Hunter has devoted the last 20 years to working with people in a variety of settings including outpatient therapy, residential therapy, after school groups, intensive home based therapy and wilderness settings. His passion for healing families and marriages led him to earn a masters degree in counseling at Denver Seminary and to complete post graduate work in marriage and family therapy at the Denver Family Institute where he graduated with highest honors for clinical excellence. In his practice Hunter has seen first hand the benefits of therapy for individuals and families for a range of difficulties.
Hunter has often worked in conjunction with clients’ psychiatrists to help clients reduce or eliminate medications while maintaining gains with the above concerns. While medication for mental health concerns is initially helpful, and is sometimes necessary ongoing, it should always be paired with therapy services to gain maximum effect that will continue after medication is ended.
The son of an engineer and an artist, Hunter began his professional career as an engineer. He finds that therapy gives him a place to blend his love of both science and art. He enjoys staying current on the technical studies in psychology, eager to transfer this insight into the art of clinical practice.

He has skills as a strengths based psychodynamic psychotherapist who uses aspects of Gestalt, Psychodrama, Parts Work, Coaching, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Structural Family Therapy, along with humor and deep empathy.
