Dr. Stephen Cohen Henriques

A Recovery and Life Coach, Specializing in Addiction & Trauma

Dr. Henriques’s personal history led him into the field of recovery. As a survivor of alcoholism himself, Stephen was left with the desire to be of service to others. And this meant that for him, there was no higher calling than to become a recovery coach. That’s why he left a lucrative position on Wall Street to help those who were not able to help themselves.

Dr. Henriques is a Ph.D.-level recovery coach specializing in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). His experiential approach focuses on facing daily challenges outside of the therapeutic bubble, and so collaboration outside of the traditional office space is key to his practice.

Real Issues, Real Time.

Dr. Henriques helps his patients modify the way they think. And once their worldview has changed — then and only then — their behavior can follow. He makes this happen by engaging directly in the client’s life, whether that is on the road, in the office, on a movie set, or on the playing field. This approach ensures that behaviors can be adjusted and problems can be solved immediately, and without having to wait for next week’s session.

No one can predict when a crisis will happen, when an addiction will be triggered, or when a relapse will occur. This is why Dr. Henriques and his team offer 24/7 emergency availability and a full continuum of recovery coaching, as well as case and crisis management. Removing the office setting allows for a greater sense of freedom. And being able to express oneself freely, whether outdoors at a park, in a restaurant, on the beach, and even on the golf course, is an excellent first step on the road to recovery. This sort of concierge aftercare approach creates the kinds of freedom and security that are only possible outside of the unrealistic “bubble” environment.

By providing the guidance and tools for growth and healing, Dr. Henriques and the Parallax team allow their patients to build life skills and develop realistic mindsets. Parallax creates a safe space for you to see that a person’s past behaviors do not define them. You can be a good person even when your actions have resulted in negative consequences and hurt others.
