Dr. Derick Anderson, PsyD and Jim Soda, MA, LMHC

The Founder of Invictus Performance Inc, Dr. Derick Anderson is a licensed clinical psychologist who has been in practice for over two decades. Dr. Anderson began his career in performance psychology working with the Miami Dolphins under Coach Jimmy Johnson. After three years of working with the team, Dr. Anderson continued his career in sports as a consultant for the NFL.

Opportunities with the U.S. Army Pacific Command and the Army Corps of Engineers drew Dr. Anderson away from sports for a time to develop leadership and communication skills for civilian and military leadership. Transitioning from working with the Military back to working with the civilian sector, Dr. Anderson began working with the U.S. Marshals, FBI, Interpol, and the Internet Crime Against Children Unit (ICAC). In his role with these organizations, he provided Wellness strategies for investigators and provided profiles of child predators and other violent offenders. Over time, other interesting opportunities presented themselves within the state prison system, alcohol and drug rehabilitation industry, and corporate consulting.

Jim Soda is a licensed clinician with over 15 years of experience working with sports performance and mental health. Jim started his sports career in broadcasting, working for ESPN radio in Orlando and Tampa. Jim spent 5 years working with the Tampa Rays before transitioning into residential substance use disorder and mental health treatment. Jim spent the next decade working as a therapist, director, and eventually starting a center for young men in early recovery.

With two masters degrees, one in Vocational Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from The The University of South Florida, and one in Sports Psychology from Ashford University, Jim has been able to work in both crisis management and performance improvement. Jim is a solution-focused therapist who believes that the mental strength skills needed to succeed in the high-performance world, can also benefit those needing to turn their life around. Jim has spent a large part of his treatment experience working in adventure and activity-based therapy with young adults. This experience has benefited him greatly when it comes to his more recent work with Major League Baseball, the NBA the NHL, Red Bull, and his private practice work with athletes in South Florida. Jim is Certified as a Mental Performance Consultant.
