My name is Yashica Howell, a Licensed Social Worker licensed in Maryland. I received a Master’s in Social Work from the University of Maryland, Baltimore.

Most of my 20 plus year career has been spent working with youth and their families through programs that provide housing, government- based benefits and mental health services. As an experienced licensed practitioner for the last 5 years, I am highly skilled in providing Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to individuals (adults and children) experiencing trauma, mental health, dysregulating behaviors. I am also experienced in Family Therapy and Couples Therapy.

I pride myself on working from a collaborative, strengths-based approach; assisting and supporting clients to be the author of their own lives; while providing a warm, safe, and non-judgmental environment, which fosters a healthy therapeutic relationship. I work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, disruptive behaviors, relationship challenges, self-esteem, and trauma.

As your therapist, you will receive quality therapy through evidenced practices with culturally sensitivity perspectives. This will allow you to address your goals, decrease or eliminate negative symptoms, and strengthen your coping skills. Furthermore, throughout the therapeutic relationship, you will increase your self-awareness that will strengthen your power to navigate through future life stressors.

If you would like me to be your therapist, please contact Forward Therapeutic Center either by email: or by calling 202-946-1305 to request me, Yashica Howell, as your therapist. I look forward to working with you!
