My Approach to Helping
We are all born with the capacity for wholeness and yet when people get hurt, they lose parts of themselves. We can restore our full sense of self through a bodymind connection and healing in relationships. As such, I am certified in Gestalt Therapy and Imago Relationship Therapy.

Most insurance's will be able to reimburse you for services as we are considered "out of network'. You would need to pay for services rendered, then would simply submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. A receipt with all necessary information (diagnosis & CPT codes) will be given to you to submit. You may want to check with your insurance company to ensure you what amount you would be covered as each insurance carrier is different.
We do have clients with many types of insurance who are able to submit and get reimbursement. Please call them and double check. My ID # is 09238-6175 and my NPI# is 1972704518 and it might be listed under B. Duffy Spencer.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My passion is to work with people who are suffering from addictions...all kinds. Not only the obvious ones like drugs and alcohol, but food, shopping, excessive TV watching, computer gaming, etc. We have the capability to step out of our addicted self into our healthy self.
