About

Hi I'm Derrick. Do you feel like no one around you understands you the way you'd like to be understood? Do you feel like you're dealing with things that could be easier with a better sense of clarity? Sometimes our ability cope with stress, anxiety, depression, or malaise is tested to its limits, I'd like to be here for you so you don't have to go through this alone. Whatever your individual situation is, I'd like to help you along the direction you feel you'd like to go. Your safety is important. I offer a safe space that serves as the foundation of building trust and a unique experience for "You".
I LISTEN. I understand and acknowledge that every person is different and deserves individualized/personalized care. I'm comfortable using many approaches to therapy, but primary goal is to learn and understand you with the intent of forming a healthy therapeutic relationship. From there, we can figure out what you need and what works best for "You".
Placing myself on this platform required me to address and overcome some ambivalence(ngl, felt a bit weird), but here I am. Thanks for viewing my page, and taking what may prove to be a necessary action step towards the solution(s) you may be seeking. You're likely on your way to a healthier, more vibrant and insightful "You".
