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.
