About Me

Hello and welcome!

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California, Washington and Idaho, and have provided therapy and support for adults for the past 10 years. My history includes working with people transitioning and adjusting to new life stages and circumstances, as well as those who have concerns including depression, anxiety, and coping with histories of trauma. In addition I have worked providing therapeutic support for people who provide support to others, such as caretakers and therapists.

My counseling style has been described as warm, affirming and genuine. I believe very strongly in treating others with respect and dignity, and in staying with the client's needs and desires for counseling. My approach integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Therapy as well as assisting clients in understanding their own emotions, motivations and in determining their own choices and life path. Most importantly I believe that each of us has a unique personality and something of value to share.

You've already taken the first step in reaching out for support in meeting your needs and your goals for your mental health, wellness, and life, and I would love to help you with the next steps.

So far she is so responsive and helpful! She really gave me relief from feeling selfish and dramatic, she reassured me my feelings are valid and is teaching me tools for coping and working through anxiety.

Very grateful to have found Dee. She has been so helpful in guiding me thru years of buried pain and trauma. She is kind, supportive, respectful and encouraging. And she's so wonderful about checking in with me when I don't have time to reach out - bc my habit is to make myself a last priority. But her checking in helps me make space for myself. So glad to have her help navigating thru all of my complex emotions right now.

Deirdre is an exceptional listener. She is supportive, calm and kind. I've only had a couple of sessions with her, but have felt immediately safe. I definitely recommend her.

She is an amazing counselor! She empathizes and shows she cares. I really enjoy talking to her. The only recommendation is to reply more often during the day but completely understand that caseloads are high currently!

Deirdre has been very helpful in first providing questions that bring out the problems I'm facing in a way we can set up goals. Secondly she has been a great source for active excercises and providing me with helpful worksheets to work towards my goals. Overall she is very pleasant to talk to, replies with helpful feedback that I can really use, and is very supportive.

Written by R.I. on Mar 10, 2020 after counseling with Deirdre for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

I was curious, but hesitant trying BetterHelp. I've done in person counseling in the past with success, but there's always challenges such as time constraints and income which makes it difficult to continue.

Deirdre has been an absolute blessing in my therapeutic journey! She's been working with me for almost 6 months now and has been wonderful guidance. There's so many hoops we go through in life and many times we just need someone to talk to about how we feel. She's warm, compassionate, understanding. She also has a lot of strategies up her sleeves. She responds in a very timely manner and recognizes when you need more support. I appreciate having her and I look forward to my continued work with her. Thanks Deirdre!
