Announcement icon During COVID-19, I am conducting telehealth sessions only. My contact information remains the same and I am accepting new clients.
"Mighty oaks from little acorns grow." Acorn Psych is the private practice of Dr. Dena Dunn, a licensed clinical psychologist, infant mental health specialist, and child development consultant. I offer individual and family therapy as well as parenting support and child development consultation. I believe in holding space for strong people during vulnerable times, sitting beside humans seeking light in darkness, nurturing aspiring parents and expectant families through their journey to parenthood, and guiding new families to feel comfort, confidence, and joy with their child.
I offer individual therapy for adults, dyads (parent+infant), and work with young children and their families. I seek to serve families who have experienced pregnancy loss, aspiring parents on an infertility journey, adoptive and LGBTQIA+ families, and single parents-by-choice. I also offer child development consultations live, by phone and telepsychology.
Sometimes the strongest people become the most vulnerable in the face of significant life stressors, transitions, change and parenthood. Finding someone to walk beside you as you navigate your journey can be transformative. My approach to therapy is relationship-focused, patient-centered, culturally-attuned, and strength-based.
