Henry Isaac earned a master’s degree in counseling from the University of Memphis and a BS in sociology and corrections from Mississippi State University. From an early age, he was inspired to make a difference in the lives of at-risk individuals who found themselves in and out of jail or struggled with substance abuse. Isaac possesses a strong knowledge and understanding of correctional rehabilitation and has worked with populations such as law enforcement, mental health and adolescents. He understands the relationship between repeat offenders and mental health and substance abuse and was able to use his gifts and talents to help enrich the lives of inmates in the penal and correctional institutes while addressing their underlying mental health issues as well with the hope of reducing high recidivism rates.
Isaac joined the team at The Oaks in 2015, serving as a residential therapist with responsibilities that includes facilitation of group and Individual therapy, and anger management and mental health group therapy. He is also trained in EMDR. When not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, spearheading church events, youth sports and working out.
