Kristin Duncombe, MSW, MPH
Psychotherapy and Health Education

The therapeutic relationship is a joint effort between client and practitioner to explore the problems and concerns that the client wishes to resolve. I am a clinical social worker with a background in behavioural health. In my practice, I use an eclectic approach, which means that I draw from my training in relational, cognitive-behavioural, solution-focused and psychodynamic therapy to understand and respond to client’s diverse needs. Although every client-therapist relationship is unique, I have outlined here a seven-step process to give you an idea of how our work together may evolve:

  • Expressing and exploring your feelings around the issue(s) that have led you to therapy

  • Understanding those issues in the context of the larger portrait of your life -past, present and future

  • Navigating your present situation by exploring your questions and options

  • Identifying problematic patterns and their origins

  • Finding alternative strategies and approaches

  • Setting realistic goals and clarifying a direction for the future

  • Examining progress

I have fifteen years of clinical experience with individuals and families in the United States, Kenya and France, and have worked successfully with a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, adjustment difficulties, eating disorders, substance abuse and relational problems.

I am from the United States, but grew up in Africa and Asia, and have lived as an expatriate most of my life. If you would like to make an appointment, please call or email me to set up an interview.
