Get To Know Advantage

Meet Alex

Hi there, I’m Alex Howard. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor and certified Sexual Addiction Treatment Provider in Overland Park, Kansas. I practice from a core belief that we are formed, broken, and healed in relationship. I have come to this belief partially based on my own life difficulties and how caring connection and understanding from different people in my life was the vehicle that moved me to better places internally and externally.

I bit about my personal life: I am married and have a son and in my free time I enjoy playing pickleball, having game nights, and reading.

I recognize that my personality and skill set will not be the best fit for every person and difficulty. You are unique and are worthy of having someone you feel is the right person to hold your story. With that said, I would be happy to have a free 15-minute phone consultation with you to hear a bit about what has led you to pursue counseling, for me to offer some of my experience and my approach to working with those issues, and then determine together what next steps are. I am looking forward to connecting with you!

Meet Alex

For some clients, knowing my spiritual framework is an important part of deciding whether I am the right fit. My relationship with Jesus is very important to me and is the primary reason I find satisfaction in utilizing the skills and abilities he has given me to serve my clients. Some clients believe in Jesus and some do not, but all are welcome just the same. I let my clients determine how much faith they would like integrated into my work with them.

Get in touch with me

Hi I’m Alex Howard. I am a licensed professional counselor in Overland Park, KS with a MA in counseling. I am currently working on my certification to be a sexual addiction treatment provider from MidAmerica Nazarene University. It was my own life difficulties and the people who supported me through them that led me to the counseling profession. Most often, significant progress in overcoming those difficulties happened when I had someone to walk side by side with through the hard times.

A bit about my personal life- I am married to my beautiful wife Katie. In my free time I enjoy playing disc golf, fishing, and playing slow pitch softball.

Mission In Practice

It is our hope that the relationship built in therapy is one where all parts of  your experience including thoughts, feelings, motivations, desires , and behaviors are open for discussion and exploration without judgement. Oftentimes, these parts of ourselves are tucked away for good reasons due to some non-ideal circumstances in your story. You need these parts of your experience to be responded to in curious, caring, and empathic ways so that you can feel a greater aliveness within yourself and intimacy with the people you love. We would be honored to create that kind of a space for you.

Mission In Practice

Regardless of how well or not well your parents raised you, whether harder experiences or less difficult experiences. All these little things, without being processed and talked about can lead to patterns in our lives of relating to ourselves and others.

Being able to notice, feel, and tolerate emotions is what a counselor helps you do. Because you’re with someone rather than being by yourself. When you hold that weight in front of someone and have them hold it too, it becomes a lot more bearable.

Vision For Clients

We want to assist our clients to get out of simply doing their lives and actually begin feeling their lives. Too often we all fall into an autopilot way of being that is separate from our deepest longings, intentions, and desires for how we want to live this life. We hope our clients feel deeply, love deeply, and get the privilege to look back on their own lives and say "well done". 

Vision For Clients

We weren’t meant to go through this life without meaningful, healthy, and life-giving relationships. I believe you have the capability to get from where you are to where you want to be. It's just about unlocking that potential to reach the hopes and dreams you have for your marriage, your family, and your own life.

You have the capacity to heal and to get unstuck. We’ll walk with you, so together we can move you to fully experience your life and relationships.

Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me. I look forward to getting the chance to hear from you to determine if we are the right fit for each other.
