I've helped parents to learn proven parenting techniques.
As we journey through life, we can experience challenges that stifle our personal growth or block our connection with others. Sometimes, we feel ill-equipped, disappointed, alone, hurt, or afraid. But there is hope-- hope for understanding, peace, empowerment, and joy. Whether you would like to broaden your understanding of your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, or deepen your connection with others, there is hope and there is help. Together we can enhance self-awareness and other-awareness. We can work to understand and strengthen your ability to manage your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We can develop healthy problem-solving and life skills.

In my play room, I implement Child Centered Play Therapy, Mindfulness, Attachment Focused activities, Parent Training, and when appropriate, a more directive approach.
Play is the place where children’s minds, hearts, and souls meet. Through Play Therapy, children are able to heal from distressing events such as, but not limited to, trauma, grief and loss, divorce, depression, adoption, foster care and attachment issues; and to improve in myriad areas such as impulse control, emotional regulation, ADHD, OCD, and ODD. As your child’s therapist, my goal is to enable children to heal, so that they are empowered to “rise and shine” to their highest potential.

Hope filled counseling to help relieve issues and improve your day. Many people have very fast paced lives and feel overwhelmed while others have low energy and feel stuck.

I focus on building a supportive relationship with the client to increase the effectiveness of counseling. From a previous client "Scott has been wonderful to work with. He is encouraging and his support helped me rediscover purpose in my life."

I love partnering with parents to not only help their child overcome, but also to help strengthen the parent-child relationship.
The relationship you and your child has with their counselor is the true measure of how helpful the counseling experience will be. I value developing a warm, positive, supportive and empathic environment for your family to overcome any challenge that you are facing. In our experience together, you will find healing and growth, and recognize your own strengths, and how they help you and your child work toward building a more positive and rewarding future. Both in your individual lives, and collectively within the family.
