Deidre Pilcher, LGMFT
Philosophy and Approach:
I am a firm believer that relationships are so often the key to how we experience life. These relationships create the backdrop and much of the plot for how we craft the story of our lives, through both success and struggle. In relationship to others, we’re able to see ourselves and discover our truths. From this framework, I enjoy accompanying individuals, intimate partners, and families on their journey to leading rich and fulfilling lives as their most authentic selves. I am dedicated to creating a welcoming space for people of all sexual orientations, genders, races, spiritual and religious experiences, ethnicities, and relational styles to feel at home and understood. I value authenticity, growth, presence, and the diverse life experiences that bring us together. Through formal education, ongoing training opportunities, and lived experience, I have a firm understanding of a truly diverse range of clients’ lives and experiences, including life transitions, parenting, entrepreneurship, religious transitions, sexuality, and LGBTQ and consensually non-monogamous relationships.
Who I am:
I believe in doing my own work. I invest in myself and my relationships in many of the same ways I work with my clients. I am a partner, a mom, a daughter, a sister, and a loyal friend. I grew up in Maine but have spent much of my adult life living all over the country, from the South to the West coast, and even Hawaii. I settled in Maryland over 6 years ago and now consider it home. I love music and concerts and play some guitar. I also enjoy sports, particularly football. I value nature and mindfulness and a good dose of casual humor.
