I really enjoy working with adolescents, college students and adults. I am specifically trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) but also have years of training in Strength Based Therapy, working with depressed and anxious individuals and individuals with a trauma history. I am also an adult adoptee and enjoy working with anyone involved in the adoption triad.

I have degrees in Psychology, Criminal Justice, and Social Work with many years of experience working in Family Court, Foster Care & Adoption , and Refugee Services.
Sometimes life can be challenging, to the point that you might feel overwhelmed with everything that is occurring and finding someone to talk to can be difficult at best. I use Integrative psychotherapy techniques in my work with adolescents, adults, & couples which allows me to consider the individual characteristics, preferences, needs, abilities, spiritual beliefs, & motivation level of each individual client and presenting concern. By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory & research I aim to be more flexible & inclusive, making therapy something to look forward to.

I have worked with families and children impacted by trauma including issues of foster care, adoption , parent/child attachment, child custody issues, parenting time, and mental health.
I believe that resilience is in all of us and healing is a path we can choose to walk at any time if we are willing to take the first step. Sometimes even helping professionals need their own helper, someone to listen to their experiences and walk alongside them as they process the challenges of helping. Focusing on secondary traumatic stress and occupational stress issues I believe my role as a therapist is to support clients as they navigate their healing process.

I believe therapy is a great way to help you turn the pain you feel today into the strength you feel tomorrow. My philosophy is simple “I help people become an expert on one subject, themselves”. We as human beings are very complex and often need help to navigate through stress, trauma, and life challenges. I was an at risk youth growing up and witnessed first hand how therapy can change the trajectory of one’s life. I am committed to working alongside my clients to help them find their inner healing and peace. I have worked with many different cultures, genders, and people from different backgrounds.

Is your child (3-10 years old) struggling with anxiety, depression, anger, focus, or grief? Has your child experienced developmental trauma? Does your child need support with gender/identity exploration? Children face emotional challenges in life, just like adults do, but many children struggle to express what they feel. As a parent you may feel like you have tried everything that you know to help your child but they continue to struggle. It is time to find a highly experienced professional to help you and your child overcome emotional and behavioral challenges and to connect and create meaningful shifts in your relationship.

Living a “life worth living” can seem like a path only others get to travel, while our journey feels unfair, exceedingly difficult, or at times impossible. At times we discover that our struggles are the result of the choices we made, or the choices others have made that affect us. At other times, we unknowingly hold onto faulty beliefs about ourselves or others, living as if they are true or accurate. To cope, we develop strategies to make the journey seem more doable. They can indeed be helpful and carry us toward our goals, or be the very obstacle that prevents us from achieving our potential.

We live in a stressful, sometimes chaotic world. My approach to therapy is to offer something that is often missing: a place to slow down and reflect, to have an open and honest conversation, to have your thoughts and emotions validated, and to put your life in a broader perspective. Therapy can transform your symptoms into a story that you can share with others, leading to a deeper sense of identity and belonging. Another aspect of my work is to offer clinical services, public speaking, and consultation on the impact of the overuse of digital technology on mental health. My website for these services is scotthbecker.com

I know that each individual is unique and will tailor my approach to meet the needs of my clients. My experiences include Home based, Outpatient and Community settings.

Life is full of many challenges and we all need a community of support to navigate it. I want to be part of that community for you. During the course of our strenuous daily lives, it's often difficult to find time to devote to invest in yourself. Worse, when new demands arrive unexpectedly, it can feel like that time is the easiest thing to sacrifice. When we work together, in a safe, open, strength-based environment, that investment will be our only focus, free from competition by any other demand. You will guide your experience from beginning to end.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
