Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Melissa Dickinson "I view therapy as an opportunity to develop healthy relationships where you can grow and explore new opportunities without judgement. I offer individual and relationship counseling services for adolescents & 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 healthier ways of being.

When we meet, I will take the time to get to know you. My space is informal and friendly (I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of therapist), with my furry four-legged colleague Ollie to greet you.

It is my honor to work with a diverse clientele (i.e. ethnicity, gender, sexuality, spirituality, disabilities, LGBTIQ, etc). I have expertise in Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Support/Advocacy as well as specialized training in gender and sexuality issues via AASECT. I am kink-aware/friendly."

Patient Comments (11)

Fair psychotherapy skills, but lacks focus. Appears to be only interested in talking about specific topic that likely appear to her. Furthermore, she has poor time management skills.

Melissa is wonderful! I have been a patient of Melissa's going on four years and I am very happy with the level of care and service she provides.

Melissa is warm, thoughtful, and comfortable to talk to. However, she will quickly point out problematic coping techniques gently and kindly. I highly recommend Melissa and all of those in her practice.

Therapy is a very personal, private experience and I imagine that is different for everyone. Melissa has created an environment that is safe and welcoming, and it doesn't take long before it is your environment - not just one that she has created for you. She gives you the space needed to walk your...more

I have been working with Melissa for several months and she's been an absolute joy. No matter how odd my concern may seem to me (or others) I've never felt judged or belittled. She's been very supportive of my journey in life and I don't think I'd be quite as sane without her guidance over these...more
