Scott brings a non-threatening approach to the clinical context, placing a high value on the importance of establishing rapport and safety for those he serves. He is a believer in the collaborative approach to healing, empowering clients to play an active role in their movement towards health.

For those clients involved in other beneficial services (i.e. support groups, other therapeutic modalities, psychiatric or other medical care), Scott is a firm believer in the coordination of care and promoting consistent communication amongst service providers. He also has an extensive knowledge base of adjunct and specialty services in the Lake County area, and can provide the necessary linkage to such service when it is deemed necessary. Scott typically serves clients ages 12 and older and is willing to make exceptions on a case by case basis. Communication and the ability to present as forthright and genuine are among the many clinical skills Scott possesses in developing engagement with those he serves while creating an environment for change and healing.
