Dr. Howard draws on her knowledge and experience with psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theories, cognitive-behavioral interventions, spirituality and mind/body science within an integrative and interpersonal treatment approach. She dedicates herself to ongoing training and research, and builds upon her knowledge of systems of oppression, and her competencies to support people in social healing and change.
Dr. Howard typically meets patients in her private practice office located in Atwater Village, however, since Stay-At-Home orders went into effect March 2020, she has provided only tele-health sessions via secure video-platform and telephone. Dr. Howard will become available again for face-to-face sessions when state and county restrictions are lifted, along with added safety measures in place. She is competent in assisting patients with the transition to virtual sessions. She will help you work through any limitations and maximize the unique advantages of conducting sessions remotely.
