Dr. Trish Henrie-Barrus
Dr. Trish received her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Utah and has been in private practice for 20 years. She specializes in working with those with depression, anxiety, addictions, and ketamine treatments. Dr. T also teaches undergraduate and graduate-level Positive Psychology courses at the University of Utah. She also leads the ketamine research team.
I had the incredible experience of working with Dr. Trish and participating in Ketamine Psychotherapy sessions in partnership with Forum Health. Words cannot explain how beneficial and life changing these sessions were for me. I have struggled with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and chronic illness for most of my life. I also had a hard time coping with extreme grief and suicidal tendencies. I was able to sit down with Dr. Trish and set some objectives and goals that I wanted for my treatment plan. My first ketamine session was absolutely mind blowing. We talked and identified what I wanted to focus on processing during my session before hand, which was grief and overcoming a traumatic experience. The Ketamine experience itself was peaceful and exciting at the same time. y mind flew through shapes and universes while listening to the hypnotic voice of Dr. Trish guide my sub-conscious into letting go of my grief and sadness. She guided and re-programmed my mind and neuro pathways into accepting peace and joy. She ultimately helped me fid hope, healing, and happiness! Her therapy, her guiding words, and each progressive Ketamine session gave me a new default thought process that made me feel happy and at peace. Within 6 sessions, I feel I have accomplished more in my healing and well-being than I have with talking with therapists in over 15 years. I no longer feel debilitated by grief and sadness in my heart. I no longer feel plagued by negative self-harm thoughts, and instead my thoughts are positive and uplifting. I feel at peace and accepting of my life, my challenges, and feel that my coping mechanisms are healthier than ever. Words cannot express my gratitude to Dr. Trish Henrie and Riverwoods Behavioral Health for their exceptional help in my personal life, healing my mind and soul, and helping me overcome so much.
"I first met Dr. Trish in February for amino acid therapy. I was a bit skeptical but after spending a few minutes with the Doc, I knew she was genuine and truly had my best interests in mind. Dr. Henrie's level of commitment and concern for her patients, in my opinion, is second to none. She has shown that when we meet, she not only understands but actually feels what I feel. I will continue to see the Doc. She is a great companion to me on this messed up journey that we call addiction recovery. If you need a calm in your storm ... just sayin. - Ric
I’ve been fighting depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation since I was a child. I’ve seen different doctors and mental health specialists over the years, but Dr. Trish is the only one I’ve made significant and meaningful progress with. Her practice of using positive psychology, in addition to her staunch support and advocacy for the well-being of myself and many other patients, has made all the difference in my ongoing progress. Learning to be mindful, proactive, and assertive when necessary are just a few of the many skills Dr. Trish has been patiently guiding me through. Although it is a work in a long going progress, I’ve come to realize that the person I am now is definitely an improvement over the one that Dr. Trish initially began working with. This realization has given me something that I gave up believing in a long time ago... a bit of hope. Hope for the possibility of a future even better me. Speaking in general, her dedication to and professional partnership with her patients in her efforts to help them realize the benefits of positive change in all aspects of their lives are truly priceless.
Words cannot express the tremendous amount of gratitude I feel for Dr Trish.
Dr. Trish - "I’ve been deeply depressed for years because of chronic physical pain and past traumas that I had experienced. I was 100% suicidal. I had a plan, I had written my family a note. I attempted suicide. In the weeks after my failed attempt I felt more depressed then I had before attempting suicide. I immediately started ketamine therapy with Dr Trish and it has saved me from ending my own life and given me hope and optimism for the future.
I would recommend ketamine Induced psychotherapy to anyone struggling with PTSD, Anxiety, depression, or suicidal thoughts, ideation or failed attempts. - Justin
I am grateful that my children and I have been guided to meet and work with Dr. Trish, She has helped my children and I through very challenging and heartbreaking trials and abuse. We have been guided to understand we are not alone. There are people to help, tools to apply and knowledge that we can use to focus moving forward. We can be grateful in any circumstance. We are moving forward with hope and happiness for a future not free from trials, but a future full of all the experiences we are blessed to have and learn from throughout life. I would and have recommended Trish for individuals, families and children who are in need of her help. Working with her has blessed our lives and we are grateful for her professionalism and expertise in her field.
Thank you. - Rebekah
“People forget that we all struggle - that you can be a sister, a mom, a manger, a doctor, or an executive with a high-paying salary and still face chronic illness. As a perfectionistic and strong-willed businesswoman, ketamine allowed me to discover vulnerability within myself and begin to heal. I stopped pretending that I was ok and started doing the work that 10 years of traditional medicine and therapy couldn’t do. I gained the subconscious ability to understand my thought processes and make rational, healthy decisions. There’s nothing more powerful than to be in control of your body, mind and soul when you’ve lived your life controlled by addictive tendencies. Ketamine gave me that ability back, but more so did Dr. Trish’s principles of recovery.” - Amy
