DUNCAN GILL, MD
Duncan Gill, MD is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist who has worked for over 20 years with children, teenagers, and adults. He has worked with the full spectrum of patients, ranging from 5-year-olds with anxiety to 50-year-olds institutionalized for schizophrenia, in a wide variety of settings, including outpatient centers, inpatient units, group homes, and Residential Programs. Psychiatry appears to be a genetic illness in the family, as his father, grandfather, sister, uncle, and two great uncles suffer from the same affliction. Outside of work, Duncan likes sports and plays electric guitar in a band. He is believed to be – though this is unconfirmed – the only child psychiatrist who can dunk in New Hampshire.
JOSEPH WALSH, LCMHC
Cofounder and Program Director at Direction, Joe sadly passed away on October 25th, 2020. Nevertheless, his legacy and influence upon all those who knew him lives on.
Joseph Walsh, LCMHC was a licensed therapist (though he chafed at the title for reasons to be explained later) who worked for over 15 years in a supervisory position at Nashua Children’s Home with some of the most troubled of children and families. He spent much of his life developing Wholeistic Education, a comprehensive approach to living in pursuit of optimal wellness. He had numerous interests outside of his work, including the design and creation of electric guitars and amplifiers, a passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and a love of all sports except soccer. He was also the (self-proclaimed) world expert on “All Things [Led] Zep[pelin]”.
