A Message from Duncan
Relationships are at the core of almost everything we do - building romance, sharing quality time with friends, creating a professional network among colleagues, enjoying our family, supporting our community, and most importantly is the relationship with ourselves. Sometimes these relationships come easily and are fulfilling, while at other times they can make our life more challenging and stressful. Whether you're looking for help with one of these relationships specifically, or simply need a hand during a difficult time, I am here to support you.
The way I approach therapy is by collaboratively identifying what has room for improvement, then focusing on a category of skills or behaviors that we can then work to create positive change.
To do this, I frequently utilize techniques that draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, while making sure that the process fits your individual needs and goals.
I moved back to the Pacific Northwest from Tempe, Arizona where I graduated from Arizona State University. I enjoy whitewater kayaking, spending time with my dog and cat, hiking, and ballroom dancing to name a few. I look forward to working with couples, adults, and teens.
