A Minute With... Dr. Philip Henry

Dr. Philip Henry loves the creative process, often comparing his work in counseling to art. Just as an artist changes mediums for different effects, he said that accepting the position as director of SU’s Counseling Center provided him with an opportunity to reinvent himself. Henry worked in private practice for about fifteen years then taught counseling at the graduate level for about
twelve years before coming to Ship in 2004.
