Brent & Lucy Howell
Brent & Lucy are married and in a blended family, with five wonderful children. In being a part of Tampa Family Resources, their heartfelt desire is to provide couples and families with the proper resources and skills to succeed in marriage and family relationships. A unique element that Brent and Lucy offer is couple-to-couple counseling. Couples find this dynamic in counseling to be very beneficial, as they are able to receive both the male and female perspective in their specific areas of need. In addition to counseling, Brent & Lucy also lead and facilitate the small group curriculum of “Your Blended Family” to countless families in the Tampa Bay area. Both are members of the American Association of Christian Counselors and Board Certified Biblical Counselors.
