Derrick Loftus, office administrator

husband to allison, certified mindset coach

Derrick is in-charge of running the in and outs of Flourish. He is the guy you want to talk to regarding billing, insurance, appointment scheduling or how to hang plants from the ceiling. A true jack of all trades, he can run the numbers, fix just about anything, and cooks dinner every night for his family.  

He is a little more type A then the rest of the team at Flourish, but we find this easy to forgive since he has such a big heart for women’s mental health. He is a true gem of human being and we are so lucky to have him as part of the Flourish team.
