Professional statement

Dr. Henry Zhu is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in New York state. He is the founder of Mind-Body Wellness, a private practice that integrates physical and mental health practices to promote wellness. Dr. Zhu specializes in working with adults, specifically emerging adults, providing the emotional support they need to feel equipped and ready to handle life's stressors. Many of Dr. Zhu's clients feel overwhelmed or burnt out, which results in anxiety, depression, or harmful behaviors that move them away from their life goals. Dr. Zhu is passionate about working with Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) populations, especially Asian, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and Desi American (ANHPIDA) clients. Dr. Zhu also specializes in working with trauma, specifically chronic or complex trauma that may have developed over the course of many years.

Dr. Zhu draws from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach, working on understanding thought patterns and behavioral patterns to adapt to stressors. Additionally, Dr. Zhu draws from the latest mindfulness-based approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) techniques in his therapeutic approach. He incorporates strategies to help clients feel more attuned to their mind and body, bringing them purposefully to experience the present moment. Dr. Zhu is proud to impart onto client life philosophies rather than simple tools for a quick fix.

Dr. Zhu earned his Ph.D. in Psychology from Hofstra University. He has an extensive background in working with clients in various settings, including hospitals, clinics, and campuses. He has helped hundreds of clients create meaningful change in their lives.


Message to clients

I believe in providing a seamless experience for those who may or may not have been to therapy before. You may be interested in learning more, so definitely fill out a contact form, and we can schedule a free 15-minute consultation to best assess your needs.

If you want to move forward and work with me directly, we just need some paperwork filled out. Everything is made simple by the use of the client portal, and everything nowadays can be completed electronically. Telehealth has also made attending sessions super easy, so you can be working with me in the comfort of your home or any conference space that maintains your privacy. No need to commute and come into a clinic!

So the most important thing I can provide is a non-judgmental space to talk about anything and everything. Clients who have worked with me feel a sense of relief after putting everything on the table and having a clear blueprint for moving forward. My goal is to be your guide - to understand yourself better, work on useful life skills, and attain goals you set out for yourself. I believe that everyone deserves to find meaning, purpose, and life satisfaction. Together, we can work to make that a reality.


Specialties

Asian Identity and Mental Health - Celebrating the Asian Diaspora and learning coping strategies to balance Eastern and Western ideals. Often, Asian Americans feel in between two worlds - I help clients to navigate that in-between.

Anxiety - Coping with excessive worry, nervousness, or stress generally. Intense discomfort in social settings (social anxiety). Sudden and intense feelings of panic (panic disorder). Existential dread and a feeling of being overwhelmed in a society that's too much all the time.

Depression - Providing strategies to combat hopelessness, low motivation and energy, sadness, irritability, sleep disturbance, and loss of interest and pleasure in life. Behavioral activation and fully engaging in your life lead to increased energy and self-efficacy.

Trauma - Coping and healing after threatening or scary events, such as witnessing accidents or experiencing sexual, verbal, emotional, or physical abuse. Traumatic events lead to flashbacks, avoidance of life, and a general feeling of un-safety. Additionally, Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD) can negatively impact your perception of the world. Repeated trauma, such as emotional abuse and neglect can lead to a constant critical voice, a lack of feeling safe, and consistent self-doubt.

Relationship issues - Understanding one’s wants and needs in relationships; exploring patterns of interaction, addressing concerns, and strengthening satisfaction in relationships and dating. Focusing on the resolution of differences in the relationship and conflicts that arise as a result.

Men's Mental Health - Helping men find out their core values in a society that tells them to be too many things all at once. Helping men explore emotions and de-stigmatize mental health - expressing emotion and vulnerability is strength.
