The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination

What Makes Us Different?

SpringSource Psychological Center is a private practice for individuals, couples, families, and adolescents. We are comprised of two Ph.D. licensed clinical psychologists and a team of clinicians who delve into primary research, publish or work closely to implement a shared vision for helping individuals and families heal in an innovative, intuitive psychological environment.

At SpringSource, we believe that there are many paths to healing. Our goal is always to help the individual get back on their feet to lead a fulfilling life free from stigma and shame while improving their quality of life.

What Our Colleagues Are Saying?

“These two women lead with grace and humility. I remember meeting them for the first time more than 10 years ago during an interview and recall thinking, I really want to work with these tremendously gifted clinicians. I could learn so much from both of them. Since then, I have ‘grown up’ professionally under their wings and still (after all this time) wake up every day feeling profound gratitude for their mentorship.”

Dr. Andi Stone, PsyD – Clinical Psychologist, Chicago, Illinois

“To be an effective therapist requires having one of these three qualities: a natural ability to be empathic, warm, and insightful; a profound understanding of the inner life of complicated human beings; and knowledge, gained from top-quality training, of the best techniques and approaches. A few, really exceptional therapists have all of these qualities. Angela Derrick and Susan McClanahan are among those few.  I can speak with confidence of their professional and personal excellence from having known them well for more than 15 years.”

James W. Anderson, Ph.D. – Professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois

“I have known Dr. Derrick and Dr. McClanahan for 15 years, and had the pleasure of working with them as colleagues, as well as referring patients to each of them over the years. Dr. Derrick and Dr. McClanahan are collaborative, compassionate, highly knowledgeable and exceptionally skilled psychologists who have always been a trusted referral option. I look forward to continuing to refer to each of them as I trust them to provide exceptional patient care.”
