A Way Back Counseling

Derek Barney

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor located in Southern Utah and have been seeing clients since 2015. After struggling with substance addiction personally, I decided to go into this field to help people break the addiction cycle and find a way back to the life they want. Along with specializing in addiction, trauma, anxiety and depression, I’m also certified in SMART Recovery, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Brain Spotting.

For the past 15 years I’ve been working in the mental health field. Along with running my private practice, my day job is as a therapist at an adult addiction recovery center and the 11 years before that I worked with adolescents and their families. I love helping families and I’m thankful for a job that allows me to do that.
