I have worked with many children who present with symptoms/behaviors such as inattention, anxiety, trauma, as well as a litany of other behaviors. I specifically used the phrase "who present with" due to the fact that most often, there lies something internal that is the seed of the behavior seen. In working with children/minors, etc., being able to build rapport is THE KEY. I believe this is a strength of mine and one that I'm delighted to utilize to help.

Derek is my teenage sons' therapist. In my opinion, Derek is highly skilled and very professional. He quickly engaged my teenage son on all manner of tough topics and my son reports that he feels really confident in Derek's abilities - its not easy to impress a teenager!
We worry about our young people so much, and evenmoreso during covid times. Having Derek on our 'team' is helping us to sleep better at night and we're very grateful to him.
Derek is great easy to talk with him.
