Patient Comments (7)
in Seaford, NY |
Deirdre has given me tools to help myself and see things about me that I would have never been able to do on my own. I've been able to confront things about myself and face them to become the person that I am today. It took A LOT of hard work on my end and she does not give the solution or advise. Dierdre guided, listened and had me figure out all the crazy in my life then helped me put it in perspective and move on. I was seeing Deirdre for many years and still see her on occasion to recharge.
Levittown, NY |
Understanding, smart, caring and totally reliable.
in Wantagh, NY |
I had the pleasure of meeting Deirdre on a personal matter and we instantly bonded. Besides her professional demeanor she is one of the most honest and caring persons I have ever met. No matter what struggles or life challenges you are facing she will put you at ease and make you feel happy and comfortable with your self. She is strong and kind-hearted and just has a way about her that makes you immediately take a liking to her.
in East Meadow, NY |
I have been going to Deirdre for four years. She is the best in the business.
in Levittown, NY |
I have had a positive experience working with Ms Diedre Holland. She has helped and assisted me to grow this past year. I would highly recommend her assistance and if she doesn't work out she can guide you to a therapist that can.
in Garden City Park NY |
She is very caring and insightful. She is always willing to work with her clients and be available. She has helped me tremendously with having better coping skills and recognizing my strengths. I always feel better after leaving a session and feel as if she is in invested in the progress I am making in therapy.
in Rockaway Park, NY |
Easy to talk too.
