Professional statement

Dr. Tyler Howard provides psychotherapy to individuals and couples who struggle with difficulties related to gender and sexual identity, unresolved childhood trauma and abuse, historical and societal trauma, oppression, power and privilege, chronic stress, anxiety/panic, emotional overwhelm, obsessive and compulsive behaviors, recurring relationship conflict, depression, problems with intimacy, lack of focus and motivation, major life transitions, grief and loss.

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.


Message to clients

Asking for help can be a major hurdle to overcome. You may even become discouraged with the sometimes tedious, complicated, and vulnerable process of finding the "right" therapist. I hope to ease your frustration by first applauding you in making this step. I want to assure you that you have already made a beginning.

I hope to soften your introduction or re-introduction to therapy and welcome you to book an appointment. Finding connection to a therapist ought to feel organic and meaningful to you. I can speak from personal experience that this not only requires safety and receptivity in the therapist, but also willingness and openness in the patient. If for any reason we feel you may be better suited for a different type of therapist, I will provide you with thoughtful recommendations and assist you in moving closer to the help you need. I would be honored to work in trusted and committed collaboration with you, to help you better understand your current problems, and discover meaningful potential in your life moving forward.
