Dimica is aligned with the LGBTQIA+ community and strives to remain informed and socially conscious. Her clinical perspective is heavily framed by Emotionally Focused Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, and Somatic Attachment Experiencing. She is always making it a priority to learn. Presently, she’s increasing her knowledge about communicating and interacting with character disturbances.
Through both personal and professional experiences, Dimica has cultivated a flexible and shameless approach; always meeting clients where they are in their process.
