Deborah M. Henson

Lawyer. Psychotherapist.
Divorce Mediator. Consultant. Lecturer.


Hybrid professional:Lawyer and LCSW

to help defend you in clinical grievances / complaints and assist with Divorce Mediation / Facilitation.

I am an Attorney and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Colorado and Louisiana, who defends mental health professionals in grievances with DORA (Colorado) and licensing Board Complaints (Louisiana). Also, I provide divorce mediation/facilitation through a collaborative divorce process, which lessens the adversarial nature of the divorce and prioritizes the needs and best interests of the children. I have recently moved to Northampton, Massachusetts and am opening a Bed & Breakfast a few blocks from downtown Northampton and a mile from Smith College. I travel to Colorado and Louisiana several times a year, so divorce mediation would be primarily long-distance except for in-person meetings when I am in town.

Additionally, I offer risk prevention consultations and training in Ethics and the overlap of law and clinical practice in both states and around the country. I offer self-protective, high-risk clinical practice training in Colorado and Louisiana several times a year and am available in between those times for teleconsults around the country.

If you are looking for a lawyer to defend you or to consult with who understands what it’s like to manage a clinical practice, I have the necessary experience and love helping people resolve their problems in whatever area they arise. And, if you are wanting to dissolve your marriage in the least destructive manner to you and your children, I am available to assist that process as a mediator/facilitator.
