Meet Our Provider Dawn Dickson
I am trained in psychodynamic theory and practice, shamanic psychology, mindfulness-based end-of-life care practitioner work, attachment-focused Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and sand play therapy. We live in a beautiful yet challenging world, and as such, traumatic experiences are common. I provide trauma-informed psychotherapy to help clients navigate the turbulence trauma can bring. I believe that parts of the self are split off when a trauma occurs, so I see psychotherapy and the psychedelic journey as a kind of soul retrieval process. I completed a ketamine-assisted psychotherapy training with Telos Transformational Therapies in 2022. I have been a seeker of psycho-spiritual practices since 1998 and have worked with indigenous healers in the U.S. and the Peruvian Andes. I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology (1991) and a master’s degree in social work (1993) from the University of Washington.
I have a deep love for this earth we have the honor to inhabit. I am enthralled by the written word and have a large library in my home (which can sometimes turn into piles of books on the floor and furniture!). I have travelled extensively and love music and the culinary arts. I cherish the relationships I have cultivated and believe that laughter is powerful medicine. I am deeply interested in all matters of the soul and would be honored to accompany you on your journey.
