Hello! I am Jessie Howard and I am a licensed professional counselor serving children, adolescents, and adults in and around Southern Delaware. Over my years as a therapist, I have worked with children, adolescents and adults who have struggled with living and coping with many different mental health disorders and life experiences, some of which include anxiety, PTSD, self esteem issues, patterns of self-harm, adoption, divorce, anger management issues, various traumatic experiences, and peer, family, and relationship conflicts. Some days, I am also joined in office by my English Mastiff, Sully!
My on-going training, knowledge and experience with patients has given me a wealth of resources and tools to use in helping people to cope with and overcome life challenges and tragedies. I have a passion for treating trauma and am proud to be one of the few therapists in the area who are nationally certified in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy.
My counseling style is warm, collaborative, and not without a sense of humor. Through a therapeutic connection, I can guide you to use new tools to tackle your issues head on. My approach combines various counseling theories and techniques to best meet your needs. I feel proud and privileged to do what I do and I look forward to taking this journey with you!
