Deirdre built First Step Therapy & Wellness Group from the ground up and has been hands on every step of the way. Her work ethic is indisputable and she is completely invested in creating a cohesive work environment adhering to values such as mutual respect and equality. She believes healthy doses of restraint combined with self discipline are key components to her success both personally and professionally. Deirdre is highly regarded by her peers and is a long-standing staple within the community where she is committed to creating a safe secure environment for her clients and colleagues. Ms. Holland currently maintains an established private practice
with a concentration on individual psychotherapy. Her ability for critical thinking makes her a formidable force as a businesswoman and within the mental health profession. Philosophy; allowing clients to verbalize themselves without interruption induces clarity and quelling distractions through active listening augments the clients ability to free associate. Once awareness and perspective intersect metamorphosis occurs
and disengagement from abusive symbiotic relationships, inflammatory environments, and toxic people/situations becomes attainable. When the client experiences the benefits of "emotional autonomy" their unhealthy behavioral patterns recede allowing room for change, growth, and acceptance. Deirdre's Core Principles: anonymity, privacy, confidentiality, reciprocity, self preservation, and independent thought, which is the pathway to self-sufficiency.
