A. Mike Duncan PsyD Resident
Mike earned his B.A. in psychology from the University of Colorado at Boulder and his M.S. and Psy.D. in clinical psychology from the Pacific University School of Professional Psychology.

Mike is under supervision with Karen Dimalanta, PsyD.
Individual, group, and family therapy.
Mike tailors his interventions based on the needs of his clients, and his work is trauma-informed. Therapy generally begins with primarily cognitive-behavioral interventions focusing on stabilization, immediate symptom relief, and coping strategies. As treatment progresses and Mike and his clients develop a stronger therapeutic relationship, he transitions to a more intersubjective, humanist-existential approach.
My goal is for my office to be a safe space for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and relationship styles. I consider myself a sex-positive therapist and strive to create a non-judgmental, accepting space for LGBT+ and queer-identified clients. I have experience working with families with both LGBT+ and queer-identified parents and children in addition to individuals across the gender, sexuality, and relationship spectrums. I strive to further my education and training in these particular areas and be a resource for the community through outreach and engagement.
