Kirsten Miley Howell, Psychologist in San Francisco
Respect, safety, and genuineness are the essentials of a good therapeutic relationship and the basis of my practice. I provide a warm environment that includes listening and support but also is direct and potentially challenging at times to help you reach your goals and find greater emotional well-being. By exploring your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in this non judgmental environment, together we can increase your self awareness, solve repetitive problems, find new ways of handling relationships, and develop tools to help you navigate through life’s challenges.
I provide personalized care, drawing from a wide range of techniques and interventions that will best meet your needs and help you overcome those self-defeating habits and beliefs that are keeping you from having a more authentic life.

Finding a good match with a therapist and establishing a therapeutic rapport are important factors for successful therapeutic outcomes. I offer a free 30-minute phone consultation so I can address any of your specific concerns, needs, and goals for therapy.
