Adriane Howard, LICSW, PIP, AADC

Seeking guidance for your life can be difficult, I understand how hard it can be to reach out for help. I believe that self improvement and a life of joy and hope are possible for all people, no matter their struggles. I provide psychotherapy to help my clients identify problem areas in their lives that they want to overcome, set small goals to achieve their desired outcome, and help them make connections between how events in their past are driving their emotions, thoughts, and decisions today.

I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Strengths Based- Solutions Focused Therapy to tailor therapy sessions to my clients’ needs. In addition to counseling for depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, relationship difficulties, and issues surrounding poor self-esteem and self-worth, I am also a certified addictions counselor. I have a passion for those suffering from addiction. Addiction is a scary and all-consuming struggle, but I believe recovery is possible.

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I began serving in the field of social work in 2006 after graduating from Auburn University with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. I received a Master’s degree in Social Work in 2015 from The University of Alabama. I have worked with a variety of populations, to include children, adults, and seniors. I have worked with those suffering from serious mental illnesses and substance use disorders of various kinds. I look forward to working with you and I would be honored to be a part of your journey.
