Henry Bass

Henry P. Bass, Ph.D., is a Michigan-based licensed psychologist. He earned his Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the University of Nebraska in 2021. Dr. Bass’ areas of research while in graduate school were on the impact of environmental systems and family-school relationships on long-term development from childhood to young adulthood. In addition, he completed a two-year externship with the Munroe-Meyer Institute at the University of Nebraska Medical Center where he specialized in the diagnoses and treatment of autism spectrum disorders. He completed an internship through the Illinois School Psychology Internship Consortium at the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine where he received further specialized training in the evaluation and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders, including ADHD, autism, and specific learning disorders. After finishing his doctorate, Dr. Bass completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Thriving Minds Behavioral Health in Brighton, MI, where he worked as a staff psychologist providing therapy, consultation, and testing services to children, adolescents, and their families.

Although initially specializing in mental health needs for a younger population, Dr. Bass’ interests began expanding to include an older clientele as much of his time was often spent providing support to clients’ parents and caregivers. Through those experiences, he began seeking out opportunities to expand his practice to include clients across the lifespan. He ultimately went on to complete a second fellowship at CNLD Testing & Therapy where he gained additional training providing therapy and diagnostic services to clients of all ages.

Across his professional career, Dr. Bass has served in a variety of roles providing diagnostic evaluations, therapy, parent/caregiver consultations, executive function and life coaching, and school-based consultation. At present, he primarily provides treatment to teens and adults experiencing problems associated with ADHD, depression, anxiety, high functioning autism, sleep, social skills, family dynamics, and school and workplace stressors. He also provides consultation services to schools on providing support to children with complex learning needs. Dr. Bass works from an ecological orientation with emphasis on skill-building and strength-based models to improve the long-term outcomes for his clients. As such, his treatment methods focus on incorporating strategies from a range of approaches including cognitive-behavioral therapy, ABA and behavior therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, person-centered therapy, and internal family systems.
