B. Duffy Spencer, PhD, LMHC, Counselor in Westbury
I'm a social psychologist and a Licensed Mental Health practitioner, I specialize in helping people reclaim the natural gifts and talents that have been lost to them due to childhood wounds and insufficient nurturing. I love working with people who have decided to write the next chapters of their lives on their own terms. This involves reclaiming self-esteem and learning the difference between the true self and the co-dependent self plus the difference between healthy and toxic relationships.
I help people deal with old wounds and obstacles they face to their higher goals in a compassionate & safe environment. I work with the whole person and the body- mind-soul connection. I also utilize this concept fully working with couples to help them remain as individuals in their connection.
As a social psychologist, I help people understand their personal issues in a societal context for heartfelt resolution. As a 12 Step therapist, I help people distinguish those factors that they can & cannot control. Since I'm certified in both Gestalt & Imago therapy I help people as individuals & in relationship.
