Professional Statement

Thank you for choosing Dr. Brett Howard's practice.

Failing to perform well in the roles that are important to you can really mess with your head. You might think that you don't need a therapist... what you NEED is a promotion, an obedient child, respect at work, or better grades. Whether you suffer from depression, anxiety, substance abuse or attention deficits, much of the pain you experience may come from a decline in your ability to be the parent, student, partner or professional you want to be. My practice specializes in helping those individuals who are not performing at their best at school or work.

If your performance is suffering, now might not be the best time to dive into your past to find "root causes." I have a coaching therapeutic style that is results-oriented. I love the science behind this work and feel that it's important that you understand it too.

I am a consulting psychologist and a DC licensed psychiatric nurse practitioner (NP) who integrates medications with coaching and psychotherapy to address the mental health and performance management needs of young and emerging adults (ages 20-40). I have special interest in the treatment of veterans, ADHD, depression and anxiety.
