work through their problems/issues so they can decrease their stress levels and continue to be successful citizens within the community. I am currently a Suicide Prevention Social Worker and I work heavily in crisis management.
I have worked within a variety of settings, both inpatient and outpatient and I have experience with adults, adolescents, children and families. My specialty is in crisis management, treating depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, couple's therapy and adjustment disorders. My treatment approach is eclectic because I feel the mind, body & soul should be healed in order for a person to feel better because they are all connected. I use a variety of treatment practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and Strengths Based Therapy.
I know that online therapy is fairly new and it can be scary to share your most inner deepest, darkest moments with someone you don't know. I just want you to know that I am a laid back therapist who meets her clients where they are and I tailor treatment based on my clients needs. So if you are ready to release the stress and start on the journey to feeling better, then I am ready and here to talk with you!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

So far, Katrina has been everything I have expected from this platform.
She's very caring and I feel like I can I can be completely myself to her there is no judgment because that's how counseling should be and the only way I'm going to get better if I is if I can be me 100% And I already feel like I have made huge Leaps and Bounds in the last 3 months
I'm starting to feel like a different person
She is a great therapist!
I don’t feel I need counseling. I simply believe I need a third party objective person who can help me through different things. I live a very busy life and my time is the most important thing I have. Ms. Howard understands that and helps me through my issues. This app is great because it allows me to schedule my time for counseling when I have the time.
Talks like a friend. So helpful and checks up all the time.
For about a year I was considering therapy, but my work schedule made it difficult to arrange. I was extremely excited when I was matched with Katrina. The matching process worked perfectly for me. She has really allowed me to open up and I honestly had no idea how much her messages of encouragement would make me feel supported. It's only been a few weeks and I already find myself thinking, "I should tell Katrina about this." I hope she doesn't get tired of all the messages I am going to send her now that I am getting comfortable with the platform and the app! I am really looking forward to growing with her help.
Ms Katrina is awesome. She makes sure that you are ok before ending any session. She checks on you when you least expect it.
Ms. Howard has been very helpful in getting me through my issues. She has provided material and guidance on how to manage my issues.
My counselor is wonderful and is there for me when I need her. She has helped me so much in just the 2 weeks I have been with her. I have been able to go to work for a full week for the first time in over 2 years.
