I hold a master's degree in Education and Counseling. I have spent 28 years in education and 7 years in clinical counseling. My clinical experience has introduced me to counseling with adults. I enjoy CBT and Choice theory as the clients become aware of chices and can talk out their next steps. So many times, we don't understand that we have all the tools we need to allow us to be successful in our jobs, our relationships, and our lives. By exploring clients' worldview and what strengths they already possess, they discover how to make choices that put them in control.

I would highly recommend Marie Dickson to anyone, especially those seeking faith-based counseling. She's very down to earth, encouraging, and gives me the tools I need to help me grow closer to where I want to be.

I felt stuck, unable to continue dealing with a loss of my husband. Also felt crushed by this hate in our world without him here. I reached out to Better Help asking for a Christian Therapist. Marie brought me back to life. She is genuine. She taught me how to let go of the past without guilt and shame. And move on. She taught me how to ignore the hateful. One day at a time.

Marie Dickson is an amazing therapist. She is an excellent listener and will let you just spill your heart out about all your pent up feelings if you’d like her to, offering input only at occasional moments of rest or at moments of importance. She’s exceptional, makes you feel welcome, and I highly recommend her

Marie is such a great listener and is very caring towards my struggles. She speaks very gently, and uses her words wisely. She’s also a joy to see every time and gives off such great vibes. She’s very understanding and takes the time to check in throughout the week which I appreciate! I recommend her as a therapist, 10/10!
