"For the last several years I have provided therapy for adults who come in worried about their relationships to their loved ones, how they use substances, or who feel that it’s difficult to cope with their feelings of anxiety. My clients tend to describe me as relaxed, unconventional, and thoughtful in my style of practice. I work relationally which means that I believe the trust and understanding built in therapy is itself healing. My formal instruction is in harm reduction and mindfulness based stress reduction, however I am careful to make sure that the technique we use makes sense and can provide some clarity or relief."

"My experience comes from 23 years of helping children, adults, couples and families in both Community Mental Health and Private Practice. My approach is eclectic and tailored to each individual's needs to facilitate healing and growth. Through my years of experience I have witnessed over and over again people coming into therapy with great pain, discomfort and despair but with time, (sometimes within a very short time) their symptoms diminish and a whole new person emerges. Crisis times can be extremely painful and distressful but they can also be opportunities for growth and healing through therapy."

"Hi, My name is Scott. My interest in health and wellness began as a young adult after going through the mental health care system myself and having countless hours of unsuccessful therapy sessions. After many years of personal self-discovery and thousands of hours of professional training, I've been able to create an approach to psychotherapy that really works, and a life that I love and know I deserve. Choosing to do my own inner-work provides me with greater insight and makes me a therapist with integrity, one who is direct, results oriented, extremely resilient, and very compassionate."

"The decision to begin therapy is not simple and often comes at a particularly challenging time in your life. I know how difficult it can be to reach out during these times and my goal is to respond with curiosity, open-mindedness, and empathy. I believe that lasting change can come from exploring and ultimately freeing ourselves from the underlying causes of current symptoms. I want to work together with you to find ways to gain insight and relief. I work in an open and transparent manner, to help answer any questions or concerns you have along the way."

Successful therapy hinges on the quality of the relationship. Over my 25 year career of working with both individuals and couples, my approach has been to engage people on several levels: addressing the current situation, early life experiences, conscious and unconscious parts of the psyche, as well as the underlying dynamics that interfere with progress toward healing and wholeness.
