I have been seeing Clair on and off for 5 years. We started out stein with no-monthly working through some depression. She is clearly more than just any old therapist. She gets to the root of The problem and Her methods involving EMDR allow you as the patient to resolve your issues. She listens attentively, And doesn’t do all the talking nor do you but has an open dialogue at all times. She is kind and to the point where necessary. I couldn’t ask for a better person to handle issues in my life.

Linda – Feb 04, 2018
I have had amazing healing from major depression, debilitating anxiety and the belief that I was responsible for my loved ones welfare and if something went wrong I wouldn't be able to forgive myself for not being there for them. Through all the years, since childhood and now I am healed of all of these disorders. Dr. Howard expertise, guidance and therapy sessions including EMDR I give the credit to my progress. I have seen many therapist through the years without relief. Dr. Howard is 5 stars
