Tiffany Howard

(MS, LPC)

About Me

Welcome! My name is Tiffany Howard and I have been in the counseling profession for over 18 years. I have a Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology, was licensed in Maryland in both addictions and mental health and am now a Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina. I have worked with both adolescent and adult clients (and their family members) experiencing difficulties with both substance abuse as well as other addictive issues and mental health complications. I have had extensive training in the treatment of trauma issues and have experience in crisis management. The treatment theories that I work with most often are CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) and mindfulness techniques. I am a member of the North Carolina Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science.

It takes great courage to learn more about yourself and to make changes to those things that may not be serving you well. I believe that everyone has the opportunity for positive change in their life if given the right tools and I truly enjoy working with people to make those changes. The right counseling relationship is a positive growth experience for both of us, because only YOU are the expert on you. My goal is to act as a guide as you discover the strength that is already inside of you, waiting to be uncovered! I can provide you a welcoming, respectful and safe place to work towards your goals and I look forward to the opportunity of walking forward with you.

Written by C.I. on Jul 01, 2019 after counseling with Tiffany for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, anger management, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Tiffany is wonderful! I haven't clicked with a counselor like this in - well ever! She is terrific and always gets back to me quickly. She listens and offers not only a different perspective or advice but actionable things for me to do to help me achieve change. If it were a star system, I would give her 5 stars hands-down!

Written by W.A. on Sep 07, 2018 after counseling with Tiffany for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

Been working with Tiffany for a couple weeks, and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with her. I’ve reached out after a rough break up but my goal was to also understand my insecurities and address them. Tiffany gets that and is working with me. She’s a great listener and extremely good at easing into tough conversations. I thought our first live session would be a bit awkward but she managed to make it extremely enjoyable and not at all awkward or too formal. Thank you Tiffany!

She has already made my life so much more peaceful. She's a gift to BetterHelp and the world.

Tiffany Howard is absolutely amazing. I haven't been doing this to long but I already feel like mountains have been moved. I do believe she goes above and beyond to help her patients out. She also explains things very well. I do not plan on changing consultant ever. Thank you for all you have done so far and all you will be doing in the future.

I think Tiffany is doing a great job. She is proving to be the sounding board that I need to work through my issues. I was reluctant at first to believe that working with her would actually help but I'm definitely making progress. Tiffany takes the time to check in with me if I have not made contact and I feel like she really is concerned with helping people. I would recommend working with her to anyone needing a counselor.

He knows what he's doing and so I must keep the faith and believe in myself and my journey. I have so much to look forward to in my life, and I will continue to find my inner strength in difficult situations. I appreciate your guidance Tiffany and thanks for being a listening ear.

Written by K.O on Jul 20, 2015 after counseling with Tiffany for 10 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and depression

Tiffany is very supportive, and is someone you can count on to brighten up your day. Some days you just cannot see through the cloud and mist. You lose sight of what is really important. And she'll be there to let you know you are not alone, and remind you of what's most important.

Written by K.R on Jun 02, 2015 after counseling with Tiffany for 1 month

Tiffany Howard has been a tremendous help to me. When I initially counseled with her I was an emotional wreck and my life situations weren't any better. In talking back and forth with her for several weeks she has shown me ways of coping with my situations. She is very professional but shows so much empathy and understanding of the various problems I am dealing with. I love the online approach to counseling. I can talk to her anytime of the day or night. I don't have to worry about her knowing my friends or feeling uncomfortable about running into her in the grocery store. I can speak more freely with this type of "anonymous" relationship. Thank you Tiffany!!

Tiffany is the best. She is not only professional but is your best friend as well. She always has a positive way to look at anything you say, and her kindness is so welcoming. She takes her time to read your messages individually,and answer accordingly. She is not just a quick read therapist with a copy and paste answer. So happy I found her:)!

She's a great counselor and really listens to what you have to say and considers the best possible way to help you. She checks to make sure you're okay if you haven't talked in a while and she genuinely cares, which is something I appreciate so much. She's amazing.

Written by M.A on Dec 29, 2014 after counseling with Tiffany for 5 months on issues concerning family

I've had the opportunity to work with a couple of different BetterHelp therapists.

Thank you, Tiffany for all you've done for me!

Tiffany is very warm, supportive and thoughtful. She follows up on you, checking in when she hasn't heard from you in a while. She is also very responsive, when engaged in more frequent dialogue. She will research information to be helpful, and provide helpful perspective. She is trained to do cognitive-behavioral interventions to develop more healthy thought patterns and behaviors. I highly recommend her.

Tiffany is a competent professional, of course, but she is quite compassionate and thoughtful.

I've never been in counseling before and had mixed feelings when I began, but Tiffany has eased my anxiety and I am looking forward to learning and growing with her guidance.
