Dr. Anthea Henderson

I joined this amazing team of advocates in 2016. I have the privilege of working with students who are faced with unique circumstances and may require assistance with finding the right resources. It is my personal belief that with the right support, you will succeed!

As a native of Antigua, West Indies and having grown up in St. Croix, Virgin Islands, I understand the challenge of transitioning to a very different culture. Though my heart and cultural roots will always reside in the Caribbean, Tampa has very much become home. My family moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana where I completed high school. I then attended Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri and earned a Bachelor and Master of Arts in Psychology. I then earned a Doctoral (PhD) in Counselor Education and Supervision at USF, and I am also a Certified Program Evaluator.

My areas of expertise, as an experienced trainer and consultant, include cultural competence, social justice, teamwork, effective communication, interpersonal relationships, and a variety of counseling specific topics.  I have taught “Multicultural Perspectives in Human Services” for over 10 years as an adjunct at HCC. I enjoy providing my students with the space to gain insight into their own beliefs and behaviors while accepting the challenge of listening to and learning from others.

I welcome the opportunity to spend some time getting to know our USF students and to understand how I can better support you. Together, we will determine what opportunities at USF will be most beneficial to your experience.  I look forward to celebrating your accomplishments as you achieve your academic goals.
