About Me

Everyone struggles with something at some point in their lives. Sometimes, you need a little help to work through things and develop solutions. I want to walk that journey with you. I am not the expert in your circumstances, you are. But I can be a source of support for you as you work through things.

My name is Dorothy Hickerson and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I possess 19 years of experience in working with individuals, families, adults, couples and groups. I have experience working with couples of various ages and in different stages of their relationships. I am comfortable helping to address any issue. I work with clients from various backgrounds who are struggling with a variety of challenges. I can be a solid resource to you. I will work with you to help find solutions and make decisions that work for your relationship. I work hard to make sure my clients get the best possible service available to them. My intention is for both of you to feel like you've met progress toward the goals that we set together when our work began. You have the power to accomplish the things you want. I am just here to support you on that ride.

My approach is one of compassion and understanding. I avoid making judgments about people and their relationships. I simply view all people as worthy of living the best life possible. Video conferencing seems to work the best for most clients, as it allows us to see one another and read each other's expressions. However, I am happy to communicate with you in other manners as well (telephone, email, text messages for example). Whatever works best for you, works best for me. I am available on evenings and weekends to accommodate a variety of schedules. It would be my pleasure to work with you in the way that best meet your needs.

Written by R.E. on May 21, 2020 after counseling with Dorothy for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

Dorothy Hickerson has been a great support for my husband and I as we are working through some bumpy patches in our marriage. Immediately after our first session, we both felt lighter! Dorothy is helping us remember how much we care about each other and with her help, I know we will come out successful. She is a great listener and quick to pick up on our tones and body language. This helps us understand ourselves better and thus our partners. We are really enjoying the sessions.
