Scott works with individuals, children, adolescents and families to overcome life challenges. He holds two graduate degrees: a M.S. in Human Services and a M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy. He is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider, and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional.

Scott works with each patient and family and uses strategies that are uniquely suited to their circumstances. Scott’s overall approach to theraphy is Systemic, meaning he considers the “big picture” and overall context in which the problems are occurring. Scott uses creativity, connection, humor, playfulness, and compassion to work with each patient where they are in the process of making changes. He especially enjoys working with individuals struggling with Anxiety, Depression, and various traumas. He believes, as it has been said, that what is most human is mentionable and that what is mentionable is manageable.

Coming to therapy can, at first, appear overwhelming and, perhaps, a little scary. It may help to remember that we are all on the journey of life and that what makes us most human is our need for others. Reaching out for help is a courageous step in moving toward a preferred life for you, your spouse, family, children and all those you love and care about.
