Hi, I'm Derrick. My practice is informed through a client centered framework designed to accommodate the specific needs of the individual.
Social Worker in ,
I use MI to help clients identify goals as well as the barriers to the achievement thereof. I provide the space to address ambivalence while ensuring clients never feel judged or evaluated.
I'm proficient in several modalities, but I find that there are many cases where not one EBT is more or less beneficial than the other. Instead, utilizing components of several as fitting to the client potentially yields more favorable outcomes.
With many things going on in life(sometimes happening all at once)anxiety, stress, and depression can make moving forward difficult. I aim to help increase client's mental/emotional flexibility, and provide them with an outlet to discuss feelings of angst or discomfort.
Extensive experience in working with clients who are dealing with symptoms of Depression. The ability to provide the space delve into how to restore drive and motivation, while seeking to gain knowledge about the impact of symptoms.
Formalized training in anxiety, the development and implementation of coping skills that better enable clients to regain a better sense of control and understanding.
