My Approach to Helping

Scott has his master's degree in Contemplative Psychotherapy from Naropa University. Throughout the last 20 years he has been on a personal journey of self-discovery and transformation deeply rooted in the practices of mindfulness, meditation and unconditional presence. This journey has inspired him to become a compassionate therapist, sharing his perspective, insights, and skills with clients. Scott has experience working with drug addiction, depression, social anxiety, borderline personality disorder, attachment trauma, complex trauma, mood dysregulation, emotional avoidance, relationship issues, spiritual emergence, and embodiment. His theoretical approach is an intuitive combination of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, attachment theory, modern psychoanalysis, traumatic re-experiencing, interpersonal reconstructive therapy, and contemplative psychotherapy. More specifically, when we can clearly, fully and compassionately see a maladaptive pattern of behavior, the behavior spontaneously ceases. To do this Scott helps you explore and experience these difficult patterns from four distinct perspectives; current verbal story, hidden emotions, ongoing bodily experience, and formative childhood memories. Once the maladaptive patterns are fully seen without self-aggression; wisdom, joy, and vitality naturally express in place of the pattern. Within the therapeutic relationship, Scott is very flexible to meet your goals and motivations.

More Info About My Practice

In the beginning of the therapeutic relationship we focus on practical issues that are holding the client back in their daily life. Often mindfulness and emotion regulation skills are taught to help the client have an increased sense of control and confidence in their life. As the client's ability to regulate painful emotions and lovingly embrace them builds, often the sessions will focus on more deep-rooted issues. Now these unresolved conflicts can be fully experienced, expressed and accepted, through the clients increased emotion regulation skills, self-awareness and self-love, within the supportive therapeutic relationship.
