He quickly puts you at ease and you feel comfortable talking about those things you never thought you could. I am so glad that I know Dr. Carl Dickerson is there when I need his help or just need him to listen..

Dr. Dickerson is awesome. He helped me through some really tough times. He is extremely knowledgeable and explains why things are they way they are while at the same time he is caring & empathetic. He gives practical therapeutic ideas & exercises to use for specific situations. He has helped restore marriages, but also has worked with lots of individuals with varying circumstances & situations. Highly recommend him!

As a former owner of a number of Treatment centers I understand what makes a center great. Baxter is the first person I call when I someone reaches out to me for help. Great staff, always puts client care first, and actually makes referrals to other centers around the country when the person needs a higher level of care. They are truly gifted when working with the yound adult population.

Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
