Melissa Dickinson, MS, LPC 

Professional Counselor, Psychotherapist and Creative Person

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 healthier ways of being.

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 therapy will take. My space is informal and friendly (I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of therapist), with a four-legged friend to greet you (pictured to the left, learn about Ollie in the About Me section).

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. 

I'm honored to have a mostly full practice currently. If we haven't worked together before and you need support in the Decatur area, I am able to recommend several trusted colleagues or discuss a waiting list.

Those seeking Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders support 

are encouraged to contact me for consultations.
