About Me

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.

Derrick is fantastic. He’s a great listener and very thorough and clear with his advice. Gentle and considerate, and at the same time charismatic and personable. Couldn’t recommend him more highly!

Derrick is such a great listener and is always kind and helpful in his responses. After only 2 sessions he has already helped me a lot with things that have been worrying and upsetting me and I look forward to speaking with him more.

Dr. Singleton is a very good communicator and gives honest and true feedback to everything I’ve told him. He listens at the right time and response at the right time.

I had a really great experience with Derrick. He showed empathy, understanding and was very frank and direct. His straightforwardness was appreciated because it was wrapped in compassion.

I also want to add that Derrick is a great at reading my tone and body language because his approach worked very well and allowed me to feel comfortable opening up.

I am very happy that I was paired with a great therapist. I feel empowered to go forward.

Thank you!

I’ve enjoyed my sessions w Derrick. I feel like he really listens and understands what it is I’m expressing. He’s helped give me the tools I need to meet certain situations head on. I like that I have the option to zoom, text or call etc.

I was stressed about a big move on my life, Derrick listened and offered a variety of visual and breathing exercises to bring the joy up and stay focused. Feel ready and prepared. Thank you very much :)

I highly recommend Derrick to everyone who’s looking for a psychotherapist with experience and huge empathy. He’s extremely professional and he genuinely cares about you. The support is not only limited to the sessions but he encourages you to share with him your feelings and thoughts in a journal in between sessions too. I really feel that I have a safe place where I can open up and talk through my problems knowing that he’s always going to listen and provide his support with great expertise and professionalism.
I’ve had other psychotherapists in the past but Derrick is definitely the best.

My few sessions with Derrick have been a great start to using this platform. Derrick is kind, understanding, and a great listener. Our sessions are 100% judgment-free. It is obvious he has plenty of experience and cares about his clients. He often makes suggestions (for stress management, better communication practices, etc.) that have worked for him or other clients. I find his insights to be relatable, achievable, and beneficial.
