About Me

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Connecticut with over 20 yrs. experience in areas that include trauma, anxiety, parenting challenges, ADHD, autism, racism, varying levels of depression, grief and loss and emotional/psychological impacts of the pandemic. Specifically, some of my work experiences have been in an outpatient clinic, working with homeless, all school aged children, coordinating a trauma first responders' team, adults and family situations that including grief and loss related challenges. I interact naturally with a friendly and professional style. Honesty and giving my undivided attention in each session is part of who I am as a therapist. Expect that sometimes and sometimes not you may hear what you want to hear in our session. I believe everyone deserves an abundance of respect and not to be judged or treated unfairly. Anyone that wants help, takes the time to seek out help deserves a compassionate, sincere and professionally motivated response. This is something I can do. Utilizing my professional training and experiences couples with my life experiences we can get to the other side with positive outcomes.

I have a natural thinking process that's aligned and targets restructuring thought processes that are harmful. I believe people who desire can little by little adjust the thought patterns that are creating the most challenges in their lives to more positive routines of thought. It's essential to take the necessary journey aimed at improving the quality of your life. Take pride in reaching out the right way for support. Share this portion of your journey with me. I offer the best of my personal life and professional experiences to guide us to the other side or to the healthier thought processing.



Let's start the conversation and move toward improving whatever thought processes that may be getting in your way or holding you back from where or who you want to be.
I'm excited to meet you and look forward to our future conversations.

Good job for taking the step to a healthier you!

In the meantime, take care and stay safe.

I’m new to therapy and Ethel has already been so helpful. She’s so easy to talk to and gives me ways of dealing with issues I’m having outside of our sessions, which has been very valuable.

I really enjoy talking with Ms. Dickerson. She makes it really easy to talk to her and have a great conversation. I am truly grateful we connected and have a great report. I never thought this would be as helpful and needed as it has been. Thank you Ms. Dickerson!

Ethel is exactly who I needed to assist me through this time in my life. Ethel is understanding yet challenges me to look positively at myself during a time that it's difficult to do so. I look forward to speaking to her each week!

Ethel is a great person, and I like her but I'm looking for something a different in a therapist.

Ethel is particularly amazing as a therapist because of her wisdom. She openly, and honestly shares all of herself with you as a therapist and I feel, at least for me, that having this sort of transparency in communication makes it easier to open up about what I feel. She holds no judgements, and is very receptive to what you say. She will ask you questions, and tells you what you need to hear - not always necessarily what you want to.

I’m therapy averse, and Ethel has completely changed my outlook on therapy. A GEM.

Written by C.O. on Mar 24, 2022 after therapy with Ethel for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and relationship issues

Ethel was very sympathetic with my situation and offered great advice to help me resolve my issues and talk me off the ledge.

Ethel is very kind, positive, and easy to talk to. She asks the right questions. She is tough when she needs to be but also knows when to not push too hard. Thank you.
