Buddy Duncan

(MA, LPC, NCC)

About Me

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.

Written by M.I. on Apr 18, 2020 after counseling with Buddy for 9 months on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and grief

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.

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.

Written by A.A. on Sep 18, 2019 after counseling with Buddy for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

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.

Buddy was the perfect choice for me. He has the experience and insight to understand my issues.

Written by C.H. on Jul 19, 2019 after counseling with Buddy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and anger management

I was very impressed with Buddy's insight and knowledge.

Written by D.A. on Jul 19, 2019 after counseling with Buddy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, addictions, and relationship issues

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.

Written by B.R. on Jul 18, 2019 after counseling with Buddy for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

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!
