About Benjamin Howard, LPC

We all have needs. Sometimes they’re big, complicated needs like a feeling of belonging or sense of purpose. Sometimes needs are more basic like getting enough sleep or feeling safe where we live. Whenever we don’t get a need met, that creates unfinished business - needs that linger around. Too much unfinished business and we become fragmented, unable to effectively deal with our present because we’re so consumed about past needs or too worried about future ones. Using a foundation based on a combination of Gestalt Therapy, Mindfulness-Based CBT, and Feminist Therapy, I help people define and address their needs.

Specialties include stress management, trauma, anxiety & depression, career counseling, consensual nonmonogamy and sex counseling. I hold an MA in Counseling & Guidance from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and completed additional trauma training with the International Association of Trauma Professionals and the Arizona Trauma Institute.

I believe therapy is a team effort - you the client are the best expert on you. I'd like to partner with you and your expertise to support and improve your wellness. Together, we can make things better.
