David Livingstone Henderson, M.D.

I am a psychiatrist in private practice in Dallas, Texas. I have a passion for helping people through painful circumstances, be they physical illnesses of the brain, psychological conditions of the mind, or spiritual crises of the heart.

Dr. David Livingstone Henderson is a board-certified psychiatrist, author and speaker. He obtained his medical degree from Wright State University’s Boonshoft School of Medicine in Dayton Ohio, and then went on to complete a residency in Psychiatry at the University of South Carolina. Dr. Henderson has a private practice in Dallas, TX with Southwest Clinical and Forensics, where he sees clients wi

[01/16/21]   Are you interested in the interface between art, psychology and film?! Come join us at the Granada Theater on January 23rd starting at 6:30pm for OBSESSIONS OF MAN, a solo art exhibition and film premiere by dallas psychiatrist and artist, David Henderson. Tickets are $30 and all proceeds support Pathways To Hope, a mentorship program supporting the reentry of veteran and civilian offenders in the DFW prison system. COVID Guidelines will be followed and space is limited for social distancing purposes. Get your tickets through the Granada Theater website and support a local staple!! (Due to the explicit nature of the film, only those 21 and over will be admitted)

“Great [email protected] show!!!”
“OOM accomplishes what all good psychological art films should - it throws an impactful, abstract cacophony of profound meaning at you from all angles...forcing you to think fundamentally about reality and humanity.”
“The HENDERSON film premier was incredible! His art, perception and insight is amazing.”
“The film was mesmerizing and thought-provoking... I find myself still thinking through the scenes a week later.”

Depression in the C-suite

It can affect anyone!!

cnn.com Success and money are no cure for depression. Some entrepreneurs and C-suite executives have gone public with their struggles. But for others their pain is compounded by a fear of looking weak or vulnerable.

[01/15/18]   When confronted with the petty, the propagators of gossip, the judgmental who tell you you must always live in your past and never look to your future, keep silent in their presence, let them talk...and then RISE UP when they are sleeping, live with an unmitigated purpose that accepts mistakes as the means to deeper knowledge, weakness as a starting point for greater strength, and compassion as the only weapon against hatred! #inallthingsredemption #fourstones



First time doing a Facebook live interview with WFAA Channel 8. Thank you Hannah Davis for giving me the opportunity to advocate for the importance of caring for our mental health!

The Take home from my interview with CW33: Any day could be our last, so live each day with intention and purpose!!

cw33.com DALLAS- After witnessing ISIS, mass shootings, and natural disasters, it's easy to let yourself start living in fear.

One year ago today, I got my first copies of my book, My Teenage Zombie: Resurrecting the Undead Adolescent in Your Home. I'm so humbled by the opportunity to have put my thoughts on paper and share a message of hope with parents of struggling teens! #myteenagezombie

[07/12/17]   An adolescent’s risk of recurrent psychotic-like experiences jumps 159% when ma*****na use shifts from occasional to daily or even weekly use, according to a study published online in The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry.

[05/24/17]   The reward of enduring relationships comes through watching and waiting! When you've had a client, a friend, a family member who breaks your heart with their story of suffering and pain and you stay present with them for days, months or even years in order to have that one moment where something clicks, where the pain is lifted, and the narrative changes from tragedy to triumph, you can't help but cheer!
