My approach is grounded in service, social justice, and intersectional feminism. Together, we will create a safer space where you feel supported in deconstructing and re-writing the story of your life in a way that is meaningful and empowering to you. Lived experience and marginalized voices are uplifted and centered in my work – you are the expert on your own identity and reality, and I celebrate that! My hope is that you will develop skills to navigate your situation, knowledge of available resources, and agency to cultivate more joy, delight, and pleasure in your life.

Hunter Downs, MS,
PC Counselor

I love to help people improve their current quality of life by diving into the past to settle any unfinished business. I have been in your shoes as a person seeking mental health services and can empathize with how difficult that can be. I am equipped in creating a safe and comfortable environment for people of all different backgrounds and orientations . I have experience working in corrections and outpatient therapy and have worked with teenagers, adolescents, and older adults. My goal for all my clients is to help them expand their “toolbelts” to better be able to cope with all of life’s stressors. Using Gestalt and Cognitive Behavioral counseling models, I aim to empower my clients to direct their own therapy sessions. In our sessions, we will work collaboratively together to find solutions to the problems that prevent you from reaching your best potential.

In my sessions, I promote a space that is completely free of judgement, encourage you to speak freely and openly, and provide an emotional support system. Experienced work with mood disorders (anxiety, depression, etc.) and utilizing a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy in order to help develop greater awareness and problem-solving alternatives to behaviors; I have experience working with children/teens and adults to achieve a greater awareness within themselves and their environment.
