The Journey To A Better You Starts HERE!

Welcome To The Heart Of The Matter Website with Licensed Therapist Bryant Howard, M.A LMFT.

Located in Sacramento, CA.


Try as we might, sometimes happiness and contentment always seem just out of reach. Depression, anxiety and stress can make getting out of bed in the morning a daunting task. Troubles in your relationship or conflict in the family can make you feel helpless or overwhelmed. You don’t like yourself and never feel good enough at work or around certain people. Maybe you just can’t quite put your finger on exactly what is wrong, you just know you don’t want to hurt anymore.

We want you to know that there is HOPE. Things can get better. Our goal is to get to the heart of the issue by giving you a safe place to share your feelings and struggles. Therapy will teach you effective tools to cope with extreme stress, depression and anxiety and how to communicate and problem solve in your relationships, and appreciate who you are and what life has to offer you. We believe that developing these coping skills is the key to living a successful life, and in turn will strengthen your self-esteem, relationships, marriage, parenting and everyday life!
