A map can be a helpful reference to inform our personal journeys, and when predicaments and problems overshadow current experience, the respectful and collaborative effort of therapy can illuminate an awareness of finding our way toward a valued experience. I was raised in the Los Angeles, California area, and have spent important years around the globe in military and government civilian leadership roles. I am sensitive to how trauma experiences and cultural, societal and family messages can inform and influence our sense of personal wellbeing, self-concept and self-worth.
I have training in EMDR, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Internal Family systems to assist with individual trauma processing, and client struggles with depression, anxiety, and PTSD. I also specialize in couples and family work from an attachment perspective and have received training in Relational Life Therapy; and have experience working with trauma survivors of domestic violence while at TESSA of Colorado Springs, and can assist those that are struggling with betrayal trauma or just trying to move positively forward from manipulative and abusive experience.
Why work with Scott?
I can assist with respectfully meeting an individual, couple or family clients exactly where they are, and opening a safe and non-judgmental space to assist in processing trauma experiences, assist in restoring personal balance in present experience, and strengthen meaningful relational connections.
