Carly Henderson

Licensed Professional Counselor

I am a Professional Counselor working with all ages on a number of presenting issues. I have experience working with very young children and their families, as well as adolescents and adults. I use an eclectic approach with heavy reliance on family systems, attachment theory, and cognitive therapy.

My Approach

My practice is guided by the belief that every adult and child strives to do the best they can. The individual or family system may need assistance in developing necessary skills and guidance in solving problems. Working collaboratively with clients I help them to narrate new ways of interacting with their environment.

My Background

I was born and raised in Oregon, and have spent several years overseas in Europe and Africa. I have Master's degrees from Lewis & Clark College in Counseling Psychology and from University of Cambridge in Social and Developmental Psychology. I completed my undergraduate work in Psychology, also at Lewis & Clark in Portland. I have worked as a counselor for most of the past 14 years, first as a Professional School Counselor in the US and overseas, and for the past six years in the private sector. Additionally, I spent two years working as a Behavior Consultant for children in a large public school district in Oregon. I have additional training in Interpersonal Neurobiology, Collaborative Problem Solving, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, all of which support healthy family systems and individual growth.
