Ali Henderson is a Registered Social Worker at Cleveland Clinic Canada. Ms. Henderson has experience providing mental health support in a wide variety of clinical areas including oncology, pediatrics, internal medicine and disordered eating. She has a strong interest in oncology, palliative care, eating disorders, and grief and loss.

Born with a natural passion to help others, Ms. Henderson was drawn to the field of social work at a young age. She completed her Bachelor of Social Work at Ryerson University in Toronto before going on to complete her Master of Social Work at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
