My role model

I go to 1:1 coaching with Ken and use his podcast as a supplement to reinforce the goals of therapy. It’s so important to fill our eyes and ears with positive values I share. When I’m completely lost, I always find something in his library that speaks directly to me. As a health care provider myself, I recommend his podcast to patients, providers, friends and family alike. Ken is topical, funny/quirky, experienced, structured, wise: one of my most admired mentors.... so needed in our community!!!

Great advice!

This is a great podcast for anyone wanting advice, a nudge in the right direction, or a way to put their gay life into perspective. I've been working with Ken for over a year and this podcast is a great listen whenever I want a pick me up, or hear his insight on issues that may not personally affect me, but the greater LGBTQ community. Worth a listen!!

Ken Howard rocks!

Ken Howard is a progressive, sex-positive therapist who cares passionately about gay men, and clearly has a wealth of knowledge about our lives and relationships from 30 years of private practice. Hearing him speak so articulately and with such perspective about our concerns is a validation, and his calm, soothing voice is a balm. Love the pod!
