TAMFT Board Spotlight - Susan Henderson

And now for another round of, "Guess whose favorite movie is Clueless?" We just love that about her! Today, we are highlighting Susan Henderson, Associate Board Member of TAMFT. Find out one of her go-to self-care practices (hint: it rhymes with shmocolate).

Name:  Susan  E. Henderson

Hometown:  Huntsville, Texas

Education: Ph.D. Counselor Education; MA Family Psychology. I am an LPC and LMFT Associate.

TAMFT Board Position:  Associate Board Member

Cats or dogs:  Do I have to choose?

Little known fact about yourself: I also have an MS in Agriculture, obtained prior to my Ph.D. when I was thinking of switching directions.

What is your proudest accomplishment: My Ph.D. (that was something I never imagined obtaining, but I wanted to mentor and teach after having one of the best in Agriculture).

What is your morning routine: Some type of exercise (after my coffee). I do CrossFit & cardio three times a week and then walk my dog on other days.

Coffee, tea, or nothing: Coffee – especially with some type of spice in it (jalapeno, cayenne).

Who is your hero: I have many people that have been my mentors and I look to for wisdom. But I don’t think I have one hero.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be: The mountains – no specific location at this time.

Favorite sports team: Dallas Stars (hockey)

Favorite movie: This is strange for a 51-year-old, but it is Clueless.

Favorite book:  Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Favorite song:  I have no clue – I love all genres of music so it is hard to decide.

Favorite quote: Feel the fear and do it anyway.

Favorite part of your job: Mentoring students

Your go-to self-care practice: Exercise, my dog, my cat, wine, and chocolate.

Last therapy book you read or training you attended: I attend many trainings and read portions of many books, but the one that I dove into was the EFT Externship.

Your chosen theoretical orientation and why: I am integrative, but I pull from attachment-based therapies as well as CBT. I find that much of what troubles people are their relationships. I also believe that CBT can be a good fit at times due to how thinking patterns can interfere with living well.

One piece of advice for new clinicians: It is hard to nail it down to just one. I changed this answer three times! Always be open to learning – your clients are some of your best teachers.
