Shamara Howze Licensed Professional Counselor Play Therapist

Looking to take the first step in your journey towards healing? At Howze Your Health, we understand that reaching out for support can feel both empowering and nerve-wracking. In your consultation call, you can expect a warm welcome while we explore your needs, clarify expectations, verify out of network benefits and determine your co-insurance amount, and ultimately see if we are a good fit for your service needs. 


At Howze Your Health,  we prioritize your well-being without the hassle of insurance. While I operate as an out-of-network provider, rest assured that our approach is 'insurance friendly'. Through our partnership with Thrizer, we streamline the out-of-network process for you seamlessly.


Our priority is to provide you with quality client care, listen attentively, answer any questions you may have, and provide information about our services and how we can support you on your journey to better health and well-being. If you’re ready, click the link below!
