Melissa L. Dickinson

Counselor , MS , LPC

(706) 508-4993
I view therapy as an opportunity to develop healthy relationships where you can grow and explore new opportunities without judgement. I offer individual, relationship and family counseling services for adolescents and adults. My preference is to keep therapy "label-free", so that we can collaborate on making real progress on the issues standing between you and the life you desire. Labels can be limiting and my goal is to expand the possibilities for each person, relationship, and family that desires change and growth.
When we meet, I will take the time to get to know what makes you and your situation unique and together we'll what decide direction therapy will take. My space is informal and friendly, with the occasional four-legged friend to greet you.
It is my honor to work with a diverse clientele (i.e. ethnicity, gender, sexuality, spirituality, LGBTIQ, etc). I have specialized training in gender and sexuality issues via AASECT and am kink-aware/friendly. Check my website or call to book an appointment at my Roswell location near Hwy 400.
