About me

Hello, I am Darrell Patterson, a License Mental Health Therapist who has enjoyed the privilege and honor of accompanying others on their journey to achieve a psychologically good life. I wholeheartedly agree with the statement “… To deal with minds is the greatest work ever committed to men.” My experience over the past nine years as a mental health clinician has afforded me the opportunity to work with children and families incorporating cognitive behavioral and person-centered interventions proven to achieve positive outcomes.

There’s absolutely no doubt that life ushers in a host of issues that can easily trouble the heart, create anxiety, depression and other distresses that interrupt the happiness we all desire to enjoy in our lives. The good news is that there is good reason to be hopeful even if you’re not feeling it at this moment. That’s because the therapeutic relationship that consist of unconditional positive regard and trust provides an extraordinary space to train and educate every power of the mind and body.

My background and experience inform my world view and even though our world views may not sync perfectly, there is still opportunity to collaborate in helping to reconstruct positive narratives that define and achieve the quality of life we desire without settling for the pain of distress and unhappiness. I humbly acknowledge the value of wisdom supplemented by the academic achievements that equip me to render counsel and encouragement.

I received my undergraduate degree some years ago from Florida State University and enjoyed my first career endeavors as a Commissioned officer in The United States Army, followed by various occupations in the field of business and a corporate trainer before arriving at my authentic call of service to others. It was in 2012 that I graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University with a master’s in counseling and psychology. Virtually all my dedication has been devoted to helping other’s escape the entanglement of depression, anxiety and unresolved traumas. I’m happy to engage in a process of reasoning and healing.

Darrell Patterson is very relatable and comes back with the Word of God which is primary. Then natural applications come after. I appreciate that and am looking forward to my next session. - John Mazza
