About

I am currently accepting new clients of all ages and have daytime, weekend, and some evening availability. Are you struggling to manage your emotions or behavior? Does your child seem sad, anxious, or have frequent mood swings?I can help! I assist children and adults in learning how to better regulate their emotions so that they can feel better and be more engaged in the present moment. I offer both in-person sessions and teletherapy. I also offer animal-assisted psychotherapy. Contact me for a free 30 minute phone consultation to see if my approach is a good fit for you or your child.
During child sessions, parents join for a portion of the session and learn the skills their child is learning so they can support their child. I believe that while it is important for the child to be able to share information confidentially with their therapist, it is also important for the parent to know what the child is doing in their counseling session.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have 19 years of experience in the mental health field and work with all ages. I am married and have three active children (ages 8, 12, and 15) so I am aware of the stresses of parenting at different stages, and the chaos that comes with managing multiple school aged children and their activities.

Heather Dumas's Groups

Supporting Your Child with Anxiety

This is an 8 week educational and skill building group for parents/guardians of children who have anxiety. Parents/guardians will learn more about anxiety and how it works, as well as skills to support their child. Children will not participate in this group, but will benefit significantly from the skills their parents learn. The group meets on a virtual platform for 8 weeks, for a total cost of $150.00. Group size is limited to 6 parents/guardians, and each participant receives one free follow up session to discuss any anxiety concerns that weren't addressed in the group.
