About Me

Hello!

My therapy approach is a combination of solution based counseling and cognitive behavioral counseling with some positive psychology. I have more than 20 years of experience working with this age group and enjoy their spirit and how they navigate through this developmental stage to become young adults. I also enjoy helping parents finding positive solutions to assist these teens on their journey. In addition, I have worked in the foster care area and in the schools with the children teaching parents, teachers and other professionals ways to reduce any negative symptoms and help the teens succeed.

Deidre is very warm and nonjudgmental. Even when we disagreed she’s never made me feel invalid. Sometimes I feel like I’m talking to a friend/mentor when I’m with her, which is different from other therapists I’ve had, and that warmth has helped soothe my soul when I was feeling lost. She’s never told me what I have to do but she’s guided me there with gentleness. She’s seen me cry and never made me feel like she pitied me, never any awkwardness, she’s always maintained a firm, loving energy, a safe space. Thank you for everything Deidre

I absolutely love her! It was easy to open up to her with her personality. She doesn’t sit there and ask “well how does that make you feel” for an hour. We have all kinds of conversations. She makes therapy easier and doesn’t force a talk. She also brings music a lot into therapy. Which is so helpful. She is very open minded and compassionate. A wonderful therapist!

Deidre
You have helped us through what I believe is the most trying time I have ever been through in my 47 years. Your guidance and advice was invaluable to save our marriage. I cannot express the gratitude that I feel for what you have done for BEM and I. In all sincerity from the bottom of my heart thank you.

Deidre has helped me so much already; she's helped me build skills to improve my life and relationship that I would've never figured out on my own. At this point I'm ready to start tackling deeper personal issues– I'm definitely still scared but I'm confident that Deidre will help me through it.

I was very nervous to start talking to someone about the issues in my life, but Deidre is amazing at making you feel at ease! I've only had a couple video sessions with her, but she's offered so much help that I would've never figured out on my own that's made my life easier. I'm so thankful I gave this a chance, and I'm so thankful for Deidre!

Desire is very nice & understanding. She's considerate of both parties feelings. She's fair and respectful. I appreciate her assistance as we work through this difficult time.

She is kink friendly and respects your wishes. She is open to listen about different lifestyles and never judgmental. The perfect therapist for individual therapy as well as couples therapy.
