From domestic abuse victim to best-selling author, Heather Henley is the master of crisis therapy – shaking up the broken to swiftly bring their junk to the surface to enable them to deal with it now. She promotes mass healing quickly (versus individual healing slowly) and has a proven track record in getting amazing results in the most hopeless situations – even where others have failed.
Heather knows that you are not your past and until you have the right tools, you can’t ever fully live presently.
She has more than twenty years of field experience in all areas of mental health. Getting her hands dirty in the trenches is where her heart has always gravitated. On the streets of Skid Row is where Heather honed her short term dynamic therapy while interning alongside faculty of Pepperdine University and UCLA.
A woman of passion, vision, and purpose, Heather embodies a no-nonsense approach in her message. “If it can’t be done in six months, it can’t be done” is a quote she lives by as she is hand-picked by state agencies to work with the worst clients to stabilize them. Her clients refer to affectionately as the “Queen of Consequences” as she is constantly reinforcing belief in natural consequences and accountability. She is transparent, without pretense, and wise in her counsel.
She has a bachelor’s in political science from Indiana State University, a masters in criminology from Indiana State University and community psychology from Martin University, is a licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), with credentials as a Certified Sexually Abusive Youth Clinician (CSAYC), a Registered Behavior Consultant (BS), a Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMHP), and a PhD candidate in Christian Counseling.
In her free time, she likes to travel and sing. She is happily married to a mental health care professional and is the proud mother of two children.
