Marijayne Henry, LCSW

Maryjayne Henry received her degree from the Rutgers School of Social work and has been employed as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2000. Her practice focus is working with adults and their families who have been affected by addiction, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. She has also worked with patients in a variety of clinical settings (inpatient, partial care, insensitive outpatient), those within the LGBTQ community, and patients who are going through a crisis and major life transitions.

Maryjane has most recently been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is a treatment protocol that was designed over 30 years ago by Dr. Francine Shapiro to help patients diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Dr. Shapiro found that patients who used eye movements while thinking about a painful memory helped to make the emotions attached to that memory to be less traumatic. She went on to develop a program to help patients identify memories as well as the thoughts and emotions attached to them. She also found that having the patient follow her fingers back and forth provided stimulation to the brain that helped patients process memories and reduce the emotional pain associated with them.
