Dr. Brianne Henry-McAllister (Dr. Brie, she/her/hers) is a licensed psychologist who provides therapy to individuals across the lifespan, including children, adolescents, parents, families, couples, and individual adults.  She has received advanced training in many evidence-based treatments, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, trauma-focused treatments, dialectical behavioral-informed treatment (DBT), systems theories, and interpersonal therapy (IPT).   Dr. Henry-McAllister values working with the unique needs of the person and does not believe that every person needs the same thing.  She enjoys helping clients use their culture, values, and existing strengths to develop new skills, improve relationships, and enhance overall quality of life.  She strongly believes in the mind-body connection and uses her background as a behavioral health consultant to help clients create their healthiest lifestyle both mentally and physically.  Dr. Henry-McAllister honors the individual experience of each person, incorporating intersecting identities of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual identity, ability, religion, body type, and socioeconomic status into treatment. 

 

In addition to therapy, Dr. Henry-Mcallister provides comprehensive psychological assessments, gives educational presentations, and offers consultation to physicians or other community providers.  Psychological assessment includes cognitive, emotional, academic and/or neuropsychological batteries to better understand how individuals think, learn, and 

behave.  The resulting comprehensive report provides individualized recommendations to children, adults, families, or referring providers.  Dr. Henry-McAllister works with the systems that are most important to the client (physicians, schools, community leaders, etc.) to give feedback and build a supportive network that bolsters success.

 

Dr. Henry-McAllister graduated from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in 2012.  She completed her predoctoral internship at Columbia University’s Children’s Hospital/New York Presbyterian Hospital, where she specialized in mood, anxiety, and health concerns with children, adolescents, families, and adults.  She completed her 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.  She has since worked as a behavioral health consultant in family health, pediatrics, and women’s health clinics, as the assistant director of a college counseling center, and now in her role as an outpatient practitioner. 

 

Outside of her work as a psychologist, Dr. Brie enjoys spending time with her spouse and four young children.  She loves running, hiking, yoga, traveling, and any kind of outdoor adventure.
