Derek Allen, LPC – Founder & Clinical Director
Hi, my name is Derek Allen and I am a licensed professional counselor. I have been providing therapy for over 12 years. I live in Gilbert with my wife and four amazing and busy boys. My responsibility is to provide individuals with quality treatment they deserve. It is my goal to guide them on a path to a more enjoyable life. Together, we will help you gain the tools needed to take control over your life. In addition, I help individuals take back the power over their debilitating or undesirable moods, thoughts, and actions. I especially enjoy helping individuals recognize that they are not alone or “abnormal,” and helping them have a better life.
I help provide relief from anxiety, anger, depression, hopelessness, and despair. I also help people recover from past trauma that debilitates them and creates a barrier to living a fulfilling life. Therapy can be a difficult process as it often makes people feel vulnerable. However, I work hard to create a safe environment and gain your trust. Trusting your therapist and feeling safe is important to the therapy process. So how do I provide this relief? I use therapy techniques called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).
Finding the right therapist is important and I hope that I can be that therapist for you. If I am not the right fit for you, that’s okay. I will help you find a good fit because it does not matter if you get help from me or someone else. You getting the right help is what matters most. So give us a call and schedule a time for us to chat. Let’s get you started on this empowering journey!
