Scott is interested in working a broad range of concerns including depression and anxiety, identity and self-esteem issues, emotional expression (EQ), relationship , marriage/family concerns, men's issues, sexual trauma, sexual addiction, academic skills, and career concerns.
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.

" There are many losses in addition to death that are blows to our sense of identity: relationship , job, status and role losses.
My ideal client is commited to personal growth. I believe we are all fragile creatures, yet capable of resilience. We experience painful thought/feeling states and then we weave stories to explain them. Narrative Therapy has been a natural fit for me: the client defines the goals, we examine the details of self-limiting stories, including family and cultural "scripts." We work to co-create stories about identity that have more space for possibilities and emotional resilience.

I see couples, individuals, & families for: dating/ relationship issues , anxiety, couples counseling (infidelity, alcohol misuse, how social media affects connection, & pre-marital), college/graduate student stress, divorce, blended families, co-dependency, grief & loss, harsh self-narratives, & concerns with spirituality, indecision, and uncertainty.
My accepting approach is secured in the notion that we all deserve to be welcomed just as we are, including the problems and struggles we bear. Even if our problems have no straightforward answers, we can learn to live with and through them when we are better connected to ourselves and others. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I aspire to enable this connection. My training is rooted in Systems Theory, which views individuals, couples, and families through their relationship network. I take care to recognize how family of origin, cultural, and contextual factors inform our habits, perceptions, and sense of well-being.

My experience includes working with couples, families with children, teens, individuals experiencing anxiety, relationship issues and various life transition phases.
Now Accepting new clients! It is my passion to witness the growth of others towards a self-defined meaningful life. The world can feel chaotic; through life transitions, traumatic experiences, and relationship issues we can begin to feel disconnected and overwhelmed. Asking for help often feels uncomfortable and vulnerable. I believe this is a sign of strength, and I feel grateful that you are here considering my services as a means to heal. I strive to use my skills to empower individuals, couples, and families to share their truth, and facilitate growth. I fully accept who you are just as you are each time you walk in the door.

Although the comfort and joy of being in relationship is our birthright, for many of us, the path to deeper connections requires an inward journey.
As a mother, grandmother, teacher and former family and divorce mediator, I am sensitive to finding the right words to soothe, comfort and connect with others so that each person feels heard, understood and valued. In therapy I will help you recognize, accept, investigate and nurture your feelings. From this connected place your interactions with others will reflect your heart instead of your threatened brain. My approach is based on the science of neurobiology, the wisdom of Buddhist philosophy, a dose of humor, and the warmth we generate together.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for an Iowa City relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Iowa City.
