Mary McKay Duncan, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Austin
Inevitably, in the course of supporting our children in building strong and happy lives, we, as parents, are faced with quandries, unanticipated concerns and challenges. Children who are, at times, willful or intense, even anxious or gifted, can benefit from and flourish in the context created by parents willing to think and work outside of the box of everyday parenting. Creative appreciation of your child's daily experience of the world and small victories, maintaining clear limits and reducing energy given to negative behaviors can tip the energetic balance in favor of the emergence of your child's strengths.
I work with children, adolescents, college students, and with parents, collaborating closely for the child. As an advanced Nurtured Heart Approach® trainer, I incorporate this work with psychodynamic, cognitive, solution focused, and humanistic approaches.
Areas of focus include parenting, working with gifted or intense children and those dealing with anxiety, willfulness, developmental, behavioral or attentional issues. In working individually to tailor a treatment plan addressing the concerns at hand, I look to the client's strengths and choices.
