Denise McDermott, MSW


My name is Denise McDermott.  I've enjoyed working with clients for over 27 years specializing in the areas of anxiety, depression, personal trauma and a host of other challenges life presents that can overshadow life's joy.


You are wise to prioritize time to find the joy in your life. 

Difficult experiences & feelings come... and go. They do not have to dominate. 

You deserve to wake up and be present to the gifts in your life. Therapy can be a crucial step toward this goal. It sets time aside from your busy life to focus on YOU! 

Nothing could be more important. Your life, starts with you.

When you work with me, you can expect a safe space to explore your unspoken thoughts, doubts and fears without judgement. We will collaborate on problem solving while building your sense of strength and joy.

I often incorporate mindfulness and meditation practices in my work with clients along with a variety of other evidenced based techniques such as talk therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and using a strengths based approach. My mode of therapy is determined by your unique story and need. Please feel free to call me with any questions. Be well.
