Headway

Deirdre Drohan Forbes

Welcome and congratulations on choosing a path to wellness. I've been practicing in the field of Mental Health and Addiction for almost 20 years. I'm a born and raised New Yorker with a keen understanding of what it takes "to make it here." As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker / Psychotherapist I am oriented toward treating the individual, couple or family as a whole. Utilizing a variety of evidence based practices such as Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic, Positive Psychology, DBT and CBT we will work together to find the best path forward which will allow you to reach your goals in a safe, supportive environment.


This is my second career. After leaving the field of journalism to raise my children I determined I wanted to work more directly with people so I returned to school and developed my practice. My clients have told me they have found me to be "warm, understanding, non-judgemental but truthful and direct."


I look forward to meeting and working with you.
