About me

My name is Susan Henry, and I love helping people and seeing them grow. I am originally from the East Coast and resided in California before settling with my family in the Midwest. I received my Bachelor degree in Psychology from Rutgers College, and I received my Master in Social Work degree from Barry University School of Social Work. I am licensed in the state of Iowa as an Independent Level Social Worker. I have worked in the counseling field for over 25 years, with expertise working with issues related to Interpersonal Relations, Grief/Loss and Adjustment, PTSD/Trauma, and Anxiety/Depression. I provide a safe, sensitive, and non-judgemental space to explore your issues. Looking forward to being a part of your journey to better days ahead.

Very nice and caring and very easy to talk too

Susan has bent over backwards to work around my ever changing schedule. She has continued to offer excellent insights and support to me as I'm transitioning from marriage into single life. I can't recommend Susan highly enough, she's been amazing and I look forward to continuing to work with her for years to come.
