Having returned to Princeton in 2020, Henry is in his second year of doctoral studies. He takes a strong psychoanalytic and anthropological bent to exploring and pastorally addressing matters of shame, identity crises, achievement culture, athletics, and asceticism.

Henry graduated with an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2019. He spent the year prior to returning to Princeton fulfilling the ordination process as an ELCA pastor. He graduated from St. Olaf College in 2016 with degrees in both psychology and exercise science.

Apart from his studies, Henry enjoys running, choral singing, attending sporting events, traveling, and church ministry in surrounding Lutheran churches. He has called Dallas, Chicago, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Ottawa, and, most recently, Santa Fe home.
