Who is behind HNC?

Sara Henry, is a Licensed Mar­riage and Fam­ily Ther­a­pist and the founder of the Henry Neu­roRe­la­tional Cen­ter in Naples and Fort Myers, Florida. She has been priv­i­leged to be part of the heal­ing and growth processes of chil­dren and their fam­i­lies, cou­ples and teenage and adult indi­vid­u­als for the last 21 years.

As a wife, mother and psy­chother­a­pist, she is keenly aware how vital our emo­tional rela­tion­ships are to our health and well being.
