Our Providers Approach To Therapy

Danielle Walsh 

Danielle approaches therapy from a humanistic, person-centered lens. She believes in the innate goodness and wisdom of her clients, and strives to honor this by listening attentively, holding clients with unconditional positive regard, and providing empathic reflection. A commitment to work for social justice drives Danielle’s life, both in and out of the therapy office. She strives to be genuine and to live in congruence with her values, knowing that this allows her to bring her best self to her work with her clients. Danielle is able to use elements drawn from many different theoretical approaches (including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical-behavioral therapy, and emotionally-focused therapy) in order to help clients meet their treatment goals.

Mike Duncan 

Mike’s approach to therapy incorporates aspects of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT) with a humanistic-existential foundation.  This means that he puts an emphasis on examining thoughts and behaviors in conjunction with attending to a client’s subjective experience of authenticity and meaning to address challenges in the client’s relationship with their environment.  He believes that each person is doing their best to meet their needs, and that developing trust and building a robust therapeutic relationship are essential for successful therapy.  With Mike you may discuss themes of connection and isolation, choice and responsibility, and change and acceptance, while proactively setting intentions or goals in each session to reinforce the work you do in therapy.

Mike works to cultivate and nurture humility toward and respect for all sexual, gender, and relationship expansive people.  He does this by acknowledging and educating himself in the intersections of transphobia, homophobia, and heterosexism, and racism, power, and privilege with mental health in contemporary American society.  His approach to therapy is sex-affirmative, kink-aware, and poly-friendly.  Mike is open to having frank discussions about racial justice, feminism, HIV/AIDS, health at every size, substance use, sex work, non-mainstream religious and spiritual practices, and more.  It is important for him to acknowledge and work through his own privilege and bias, break down dominant-culture expectations and narratives, and not make normative assumptions, as well as be out and affirmative about his identity as a multi-racial, White-presenting, gender-fluid, romantically-open, queer man.
