I am a licensed professional counselor with over 13 years of experience working as a mental health counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, substance abuse, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse, although I am not certified in any specific trauma.
My counseling style is open, interactive, and directive specifically as it relates to homework assignments that can keep the client actively working on themselves before their next session. I treat everyone with respect, concern, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I have worked with young adults and geriatrics in dealing with depression, anxiety, and grief issues. I have worked well with teens for over thirteen years and help them to build their self work, mock interviews, teens assigned to a probation officer. I am excited about the client/counselor experience and assisting the client in fulfilling goals while taking the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you by phone, video, and texting/messages.

Incredible therapist. He doesn't jump to pathologies, he doesn't judge, he creates a warm environment for self-improvement, and I've never felt better. Thank you, Derrick.

Derrick has been a blessing! He seems to get my needs and has been helpful in sharing skills to reduce my stress and improve my mood overall. He has even given me good ideas for a podcast that I have been working on even though that's not why I am there. Very insightful!!!
