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.

CURRENTLY NO OPENINGS. People generally seek therapy because they want some aspect of their life to be different and change can be hard! I love working with people courageous enough to face whatever it is that's in need of changing. Stress and anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, new adjustments or life-transitions, self-identity and personal development, family of origin issues, recovering from trauma, grief or personal losses are just some of the presenting concerns I typically work with in individual counseling. My multidisciplinary background provides me with different lenses and methods to approach each client's concerns.

It can be very challenging and difficult to talk to someone about your mental health. Reaching out to a therapist is a brave first step towards healing. I aim to provide a warm, safe, and non-judgmental environment where I assist my client in constructing a treatment plan that works best for their current needs and lifestyle. In session, I utilize a combination of Person-Centered, Narrative, Cognitive-behavioral, and Solution Focused approaches to meet my client’s individualistic or holistic needs. I also specialize in the technique of brain-spotting and am currently working to earn certification.

Not currently accepting new clients at this time. Working in a variety of social work and mental health settings over the past 15 years, has taught me to implement a straightforward, nonjudgmental, compassionate, and empathetic approach, when working with people. As an interactive therapist, I offer a safe and supportive environment, where I encourage people to utilize their voice, not only to build on their own strengths and resiliency, but to collaborate together to address their needs and goals during this process.

As much as it can be amazing and beautiful, life can also be frustrating, stressful, lonely, overwhelming, and hard to navigate. You want it to be easier. You want to not feel so stuck, worried, sad, alone, confused, lost. You want things to be better. You want to feel better. You want meaning and connection. You're tired of being afraid. You want to live the life you see for yourself, but can't seem to reach. Maybe it's hard for you to get out there, connect, and be part of things. Maybe you feel invisible.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
