Brett Howard, PhD, NP – Founder

Dr. Howard is the Reboot Behavioral Science founder and mental health clinician. His background includes work in human capital, research psychology, organizational consulting, and military intelligence. During a deployment to Iraq, Brett discovered that analysis and research alone wouldn’t cut it for him, and so he returned to the US to enter the healthcare field. Brett has learned that resilience is found among those that learn continuously, discover their unique value, and evaluate their own performance as members of a larger community.


Brett comes from a family of entrepreneurs, inventors and small business owners. He uses Lean and Agile development principles in the creation of mobile applications in addition to his coaching and founder development practice. He has first-hand knowledge about the power contained within the entrepreneurial spirit and considers the passion, vision, and continuous discovery of the successful StartUp to be representative of a healthy mind and a resilient & fulfilling career.

As of August 1, 2018 Dr. Howard will be on sabbatical with his family in Tokyo, Japan for 3 years. His colleague, Daniel Lyons, PMHNP-BC will be taking over existing patients and accepting new patients as an independent provider at the Reboot Behavioral Science office in downtown Washington, DC.

Daniel Lyons, PHMNP-BC

Daniel Lyons is a native Washingtonian who attended Gonzaga College High School (‘03) and Georgetown University (‘07, ‘12).  Daniel received an MSN in Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) from Drexel University (‘18) and is Board Certified to provide psychiatric care to children, adolescents, and adults.

Nothing gives Daniel Lyons more pleasure than having a career he is passionate about. When he first met Brett, he was impressed with the time and care he took working with patients and developing individualized treatment plans. Like Brett, Daniel has come to respect the benefits of an integrative approach to major mental health concerns such as ADHD and performance related issues. When Daniel was offered  a position as an independent contractor at Reboot Behavioral Science, he was thrilled at the opportunity to continue working in an environment that encourages one to look a variety of research based interventions including medication, targeted supplements, behavioral interventions, and genetic testing. He draws on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for therapeutic interventions and as a guide for pharmacological management. While considering treatment plans, he poses this question, “What is this medication [change] in service of?”
