I have just begun working with Deidre, but I am already feeling much better. She is an excellent listener. I am very confident that working with her will allow me to address some deep seeded issues that I have previously been uncomfortable at working on. I cannot recommend her enough. She is a gem.

Patient, kind and caring! Deidre has made me feel heard. She listened to me and had my best interest even when I felt the world was against me! Meeting her weekly and then switching to every couple weeks, I’m thankful for every moment! People like Deidre have made me feel that I do matter. I’m thankful for her and the wonderful therapist she is!

Deidre is a great listener, she is attentive, she is honest, kind hearted, and I always look forward to speaking with her. She has made my first therapy experience a great one. When I decided I would be moving out of state, I was so worried I would need to find another therapist. Luckily, Deidre is licensed in the state where I am moving to and I feel so blessed!

Deidre is a concerned therapist. She also manages to be friendly and sometimes funny in a professional way. I am grateful to have her in my life at this time.
