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.

More Info About My Practice

The office is located in Westbury in Nassau County, NY.

Appointments can be seen Mon-Thurs; mornings, afternoon and evenings from 9:00 AM - 8:00 PM.
Occasionally, there is availability on Friday mornings and some Saturdays.
Appointments are for a 55 minute session, first session is $175, additional appointments are also 55 minute and the fee is $150 for the session.

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.

Credentials include a PhD (in social psychology) and a NYS LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counselor).
If you need further information, please feel free to call the office at 516-334-8985. If I am not in the office, please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

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.
