Research Interests
Dr. Henry's primary research area of specialization is focusing on the systemic effects of trauma, as it specifically impacts couple relational systems.  Much of her research has focused on trauma in military couples and relational systems. Her dissertation was a qualitative study on the systemic effects of trauma, particularly war-related traumatic stress, as a result of military deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, in a sample of recent war veterans and their spouses. Her clinical specialty is treating addictions (drug, alcohol, sex addiction, and eating disorders). Her clinical experience as a Marriage and Family Therapist includes treating various behavioral health issues with individuals, couples, and families (such as addiction, depression, anxiety, anger management, codependency, relational problems, and mood disorders), and providing educational consultation on various behavioral health topics.
