Donald Henderson

LMHC

About me

I am an independently licensed therapist licensed in Iowa with over 10 years of experience working with couples, families, and individuals. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, PTSD, Bi-Polar, anger management, trauma, cognitive/emotional confusion, and self-identity concerns. I have helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, MI (motivational interviewing), trauma informed care (TIC), and person-centered therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Don M Henderson, LMHC
