I believe that the therapeutic experience should be safe, connected, warm, and creative. Whether I am working with couples, families, or individuals, I believe that growth and change occur when we are connected with our authentic selves. My goal is to support you in strengthening your relationship with yourself and with your loved ones. The past few years have been difficult for many of us. Therapy can help us to adjust to constant changes in our lives and ease the burden of isolation that many of us feel.

I work with my clients to address issues such as depression, anxiety, emotional intensity and regulation, trauma, grief, identity and relationship to create lasting change in their lives. I welcome clients who want to increase connected experience and emotional growth based on an authentic understanding of self, seeking a greater depth of awareness of the roots of emotional suffering so that new possibilities can arise. In my practice, I create a space that's compassionate and nonjudgmental, authentic and honest, working to move through pain and distress consciously- with awareness, intention/self-direction and creativity.

WAITLIST FOR NEW CLIENTS- Poet Anne Sexton wrote, "That the worst of anyone Can be, finally, An accident of hope." If you're here, you probably feel at your worst. Maybe a traumatic event has left you feeling broken and lost. Perhaps what you've been doing to cope just isn't working anymore, or is doing more harm than good. Whatever your reasons, I'm glad you're thinking about therapy. This process can be scary and takes hard work, and I welcome anyone courageous enough to seek out hope.

Sometimes things just aren’t working. Some feel emotional or have a hard time connecting with others. Some struggle to make things better but don’t always have an idea of how. These folks want to feel better and be better. They want their relationships to improve. They want to accomplish their life goals. They have the awareness that things are not working out the way they would like but are needing more insight, guidance or coaching to help things flow better. They are looking for somebody to help them to find a better way, to remove obstacles or heal from old emotional wounds. Also get “Living Your Best Self” guide on my website.

If curiosity about the stories we construct about our lives and authenticity interest you, we might be an exceptional fit for meaningful work. Whether the pain you’re feeling is tremendous sadness, the aftermath of traumatic experiences, anxiousness, difficulty in relationships, patterns of self-harm, or thoughts of suicide, psychotherapy can be a conduit for powerful healing and discovery. I work especially well with creative types and those interested in existential exploration.

As a generalist, Scott finds that he works from an integrative lens, naturally leaning towards a client-centered, strengths-based, and multicultural perspectives. Often, he likes to integrate aspects of Interpersonal Therapy, family systems, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral theories with the bio-psycho-social framework. With extensive college counseling center experience (18+ years), Scott enjoys working with this population and understands the difficulties that often emerge during this transitional process (identities, relationships, self-awareness, etc.). Scott believed no concern is too big or too small to seek support.

What type of Iowa City mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Iowa City?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
