Derek Bacharach, LPC

About Me

I wish I could call myself a "Post-Traumatic Growth Specialist" because this is what I do the most as a psychotherapist:

  • I am a compassionate witness to how your trauma impacted you

  • I am a provider of education about trauma

  • I am a catalyst to the process you can undergo in your relationship to yourself

  • I will teach you tools to begin or to maintain post-traumatic growth.

What's more important than the therapeutic relationship you will have with me will be relationship you will have in yourself.

I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of New Jersey (#37PC00750900) and I am a Level 2 Certified Clinical Trauma Professional for Complex Trauma.  I am committed to helping individuals and couples learn how to work through and better manage traumatic issues that  interfere with their lives. 

To get started, I encourage you to schedule a free telephone consultation so I can learn more about you and your situation as well as answer any questions you may have. You can call me at 732-242-4548 or email me My office is located in Montclair, NJ. I am also available for telehealth sessions.

I offer psychotherapy for both couples and individuals. For couples, I offer the choice of two different session lengths. I also offer hour-long consultations to either individuals or couples to determine if therapy is the right fit.
