Dr. Heidi Dunham

I work with clients across the lifespan, and I approach therapy using a strength-based bio-psychosocial perspective with an integrative orientation. Clients tell me that I really listen and that I understand even when their words are not always forthcoming. I am genuine and focus on creating a safe and nurturing therapeutic environment. It is through collaboration, within a trusting relationship, that clients are able to open up and begin the healing process.

I have doctoral and masters degrees in clinical from Antioch University, New England and previously earned a graduate degree in education from Keene State College. I have worked with children as a teacher and as a therapist in both public and private school settings. I am currently working toward earning a doctoral degree in clinical psychology and for the last two years have worked in a community mental health setting for adults and families. I have treated clients struggling with extensive trauma histories, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, attention deficit disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and impulse-control disorders. In addition to working with clients on an individual therapy basis, I have experience running skills based groups, process-oriented groups, and support groups. Psychological assessment is an area of strength and an area of great interest. I have worked as a teaching assistant at Antioch University, New England, supporting graduate level assessment training. I am well versed in assessing for learning disabilities, developmental disabilities, attention deficit disorder, and personality disorders.

I specialize in treating issues of trauma, grief, depression, emotional dysregulation, interpersonal difficulties, parenting concerns, and neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., ADHD).
