Knowledgeable Palmetto, FL Psychologist
I am the proud founder of Manatee Associates of Counseling & Assessment. My life pursuits have been aimed at utilizing the gift of being a psychologist to provide individuals with healing through counseling. I believe one of the best ways to reach healing is through a therapeutic relationship. How I foster this relationship is by being genuine and authentic with each of my clients, so they feel comfortable and safe within the therapeutic relationship.
How Dr. Dixon Helps
I approach the therapy process with a client-centered theoretical orientation and a lens of respect. I know that people often come into therapy with specific things they would like to discuss, and when they do, I follow that lead. When individuals enter this process uncertain of what they need, I collaboratively and empathically meet them where they are, and together, we explore factors that may be contributing to their current experiences.
When people are facing one of life’s storms, they may feel disappointed and discouraged. My goal is to help individuals fight discouragement and disappointment by finding hope even in the midst of a storm. If you are facing one of life’s storms and finding it hard to have hope, I am willing to hold the hope for you until you can carry it on your own.
