Mental Health Counselor
Kristen Howard is a licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate. She earned her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Liberty University and her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Washington State University. She completed her internship at two different locations: a local free clinic and a local church providing individual and marital counseling services to community members. During her time at these locations, Kristen worked with a wide range of clients from teens to elderly, each experiencing unique situations and possessing a deep desire to be heard. Kristen believes that her job is to come alongside each client and empower them towards self-discovery, personal growth and/or healing. Her therapeutic approach combines elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. She feels it is an honor and privilege to be allowed to sit with individuals during times of pain or struggle and provide non-judgmental support, guidance and respect to each unique situation.
