Deirdre Branick

Clinical Coordinator

Deirdre Branick is a graduate of George Mason University, where she majored in Psychology. She volunteered with non profit organizations throughout school in Northern Virginia where she assisted and supported both adults and children with mental disorders. After she graduated she returned to her hometown, Hampton, VA, where she worked in Social Services along with other LPC's assisting women in low income communities who needed financial assistance, but specifically she along with her superiors, worked to help the clients emotionally. There they provided resources and help to the young women who faced trauma and hardships emotionally.  They supported the women as they continued to grow and advance, where they no longer required financial assistance. After spending several years there, due to Military orders, she along with her husband relocated to Florida, where she spent her first year there as an ESE teacher at a Title 1 School. There she worked with children with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, as well as Autism. She currently works at the VA Medical Center, assisting veterans with help in specific clinics as well as assisting them with consultations. Through these positions, she has learned about treatment plans and how to implement help to specific populations. She is currently completing her MSW at Virginia Commonwealth University. Her hopes are to one day become an LCSW and have her own practice, full of diverse women, where they will provide Behavioral Therapy and support to women and families of all backgrounds.
