Brianne Henry-McAllister, Psy.D.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who graduated from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in 2012. I completed my predoctoral internship at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University’s Children’s Hospital, where I specialized in mood, anxiety, and health concerns with children, adolescents, families, and adults. I completed my postdoctoral residency at the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters in Norfolk, Virginia, focusing on cognitive behavioral therapy and psychological assessment with children and adults. I have since worked as a behavioral health consultant in family health, pediatrics, and women’s health clinics and as the assistant director of a college counseling center. I enjoy doing therapy with individuals across the lifespan, including youth, parents, families, couples, and adults.
As a therapist, I draw from cognitive behavioral, relational dynamic, and systems theories. I value working with the person in front of me and do not believe that every person needs the same thing. I enjoy helping clients use their existing strengths and develop new skills to improve relationships and overall quality of life. I have received advanced training in many evidence-based treatments, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, trauma-focused treatments, dialectical behavioral-informed treatment (DBT), and interpersonal therapy (IPT). I strongly believe in the mind-body connection, and use my background as a behavioral health consultant to help clients create their healthiest lifestyle both mentally and physically.
In addition to therapy, I provide comprehensive psychological assessments, give educational presentations, and offer consultation to physicians or other community providers. Psychological assessment includes cognitive, emotional, and/or neuropsychological batteries to better understand how an individual thinks and behaves. The resulting comprehensive report provides individualized recommendations to children, adults, families, or referring providers. I work with the systems that are most important to you (physicians, schools, etc.) to give feedback and build a supportive network that bolsters success.
Outside of my work as a psychologist, I enjoy spending time with my spouse and three young children. I love running, hiking, yoga, traveling, and any kind of outdoor adventure.
