People experience different levels of fear that might keep them from beginning therapy. Derek, first and foremost, creates a space that is open to healing the unique challenges people encounter.

Derek is able to utilize methods including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Trauma Therapy, and CBT strategies. He is also in the process of being trained in EMDR. This all contributes to creating a space where you can build resilience through a new, transformational narrative.
