Lee Anne Dickerson, PsyD
Associate of Arbor Cove Therapy, LLC / Owner of Watermark Psychological & Consulting Services
Lee Anne Dickerson, PsyD, was raised in a home that was very active in ministry to children and the poor. This fostered a special love in her heart and passion for children and families. She brings two generations of wisdom into her practice, which continues to help children and families foster healthy connections and repair broken relationships. When working with Dr. Dickerson, parents can expect to be welcomed into a warm, supportive, and collaborative working relationship. Children will find she delights in their individuality and will work toward solutions and growth in a fun and engaging way.
Dr. Dickerson has extensive experience working with foster and adoptive families in both child welfare agencies and private practice. She recognizes the unique needs of the child, the parents, and additional siblings in the home. Seeing the need for social support for these families, Dr. Dickerson developed a day camp for adoptive families utilizing the TBRI model and equine assisted therapy. Dr. Dickerson also provides psychological testing for foster and adoptive children. Testing provides diagnostic clarification and practical recommendations for parents, care givers, and child care workers. Dr. Dickerson believes it is a privilege and honor to be a part of telling each child’s story and providing assistance for their care and healing.
Dr. Dickerson moved to Georgia in 2017 and lives in Woodstock with her husband and son. She is learning about the importance of SEC football and using her WAZE app to get through traffic. She was already a Chick-fil-A super fan before arriving in the Peach State!
