About Me

Deirdre Ashton, LCSW is a relational therapist who is passionate about working with couples, families, and individuals to navigate life challenges and transitions and to live the lives they envision. She believes that we are all relational beings who are more likely to flourish when relationships are going well and to suffer when they are not. Deidre uses collaboration to activate and enhance clients existing strengths and relational resources to resolve difficulties and challenge structural obstacles in order to help them reach their fullest potential. Deirdre is dedicated to providing support for her clients struggling to address depression, anxiety, relational conflict, intimacy issues, and communication issues. She provides affirmative care to LGBTQ* individuals, families, and couples in the coming out process, negotiating multiple aspects of identity, growing and nurturing their families, thriving in a hetero and cisnormative world.
