Molly Duncan, LMFT
Navigating the therapeutic process can be overwhelming for someone who is already struggling to make sense of their world. My goal is to make the therapeutic process easier by creating a safe, non-judgmental, and compassionate environment where clients can explore and find their authentic voice. When a client knows who they are, what they want, and how they feel, they can rekindle a personal relationship with themselves and find their authentic voice.
I create a strong therapeutic alliance by showing up with unconditional positive regard, and approaching all challenges knowing that there are viable solutions available. Helping clients achieve personal balance, reduced suffering, and increase in personal growth are some of the benefits of the therapeutic process.
I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, self-esteem challenges, personal growth, life transitions, communication, and relationship difficulties. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques and modalities which include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy to help clients reach their utmost potential. My orientation is client centered and strength based.
I have a deep understanding of the unique needs of First Responders and have a passion for working with them and their families. First Responders have a particular set of work challenges which can negatively affect their family and personal relationships. Unusually high stress levels and a difficult, ever-changing work environment coupled with job burnout and compassion fatigue can overwhelm and limit their personal functioning.
I received a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from Palo Alto University with a focus on Marriage and Family Therapy. Prior to working in private practice I worked in different agencies and worked with couples, families, and teens. In addition I was able to donate hundreds of hours to a high school in the Morgan Hill School District.
In my free time you will find me practicing yoga, enjoying the outdoors, and traveling abroad. Whether it is the ocean or the mountains, nature gifts always ground me emotionally and mentally. I enjoy being creative by painting, journaling, and doing collage.
