I also have trainings in Attachment Based Family Therapy (ABFT), ABFT specific LGBTQ + Adolescents, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Multidimensional Family therapy.
I believe people are more than their diagnosis. Yes, a diagnosis is a tool but it is not the big picture. I come from a place of curiosity and wonder, wanting to know my clients on a deeper level so that I can help them navigate this world. For example, PTSD is a big diagnosis that is thrown around; yet, it doesn't paint the full picture. It doesn't reflect someone's experiences, triggers, how this is impacting their relationships, family history, the strengths they possess etc. Adolescents are my passion however, I also enjoy and work closely with families and adults.

Diane Mitchell-Scott
Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC
Verified
I specialize in adults with developmental disabilities including Asperger Syndrome, same-sex couples and transgender individuals.
Change is possible and hope always exists. I create a therapeutic environment of acceptance with no judgement so that change and growth can occur. Do you feel like you want an area of your life to be different? Or that something is wrong but you just can't pinpoint the source of the problem - or how to fix it? Taking that first step toward counseling is challenging but the benefits will include increased self-esteem, better relationships, a clearer understanding of self, increased productivity and a greater ability to deal with stress. What is the point of waiting when you can start feeling better today!

While I work with a range of presenting concerns, some areas of particular interest/experience include depression, anxiety, grief, stress and anger management, challenging life transitions, identity issues (including LGBTQ + concerns), and the impact of past or recent trauma.
Seeking help isn't easy, and it takes a certain amount of courage. Just like being human. One of the things I've learned in 20+ years as a practicing psychologist is that we all have reserves of courage within us-even when we're feeling our worst. Having a compassionate and accepting person to talk to can help us find that courage and acceptance within ourselves. If you've been feeling overwhelmed, upset, or confused, or just think you might benefit from touching base with someone supportive and understanding, I would be happy to meet with you.

Every individual has experienced internal conflict regarding their mental health. Some of those we navigate just fine on our own and that is awesome! Other times we need some guidance, new ideas on how to effectively communicate, affirmations that we "do hard things", or to have our views on a situation challenged so we can come back with greater understanding and additional empathy.

Hi. Thank you for taking a look at my counseling profile. I love counseling and have been practicing for 30 years. One of the things I've noticed new clients are concerned about is being able to express themselves without being judged, as well as if the experience will be awkward. In all my years of practicing, I've heard almost everything imaginable and judgment is not a part of how I work. Everything in my office is 100% confidential and safe. I know how to ask the right question and keep the conversation flowing.

The decision to seek therapy involves more than a willingness to grow - It also requires the ability to develop a healthy therapeutic relationship built on trust, empathy, and unconditional acceptance. Creating a healthy and supportive relationship allows the client to discover more about themselves and creates an environment for change.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. The foundation of my approach to counseling, is that clients have to put in the work when they make the decision to come to therapy; this is how clients will be the most successful in their journey. Therapy can be messy, and the most impactful thing I can do for my clients is hold space, bring things into awareness that they might be missing, and find different, more effective ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving.

I have a passion for helping, and strongly feel that building a connection - a supportive, therapeutic relationship - is critical and essential for counseling to be most effective. You will find in me a genuine person, and genuinely caring. I want to help you either overcome and conquer your struggle, or find a way to make life worth living - learning, practicing, and using "tools" that can elevate you to truly living from merely surviving. I've helped hundreds of people to find joy and new purpose, and I want to help you, too.

Can life just stop being a shit show? You work your butt off for a job that you constantly feel the "Sunday Scaries" over, you come home to a sink full of dishes and somehow twice as much laundry than what you saw the basket this morning, your mom made yet another comment about the way you choose to parent your kids, and you can’t even remember the last time you had a real, guilt-free night out. It's all starting to close in on you and you wish you could just run. It would be so easy to just run, wouldn't it?
