About me

My name is Dr. Bernard Scott, LICSW, PsyD and I have over 30 years of experience working in community mental health clinics in Boston, providing therapy to adolescents, adults, seniors, couples, and families. My clients face a variety of challenges including depression, anxiety, anger management, ADHD, domestic violence, gay/lesbian issues, grief/bereavement, obsessive compulsive disorders, personality disorders, phobias, PTSD, substance abuse, and psychotic/schizophrenic disorders. My appraoch to therapy involves partnering with each client and understanding their unique perspective. I then consider a variety of theoretical applications including interpersonal, cognitive/behavioral, solution focus, object relations, RET, brief/short term, and psychodynamic to best support the goals of each client. I firmly believe that mental health practitioners need to focus on supporting homeostasis within their client by using a wide variety of supplemental treatments. These may include referrals to acupuncture, message therapy, meditation, yoga, psychopharmacology, ect..

Speaking and learning about Dr.Scott is greatly a pleasure. He knows what he’s talking about and has the ability to explain in full detail of what he knows through all educational experiences of his profession . I’m great full to have him as a therapist to talk to as well as a great listener. Would highly recommend to family and friends. ☺️
