GET TO KNOW MY THERAPIST
Deirdre Eberhart, LCSW
Deirdre has been practicing therapy for ten years. She obtained her B.A. in Psychology in 2009 and Master of Social Work in 2011 from Binghamton University.
Deirdre has a special interest in helping those who have lived through trauma. With Deirdre's trauma-informed approach to therapy she helps those seeking guidance to increase their coping skills, reduce their stress, and foster resilience.
Deirdre's approach is a gentle one. Each individual receiving therapy from Deirdre will get a tailored approach.

This list of approaches will never be complete. Deirdre is always educating herself to gain more resources in order to best meet the needs of her clients.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR VISIT
We start therapy with the initial intake session. This session is usually 90 minutes and is very structured. We overview your history so that I can give you the best care possible for the rest of the time you are in therapy with me.
Right now, due to COVID-19, I am primarily seeing clients by video chat. I utilize a HIPAA compliant video service designed for therapy called "doxy.me" - It works by me sending you a link to your email address or your cellphone (your choice). You click the link and you are in. No downloads are required.
Video chat does require a stable internet connection. If you do not have I am able to do therapy sessions by phone.
