Mental Health Therapist at Synergy Immediate Care

Derek Russell

Mental health therapy is the branch of medicine that focuses on improving a patient’s emotions and well-being in healthy ways.  The goal of a mental health therapist or counselor is to work with an individual to promote optimum mental and emotional health.  They may also assist the management of issues associated with depression, anxiety, phobias, family, parenting, and martial problems.  

At Synergy Immediate Care, our on-site mental health therapist, Derek Russell, is a licensed clinical mental health therapist with many years of experience in the field.  Since joining Synergy Immediate Care in 2018, he has worked with patients with cognitive behavioral techniques and focuses on identifying and building a patient’s strengths, resources, and support network.

Derek does not participate with any insurance plans. However, he does provide a detailed “superbill” for patients to submit for reimbursement from their insurance companies. Many health insurers will provide payment directly to the patient. Please make sure to check your insurance benefits to see what level of coverage your plan provides.
