Episode 40 - Ken Howard Interview: Better Relationships

Some people you meet and they change your life with an impact that lasts forever.  Ken Howard is one of those people for me.  Ken is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). He has been in private practice since 2009 following five years of experience at Healthy Families Counseling and Support working with couples to help them gain skills and tools necessary to achieve strong attachment bonds with each other. Ken also has two years at Willowbrook working with kids that have severe behavioral and mental health diagnosis.

Ken completed his bachelor’s degree through Mid America Nazarene University in Olathe, KS and his Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Friends University in Kansas City. Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)is a lens that Ken prefers to look through when doing couples work as he believes that EFT attends to the secure attachment bond that all important relationships must develop, and he is working on his certification in EFT.  Ken has been trained in EFT, EMDR (a treatment protocal for trauma),  the Gottman curriculum, and is a CSAT (Certified Sexual Addictions Therapist) Candidate.  Married 9 years with 2 children, his faith, family, and friends are the bedrock of who he is and what he is passionate about.

I have been friends with Ken for over 20 years and he is as brilliant a person as he is a therapist and coach.  In this interview we cover some powerful topics such as... 

-Healing your wounds

-Combat vs Communicate 

-Lenses we wear and how that dramatically effects the quality of our relationships

-Neuroscience that is accessible

-The power of latent learning

-How to navigate high-tension, emotionally charged conversations with people we love

-More greatest techniques to become self-aware and have a better relationship with yourself
