Heather L. Hunt, Ph.D.


Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to  life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.

–Khalil Gibran


Welcome to my practice!  The environment at CMBT aims to calm, relax, and provide an atmosphere of mental quietness that allows for complete focus on you while in session.  Life poses many internal and external competitors for your attention, detracting from self-awareness.   In therapy, we aim to remove this “noise” in an effort to allow for optimal ways to work on developing your true inner voice, by way of resolving inner conflicts that affect how you interact with those around you as well as how you value your true self.

My approach to therapy utilizes a variety of different treatment modalities in order to provide an optimal pathway to wellness.  The method used depends on the issues presented and the person’s affinity for a certain approach in navigating self-healing processes.   I am fluent in American Sign Language and primarily work with Deaf*/deaf clients.

This journey toward healing may involve:

  • conflict resolution
  • insight-oriented analysis of the inner self and your way of interacting with the world around you
  • how to manage day-to-day struggles with debilitating symptoms of depression, anxiety, or psychosis
  • implementation of behavior management programs for reduction of stressful, life-impairing symptoms
  • family systems approach
