Hello, I am Darrell Patterson Does your life seem to be dictated by everything around you except for you and the things you want and love about being able to be fully you without shame, guilt or apology? I assist people with centering or recentering their thoughts around their intentions, their attentiveness and their mindfulness in healthy and helpful ways to live life on a win-win basis. Together, we can identify what is healthy and helpful to your intentions giving you the ability to set a path that is supportive of you and the intentions you have for success in all areas of your life (mentally, emotionally, spiritually, socially, financially and so on). We will explore a love for your whole self approach to address the areas of yourself that are not currently a welcomed part of the whole. Whether you are experiencing feelings of being overwhelmed, relationship issues or cycles of anxiety and depression, I am here to assist you. Seeking therapy can feel uncomfortable but you are making a conscious choice to regain the best version of yourself. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. I believe the most important thing about therapy is being compassionate and introducing evidence-based techniques and interventions so you can overcome the adverse experiences that have become hindrances to your intentions for a healthy and happy life. Let's work together to find your win-win path and village.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session we explore presenting issues and concerns through the Client's perspective. We then walk with the Client through the Client's understanding of what the Client most want to be and do with the gift that the Client is in life, relationship and other areas of functioning important to the Client. We want to assure each Client that the win-win perspective is taught and adhered to throughout the therapeutic process.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I am a faith-based Counselor and I specialize in the healing and restoration of the entirety of the Client. I am not a judge and have no room to Judge for I also am a broken and flawed masterpiece being held together by the grace which can and will meet each of us where we are. I am a proponent of healthy homes, families, individuals, couples, relationships and life as a whole. I chose a win-win culture and a give-give relationship pattern for all the people I interact with in every area of my life. I want to help each Client build their very own village that nourishes and restores them from the damaging experiences (traumas) our society and world infect us with consistently. I also enjoy and can work well with Children, adolescents and seniors in all areas of distress and discomfort.
