Awaken and acknowledge your internal world. 

"Overcoming difficulties leads to courage, self-respect, and knowing yourself."- Alfred Adler

My name is Derick Chappell and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor providing in-person and tele-health services in Winter Park, FL. Clients find I am a calm presence, approachable, and listen well. Counseling provides a safe and confidential space to be yourself and speak about what is troubling you without judgment.


With my approach, I am able to help clients discover what they truly want and need. I work to equip clients with the tools they need to make meaningful and lasting changes.


Common difficulties I treat in my practice: family dysfunction, trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, family dysfunction, trauma, mens issues, procrastination, and general life dissatisfaction.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 

Do not believe everything you think! CBT provides an opportunity to challenge and defeat negative self-talk and negative beliefs. I am a TEAM-CBT therapist which is an certification from The Feeling Good Institute, a foundation that provides training and professional community based on the work of Dr. David Burns. 

Breathing Meditation

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) encourages people to embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty for them. It may seem confusing at first, but ACT paired with mindfulness-based therapy offers clinically effective treatment.
