Phone Number – 267-315-4173
Derek Pendleton has over 16 years of experience providing individual, family, and couples therapy to people of all ages and diagnoses. His areas of specialty include adult and adolescent Depression, Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Addiction (All Types), Anger Management, and Asperger’s Disorder, for which he utilizes his experience and training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, and Mindfulness Practices. In addition, utilizing Evidenced-Based Practices, Derek works well with families whose children struggle with behavioral and emotional problems, including diagnoses of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), and Autism. Derek believes that the relationship and trust built in therapy are the most important and necessary agents for meaningful, lasting change, and that compassionate care and collaboration are essential to your feeling validated and empowered throughout the process. Without these connections, even the most qualified and well-intentioned therapist may fail in attempting to help. As such, Derek devotes much time and energy in his sessions towards developing and enhancing therapeutic relationships, making sure to always listen carefully and empathically, so as to fully understand the sensitive issues discussed from your perspective and at your pace.
