Heinz Kohut
Derek psychologist in Denver

Hi, I’m Derek, founder of

Midtown Counseling.

If you are looking for a psychologist in Denver, I am here to support you on your journey towards mental wellness. My approach to psychotherapy is person-centered with the ultimate goal of reconnecting you with society, your loved ones, and yourself. I strive to create a space where every client feels comfortable voicing immediate reactions and processing their emotions in real time.

Too often, clients are spoken about rather than truly heard. In times of distress, it is imperative that an individual takes an active role in planning their healing process. I welcome you to the office exactly as you are and work hand-in-hand with you as you move towards wellness, however that may look for you.
