Dr. Howard is a Texas native and Baylor graduate. After many years of working with at-risk and adjudicated youth, she began her transition to specialize in trauma and eating disorders. Seeing that there were no facilities that specialized in trauma treatment, Dr. Howard created Innova Recovery as a place where people can heal from the wounds of their past. She is passionate about specialized care, ensuring that each and every client is matched with someone trained in their area of need.
She has written a book, Strength for the Journey, that has helped countless people find freedom from their shame, anxiety, and depression. Dr. Howard served as President of the Bexar County Psychological Association. She has also taught at Trinity University and was a regular contributor for MD Monthly magazine. She is a leader and expert in the field of trauma.
Having been a military spouse, Dr. Howard has a special heart for those who have served our country. She has also created a non-profit, the 42nd Warrior Battalion, that aims to end child abuse through education.
In her free time, she enjoys running, traveling, DIY projects, and exploring the world with her husband, son, and 3 legged-dog, Lucy.
