Our Mission

HeadCheck uses the best tools in psychology to promote mental health awareness, prevention, wellness, and empowerment. We believe the world would be a better place if everyone took care of their mind, and that starts with knowing how you measure up. Abolishing mental health stigma is an idea that is long overdue, so we’re doing our part. How about you?

Who We Are

RH19cRyan Howes, Ph.D., ABPP: I’ve always wanted to bring psychological health to the masses. After starting a peer counseling program in my Oregon high school and working with youth during college, my psychological studies brought me to Pasadena where I earned a degree, opened a practice, became board certified, and have served the community for over 20 years. My quest to spread the word about mental health has resulted in a blog for Psychology Today, a column in the Psychotherapy Networker Magazine, teaching at Fuller Graduate School of Psychology, and founding National Psychotherapy Day. HeadCheck is perhaps the best way to serve a large number of people in my own community, the San Gabriel Valley. My wife and I want to raise our two kids in a healthy environment, after all, so let’s make Pasadena the mental-healthiest place in the world! If you have any questions please drop me a line at Ryan@ryanhowes.net.
