Candace Dickinson

MA, LMHC

Candace Dickinson was born in Colorado but moved around the country including North Carolina and Virginia where she attended Bridgewater College in Bridgewater, VA, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. While in her bachelor’s degree she received training in Applied Behavioral Analysis and was the president of Psi Chi, the Psychology Honors Society. She then attended Boston University School of Medicine and obtained her Masters of the Arts in Mental health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine.

Candace has worked as an individual therapist, community-based clinician, residential clinician, and clinical director for a residential program. She specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for the treatment of a variety of mental health concerns. Candace is certified to provide EMDR, or Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy. Candace can even use EMDR therapy remotely while treating trauma and other symptoms that involve reconnecting with images, feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations associated with the trauma. EMDR uses rhythmic left-right (bilateral) stimulation to assist individuals in recovering from trauma and other painful life experiences. Throughout her career she has worked with bipolar disorder, thought disorders, complex trauma, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and substance use disorders.

Candace believes that changing our habits and behaviors starts with changing our thoughts by recognizing unhelpful thinking, identifying innate resilience, and rewriting the way people talk to themselves. While working with Candace she will collaborate with your providers, and assist you in identifying balance in your life, as well as changing the way you see yourself and the world to be healthier and more fulfilling.
