Dr. Derek G. Turesky, Ph.D., PhD, Psychologist in Boca Raton
I'm a deeply caring, compassionate, and personable licensed psychologist with vast experience treating anxiety, panic, depression, relationship problems, and stress. I also have specialized training in mindfulness-based therapies (e.g., ACT), the mind-body connection, and frequently work with many clients struggling with stress-related physical problems (e.g., chronic pain, headaches, muscle tension). My clients range across the lifespan from college students and young professionals to older adults. Depending upon your needs, I'll work with you to create a customized plan in the context of a warm and nurturing atmosphere.
I know that it can be challenging to select the right therapist. To make this process easier, I will provide a free phone consultation to see if we are the right fit for each other. If I can't help you, I will help you find someone that can.
Credentials: I graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Emory University and was a presidential fellow at a top doctoral psychology program. I also worked in medical and psychological research at Harvard Medical School and the University of Iowa-Spine Center.
