At NESH we believe, people of all ages, all races, and all socioeconomic statuses should have access to therapy for the mind, yoga for the body, and a wellness community to feed the soul.  Our mission is to create health equity through specifically targeting the physical and mental health of New Yorkers.


NESH Mind | Body | Soul is a wellness center that offers a unique services model personalizing each individuals experience based on his or her specific needs.  We help individuals infuse healthy practices into their everyday routines through mental health therapy, physical fitness, and a supportive wellness community.

 Meet The Team

Dynesha Henderson, LCSW is a licensed and trained couples and family therapist who is the visionary behind NESH Mind | Body | Soul.  The concept was created after spending endless hours in coffee shops during graduate school seeking a space to work, or just a place to relax.  Later realizing it was the great vibes and community feel within the cafés that was so attractive in coupling it with this concept.  Dynesha received a Bachelors of Science in Community Health from Eastern Illinois University, and her Masters Degree in Social Work from Chicago State University.  Most recently, she attended a post-graduate program at the Ackerman Institute for the Family for specific training in couples and family therapy.  The therapeutic model Dynesha believes in is to understand problems through therapy, strengthen and center the body through fitness, and have a supportive community around you. Over the last 8 years, Dynesha has worked in school settings, clinic setting, and is currently a clinical supervisor at a Queens Therapy Clinic.  She is also a certified yoga teacher that utilizes yoga as a teaching  tool to help others understand the connection between their mind and body.
