Nancy Howard

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

I am passionate about working with those who want to become their best self through therapy and counseling. I strongly believe that anyone can change their life for the better if they are willing to explore themselves further and find out what they are truly capable of. We will learn together throughout this experience, and I promise to provide respect, be a sounding board, and a thought companion during our journey. You are important, you matter to me, and I want you to be as successful as you possibly can be. My methods utilized in our sessions will be influenced specifically by your needs, desires, and concerns. The modalities we employ will always have the larger goal in mind, and will hopefully get us closer and closer to that goal. Progress takes work and patience, but together I believe that we can get there.

Nancy is awesome! After 1 session, I see things in a completely different light.

Nancy is so amazing, she actually cares about me and my problems and offers wonderful solutions. I’m not sure what I would do without her.

Nancy was actually not my first counselor on BetterHelp. The first counselor I matched with was certainly qualified and well-meaning, but not a good fit for me. My first counselor would respond to the things I told her with a short statement (not a question) that had mystical leanings. It felt awkward and I wasn't always sure how to respond.

I am a practical person. If you are like me, Nancy is the counselor for you. She listens carefully to what you share with her, summarizes what you've said to make sure she is understanding correctly, and then asks you a question that is related to what you have shared. In answering that question, you realize something about yourself that you did not see before and it leads you to share something else that is related to the conversation. Nancy is also practical, which is one of my favorite things about her because, for me, it keeps the sessions grounded and relevant. She responds in a timely manner and is extremely flexible in allowing me to select the flow of our live sessions. Overall, Nancy is professional, practical, and perceptive--exactly what I am looking for in a counselor.

Nancy is so great! She reaches out to see how I'm doing and has helped me with my anxiety! This has been the greatest thing I've done in my life; reaching out to get counseling has been of great help and Nancy is the best. She listens and gives me great advise! Love it

I recently have begun live sessions with Nancy. In the past I have never been able to stick with counseling. Doing counseling through online live sessions and Nancy’s expertise is working on whole new levels for me. I am truly appreciative of everything that we have talked about and the way in which she approaches it. Highly recommend. Thank you :)

Nancy is a true professional therapist. She is an outstanding listener and asks important insightful questions. Nancy has been instrumental in helping me create movement in my recovery from addiction (sex, alcohol and food). My relationship with myself continues to improve, which is positively affecting others important areas such as my marriage, career and finances. Nancy is fantastic!

Nancy is the first counselor I have ever spoken with and, I'm very glad I did! My focus and direction during our sessions has changed often and she has always been patient and understanding. Never once have I felt uncomfortable sharing my issues and concerns with her. If you are fortunate enough to get Nancy as your counselor you will have a skilled professional to guide you down the path of self improvement. Thanks, Nancy!

I started off with another counselor but we weren't a good fit at all. Soooo glad I switched to Nancy instead of just quitting. Within the first week I have been able to see things in a totally different light. She has been a tremendous help.

Ms. Howard is helping me through so much. I'm able to process my feelings in positive ways, understand forgiveness and what it really involves. I feel like my life is getting back on track with her assistance.

Written by C.A. on Jan 07, 2019 after counseling with Nancy for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

Nancy is extremely compassionate and professional. During a really difficult time in my life, she helped me explore the concept of boundaries and how to establish them. It resulted in a real breakthrough for me. She has gently encouraged me to focus on patterns in my life that might explain or contribute to self-defeating behavior and offered many practical suggestions for coping with challenges in my life.
