Hello, my name is Buddy Duncan. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for well over twenty years. In my private practice I have worked with many individuals in crisis and transition. I began years ago working with those struggling with addiction issues. I then transitioned to several years working with those with severe medical issues and chronic pain. I have functioned as a Marriage Counselor in all of these years and specialized the last decade with grief and loss issues. I taught psychology in college for multiple years and served as an academic advisor to college students. My practice has been varied yet I have consistently practiced as a cognitive behavioral therapist who believes each person has the ability to make choices and decisions that can empower their lives to move in the direction of their choosing. My experience has allowed me to witness an abundance of people overcome complex challenges and move forward in a positive manner through talk therapy by offering healthy options in a safe non judgmental environment.

I appreciate Buddy so much! He’s so easy to talk to, and he’s a great listener! He’s helped me to find my hope again! I enjoy our sessions, I always feel mentally relieved afterwards. It feels like I’m talking to a wise and experienced friend. I love his advice and I really take it to heart. He’s wonderful! I definitely recommend Buddy!
Buddy is the best!
Buddy is the most fitting name possible.
Buddy is a wonderful listener with tons of life experience, passion, patience, and perspective.
If you are fortunate enough to make it on his schedule you are blessed!
He is amazing and I love our sessions. It’s like talking to an old friend! Just fantastic.
Buddy is great! His examples are wonderful, he is incredibly patient and he never judges you for your decisions only councils you on them. Truly a life changing person
What I appreciate is Buddy says things that makes sense and makes me look at things differently. Also he is easy to talk to.
I like him because he is understanding and down to earth. I can relate to him and he seems to get what I'm talking about. He gives me great things to think about and he is very encouraging. I feel safe in opening up to him with everything and don't feel embarrassed or uncomfortable. He put me at ease from the first session until the last.
Buddy and I are new in the therapeutic process, but already I really appreciate the fact that he is committed to helping me craft a better life for myself.
Buddy is making my first experiences with therapy free of my previous concerns or fears of what it “might be.” I feel heard and understood fully.
So loving, understanding, and very helpful. A counselor certainly blessed with the Holy Spirit who speaks God’s word into his counsel and affirms that God is present through your troubles. I would recommend Buddy to anyone in need of spiritual counsel!
Buddy is the real deal. He is the easiest person in the world to talk to and is very open. I feel like I’ve known him for 20 years.
Buddy's a great counselor, very caring and easy to communicate with. Lots of wisdom and knowledge.
Buddy cares about who I am and what my concerns are. His thoughts and recommended reading material have been very helpful in getting my stressors under control. I highly recommend him.
Buddy is willing and with the expertise and knowledge required to help.
He listens and looks constantly for the best way to help.
He is great.
Buddy is a tremendous counselor and person. He brings an energy and vitality to his work that is infectious. I genuinely look forward to our sessions because I always feel so appreciated and respected by Buddy.
I’ve seen so many therapists and Buddy is the only one that has truly helped me overcome my traumatic events. I’ve seen Buddy for a year and he has helped me through major grief and depression after I lost my father. He’s an amazing listener, really understanding and knows what advice to give based off each situation I have.
Buddy is everything we could possibly ask for in a counselor! A licensed therapist AND a retired church pastor. This man KNOWS people.
Buddy is great! He is quick to respond, sends great resources, and understands me.
Buddy Duncan is a good listener, gives great feedback, and is incredibly positive. He knows what he is doing, and has positively impacted the way i interpret the problems in my life. He knows how to make suggestions with out any force or judgment. He seems to really care about what he is doing, this is not just a job to him, he cares about people.
He’s so resourceful and kind. Thankful for him.
I’m so grateful to have met Buddy.
It’s been 10 months and he has been there to help me through this tragic time in my life by offering prayer and scriptures to lead me to God to help me through. I really appreciate him for allowing God to use him to feed the spiritual and mental aspect of my life thus making me whole.
I have had several calls with Buddy. I enjoyed each of them. At times I was very anxious and his calming nature and good tactics helped me overcome this.
He is a very good listener (remembers things for months!) and his solutions are practical. Overall would recommend Buddy.
It's early in our process, but Buddy is very responsive and insightful and offers plenty of food for thought.
First session with Buddy was better than expected. Very calm and inviting manner. I appreciated the peaceful tone in his voice.
I feel comfortable with Buddy, his help got to me in a point where I was lost and what I like about his approach is that he puts it in a way where I understand, acknowledge and make the necessary changes I need to go in order to have a better balance
Buddy Duncan. This man has been a God send. He's gracious and compassionate. Gentle and caring. A loving man, a friend when a friend is needed. I don't much see him as a counselor as much as I do a friend and confidant, a friend that is an amazing counselor. Thank you Buddy, much love.
What else can I say? Buddy is great. He offers me the support and guidance that I need in order to attain the insights I need to change my life for the better. In Buddy I find that I have a trusted counselor and advocate.
Buddy is great. He listens and responds with what you need to hear. It may not be what you want to hear but it is what you need. He pays attention to what you have discussed before and how it is relating to your everyday life. He truly gets to know who you are, and can help you learn about yourself and solve problems.
Buddy is my guide to changing my life. He has been a swiss army knife of help. He has helped with my marriage, self confidence, business struggles and development, anxiety, weight loss, and organization and optimization of my life. Two of the characteristics I love about Buddy.
1. He has this incredible ability of knowing when to talk and when to listen. He know when you need to hear some advice or truth to getting you moving in the right direction, but switches to listening at the perfect moment so you can get things out and make connections by saying things out loud.
2. Buddy is "therapy google". He always has the perfect book, article, video, quote, podcast, or person to follow for what you need and are working on. After every session he will send me a few resources to find just the information I need.
He's easy to schedule appt with and accommodating of what you need. Very positive and encouraging too. I have never done therapy before and had no idea what to expect and cynical of its effectiveness. Therapy has helped far more than I ever could have imagined. I am getting my life back on track and doing more than I thought possible.
Thank you for all of your help, Buddy!
Buddy was the perfect choice for me. He has the experience and insight to understand my issues.
I was very impressed with Buddy's insight and knowledge.
Buddy is a complete professional, as somebody who has always been skeptical of therapy, Buddy immediately made me feel at ease and was able to help me articulate my exact concerns. I would highly recommend Buddy to any of my friends. Everybody needs a Buddy.
Buddy is incredibly helpful. He has a wealth of knowledge, resources, and quotes that seem to illustrate and address exactly what I am experiencing. He provides insight and alternate considerations without telling you what to do (darn it!). Buddy is an active listener and seems to be able to articulate exactly what I might be thinking or trying express - even when I cannot express it concisely myself. He seems to have a never ending resource bank of books and coaching methods that he relies upon to support my needs. I can not recommend Buddy highly enough - select (and share) with confidence!
