Melissa L. Dickinson, MS, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Decatur
Note: Accepting new clients on a limited basis during December and January. I see therapy as an opportunity to develop a healthy relationship with a professional who will allow you grow and explore new ways of being that "fit" you. I offer individual and relationship counseling services for older 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.
When we meet, I will take the time to get to know what makes you and your situation unique and together we'll decide what direction to go. My space is informal and friendly (I'm a jeans and T-shirt kind of therapist), and a furry colleague named Ollie.
Diversity is my passion (i.e. ethnicity, gender, sexuality, spirituality, LGBTIQ, etc). I have specialized training in gender and sex therapy via AASECT and am kink-aware/friendly. I work extensively with chronic illness. Check my website to learn more and give me a call. I look forward to connecting.
