Professional statement

Devon Lawrence is a social worker in Arlington, Virginia. He works with couples and adult individuals of all ages. Many of Devon’s clients come in to address anxiety, depression, addiction issues, relationship issues, and life transitions. Devon is particularly passionate about serving people who feel marginalized. He also has advanced training in the area of addiction.

Devon is trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and mindfulness, in which we look at thoughts, beliefs and choices, identify what is and is not working, and shift clients toward healthier practices. In session, Devon focuses on meditation, breathing exercises and grounding tools that can be utilized in stressful situations. This approach supports clients to feel more relaxed and clear-minded, empowering them to make decisions more closely aligned with their values.

Devon's style is relaxed, present, and non-judgmental. When clients first start therapy, he will provide a safe and comfortable environment where they feel heard and validated.

Devon received his MSW from Brigham Young University. He has worked at ChangePoint Integrated Health (community behavioral health clinic in northeastern Arizona), working as an outpatient therapist. Outside of private practice, He enjoys visiting national parks and other places of peace and beauty, and is passionate about social justice. Devon offers only remote therapy sessions at this time.


Message to clients

I believe that every person has the capacity to heal emotionally and to have a life that is meaningful and fulfilling. The fact that you are reading this tells me that you believe, or, at least, want to believe that as well. I know from personal experience how hard it can be to start the process of participating in therapy. But, I also know from personal experience the difference it can make. So, I hope to make it easier for you to begin the healing process.

My goal as a therapist is to make therapy a positive and deeply beneficial experience for every client I encounter. I honor your identity, individuality and your right to make your own choices, including what you do or don't do in therapy. I value your thoughts, feelings and experience, and will seek to see, hear and understand you as the person you are, and the person you want to become. Your story deserves to be heard and validated without judgment. I will offer therapeutic support, including tools, practices and helpful information, as you move toward your goals.

Although beginning the therapeutic process can take a lot of courage, it is my hope that, together, we can create a safe and nurturing space in which healing can occur. You deserve credit for making it to this point. The task at hand is to keep going.

I look forward to working together.
