Dr. Thomas P Howell was court appointed to conduct a 730 evaluation report, and make recommendations to the court in 21 days. He too 9 months and had one excuse after the other as to why it was not getting done. He was in my home, and called my son a "little sh##" and then sat on the witness stand, under oath, and lied about it. He has a fantasmic affinity for drama and extruded and exaggerated scenarios. He plugs his own judgment in where he sees fit and has an ego the size of Texas. He is narcissistic and will spend a good portion of the time you are in his office, talking about himself and or on the phone to other clients and booking other business.

He has no children of his own. Do not trust him with any influence over what you are doing about your children. Find another evaluator. This PHD has had problems in the court, and any of the judges that have been there for more than a year will say that they have had problems with his testimonies. I have sat in other courtrooms and heard this with my own ears.

Don't believe me? Go ahead and engage this monster and then come back and read this warning again afterwards. This person will yell at you, he will interrupt you, he gets off track on his own line of questioning. To date, after 2 years, he still does not know my kids names. Beware!

Our sessions were becoming more and more bizarre, so much so that I audio recorded them all. Including when I confronted him about what he called my son. I have on recording his acknowledgement that he did call my son a "little sh##". Then he lied about it on the stand...... It's not so much that he called him the name, as it is that he lied to the courts about doing so. AND he cornered my son, 10 years old, and made him say that he did not call him. What kind of mother allows a big mean doctor to stand over your child and mess with their minds?

Dr. Howell conducted our 730 evaluation for custody of our children. His knowledge and expertise are invaluable. He is fair and truly kept the welfare of our children the focus and priority. He invested a great deal of time and energy to ensure the outcome was truly in the best interest of the children. He fully restored my faith in the justice system and I will always be grateful for the many positive ways he impacted my life. He is truly exceptional.

Dr. Howell was my Evaluator in my Child Custody Case. And although there were a few things in the report that I did not agree to that was said about me, I do have to say that he was fair and professional.
Going through a custody battle is exhausting, scary, overwhelming, and fear of the unknown. With all of those extreme feelings already going on and then having to explain who I am, what kind of parent I am, and the relationship I have to my child in itself, to a TOTAL STRANGER, is very uncomfortable. It is like having to prove who you are in order to win the battle. Dr. Howell made me feel completely comfortable speaking with him.
I went into the evaluation process promising myself to be COMPLETELY open and honest, and that is what I did. I am not a perfect parent; I dont believe a perfect parent exists. We all have made mistakes and will continue to make them and learn from them.
There were many times during our sessions that I would ramble or get nervous or feel anxious if asked a question or trying to explain a situation, yet he was very patient with me and when he would see how I would start feeling those emotions he would ask me the same question in a different way that wasnt so intimidating in my head or he would guide with a comment or question to guide me through my explanation of a situation that happened.
My point is that all in all, I would highly recommend Dr. Howell. He is extremely educated (uses different tactics to get the truth if the truth is unclear to him), he is highly experienced in his studies, he is knowledgeable, he is caring and his care is focused solely on the child. That is the reason we are there, for our child/children. And he was wonderful with mine. In fact my child really took to him.
Like I said before, I would highly recommend Dr. Howell to anyone that is going through a custody evaluation or even looking for a child therapist!

I started seeing Dr. Howell about 8 months ago for therapy to help with my symptoms of depression. He has helped me so much! He has a ton of experience in the area of therapy and has helped me to go from feeling hopeless to now having hope for my future. I would highly recommend him to anyone for therapy.

I was sent to Dr Howell as a result of not being able to communicate appropriately with my ex. Dr Howell helped us with co-parenting because we just couldn't get it together on our own. Our kids were already struggling with the fact that we were getting divorce and now with us not being able to agree on parenting! Dr. H helped us SOOOOO much!! He listened to both of us equally and gave us the time that we needed (even outside of scheduled sessions). Each of us went in their thinking that we were "right" and Dr H helped us see how all what we were doing was only further affecting our kids. Not sure how we would have made it through without his help.

I want to thank Dr Howell who worked with my ex-wife and I. He is a true expert in Family Law Cases, understanding the complexity of legal issues, the overtaxed court system, adversarial attorneys and a hostile ex-wife. His direct feedback was helpful and allowed me to grow as a parent, and to effectively co-parent with my hysterical and borderline ex-wife. Dr H. made several recommendations to the court on behalf of my children which protected them from damaging and long term affects of psychological abuse and alienation. I also want to thank him for his reduced fees and refusal to bill for phone calls and 3 way calls when we had emergency conflicts. My children also want to thank ( Dr. Silly : as they call him ) for making them feel very comfortable and secure.

This doctor conducted my custody evaluation. He is rude and very unprofessional. He is extremely disorganized and gets confused easily. He is not above yelling at you, particularly if you do not give him the answer he wants to hear. He will hound you to try to change your answers to his convenience. He sides with the preferred parent and blatantly ignore your testimony and that of other witnesses to give the results he thinks the courts want. He is not impartial nor objective and has a severe God complex. He manipulates the truth at his convenience and is not above lying. Lawyers out there do your clients a huge favor and do not use this guy. He is terrible and will endanger your kids!!! DO NOT USE HIM!!!
