About Me

I’m a psychologist with more than 20 years of experience. I am also a professor training Marriage and Family Therapists. But more than teaching, I love counseling. The joy of discovering a solution for a problem with someone and see them grow and thrive, is amazing.
I love working with people. We are not perfect and therefore, at times, we all need help. The greatest mistake is trying to solve your problems alone. I see counseling as the undiscovered gem in human functioning – far too many people miss the opportunity of working with a trained and skilled counselor to help them figure out a plan through their challenge. I’m glad you are considering this option; I’m glad that you are reading my profile and I would love working with you.

Dr. Venter was very helpful in helping me better understand and manage myself. He is non-judgemental, knowledgeable, and kind. I highly recommend Dr. Venter.

He’s professional, wise and listens. He cares without judgement to help you seek to be you again. We all struggle. He is easy to talk to and provides tools to use to try to get better. I highly recommend him as a counselor.

Dr Henry went right to the heart of my issues, and was quickly able to pinpoint my ailments, and gave me tools and methods to deal with them right away. I reached out to BetterHelp during a dark period of my life, and my expectations were vastly surpassed by Dr Henry.
He provides warm and welcoming advice and coaching, and his expertise is deeply appreciated.
