About

Indira S. Johnson Howe

I am a Board Certified Chaplain through NAVAC (National Association of VA Chaplains). I am licensed and ordained as a Chaplain through the Pentecostal Church of God and ACPE. I have a Masters of Divinity and a Masters of Christian Counseling Marriage and Family Therapy from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK. and  a Bachelors of Science in Graphic Design from Florida A&M University.

 

Military Life:  I know and understand the life of the military family.  I have officially been working with veterans and their families since 2011. As a child raised in the military, I am aware of the stress and strain that frequent moving and deployment has on the family and the individual within the military.

PTSD: I have worked with survivors of PTSD since 1993. I started my career in chaplaincy before I really knew what chaplaincy was. I was  certified as a  Surgical Technologist in 1992 and worked at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, Florida when it first opened. I began ministering and counseling individuals and their family members that would come to the Trauma Center for various reasons and traumatic issues.  As a Psychosocial Behavioral Specialist I have worked with at-risk children and teens and their families to find solutions to behavioral issues that disrupt the home. As a Counselor, I have helped with issues of depression, anxiety, ADHD, low-self esteem, addictive behavior, crisis and various other issues.
