Hunter Mayhew, CAC
Hunter's undergraduate degree is in Art Therapy, a combination of counseling-focused psychology and art-based therapeutic interventions which he began at the University of Vermont and finished at Albertus Magnus College in New Haven. While in the undergraduate program, Hunter began a practicum under a licensed clinician at the Stonington Institute which is a treatment facility for co-occurring disorders. Directly after graduation, he engaged in another two years of education in addiction science, counseling, and mental health diagnoses along with completing a number of long-term case studies and 4,000 supervised hours which allowed him to receive his certification in addiction counseling. Hunter's master’s education is in social work from Southern Connecticut State University which is a 72-credit counseling program that requires 1100 hours of supervised field-practice. During that time he completed the necessary requirements to apply for licensure as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC). Hunter began working at Waterstone Counseling Center in 2019 after almost four years of clinical work at the Stonington Institute. He is certified in Accelerated Resolution Therapy which he regularly implements in the treatment of trauma and many other disorders. Hunter's current goals, beyond continued professional development, are to support all of WCC's amazing clients who turn to WCC for compassionate, non-judgemental and effective treatment, as well as continue to be a part of the national movement to foster change throughout society by eliminating the stigma that circles those who struggle with addiction and mental health issues.
Waterstone Counseling Centers serve New London, New Haven and Middlesex Counties, Connecticut. The medication component of our MAT program requires a regional service area, however, our unique Integrated Psychotherapy services are available to a non-local community through telehealth solutions and our interactive education platform.
