The Therapist​

My name is Henrietta Knox (1970), I am a licensed Professio​nal Counselor in the State of Oregon. I am Dutch and I have lived in the Eugene area since 2009.

I welcome people from all walks of life who are looking for help. I am a Christian. My Christianity has shaped my view of life, the world and people. You can trust that I absolutely respect your personal beliefs and lifestyle, whether they are similar to mine, or completely different.


My approach to counseling is based on the belief that people are resilient and can become more in balance with themselves and in their relationships by understanding themselves, their strengths, needs and hurts. As a result of this understanding one can make responsible choices about functioning in a healthier and satisfying way both personally and in relationships with others and live productive lives, and chose a path for healing from past pain or patterns. Counseling and psychotherapy can contribute to this understanding and healing.

Therapeutic Focus

I pull from a variety of theories and models to fit your needs. It is my first goal to create a safe therapeutic relationship, in which you feel respected and supported. I utilize an integrative approach working within a framework of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, but also use psycho-dynamic elements. With trauma and PTSD, I use a method called EMDR. I would be happy to explain my way of working to you in person.​


I have worked as a Counselor since 2001 in different settings; 5+ years counselor/counseling director in an International church, 4 years in private practice in Amsterdam The Netherlands and 5+ years as an online counselor. In 2011 I started a private practice in Eugene.

Before becoming a counselor, I worked as a social worker, with troubled youth (4 years) and in child-psychiatry (5 years).

Formal Training and Education

I am licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Oregon, license number: C2778. I am a licensed Psychologist in The Netherlands (Europe). I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work (1993) and a Bachelors and Master’s degree in Applied Developmental Psychology (2000) from the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 

I have completed a 2 year Post graduate program to become a licensed psychologist in the Netherlands. I participate in continuing education every year, to meet the standards of my license and to improve my knowledge and skills as a counselor.


Henrietta is the best therapist I've had, and as I am moving on in life, I am sad to have to stop working with her. Nonetheless, she is a wonderful, compassionate person with a real desire to help her clients, no matter the situation. Her methods for therapy are extremely effective and she is very flexible and knowledgeable. (Suzanne)

Henrietta stood by me in a very difficult time. She made me feel welcome and safe, and enabled me to learn new skills and face life better than before.  I have had therapy before, but never this effective. She gave me my life back. (Tom)
