Christine Henry, Ph.D.

Dr. Christine Henry (she/her)

  • Licensed Psychologist (Texas 35103) and PSYPACT Certified
  • Services: Teletherapy for adults (25+) both individual and group therapy.
  • Dr. Henry’s message: I work with adults (25+) who are able to have strong connections to animals but struggle in their relationships with people. My clients come to me after trying everything they can to help themselves such as reading self-help books and listening to podcasts but still feel stuck. They typically have a trauma history and despite being in therapy have symptoms that persist. After watching you tube videos and TikTok’s they start to wonder if they are autistic or ADHD. Together we tease apart what is trauma and what is being Neurodivergent. With this new understanding we process how to move forward with this new identity in a neurotypical world. I offer online therapy which allows clients to be in the comfort of their own home or office. If they have pets, it can feel nice to have them by their side as they process difficult emotions in session. Besides my clinical focus I also have lived experience being late diagnosed as being Neurodivergent myself. This is in addition to living with my twice exceptional daughter with PDA, my ADHD son, and my ADHD/Autistic partner.

  • Char’s message: As relational beings, we are instinctively wired for connection. It is within the context of relationship that we discover our potential for transformative change. I view therapy as a collaborative process of uncovering this potential by cultivating a deep, trusting relationship that becomes the vehicle for self-exploration and change. As a neurodivergent psychologist, I approach my work with a genuine sense of humility to create a space that is inclusive and affirming to all. I also feel that it is imperative to provide therapy that goes beyond merely treating symptoms. This is why I take a depth-oriented approach in order for us to discover the root causes of suffering, work through barriers, and move toward meaningful, long-lasting life changes. Drawing on a strengths-based approach, I customize my sessions to align with the uniqueness of each client. I believe in the importance of honoring the developmental, biological, sociocultural, and interpersonal parts of yourself to assist in the healing process. Using this comprehensive approach to treatment, I recognize that true well-being encompasses the integration of mental, emotional, and physical aspects of health.
