Cheryl Scott

(M.S., LMHC)

About Me

My name is Cheryl Scott, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Florida with 25 years of experience providing counseling and psychotherapy.

My counseling approach is genuine and team orientated. I offer carefully constructed treatment plans for individuals that are ready to work to make life changes and enter into long term therapy.

If you are ready to make your life change, I am here to help you. I use a broad variety of treatment techniques including, but not limited to: Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Narrative Therapy, Rational-Emotive Therapy, and Talk Therapy. I treat a variety of conditions, from anxiety and depression to life change issues and relationship problems.

The team approach to therapy means you will be an active participant in your therapy. I will be teaching you new skills and you will be practicing these skills in a variety of ways. I will be giving you thought provoking material to read and questions to answer. It is through this process you will discover your deeper self and find courage and new ways to cope. I use a holistic approach to treatment including a mind, body, spirit perspective. I am a Christian, and I am available for Christian counseling input if desired.

You can work with me in a variety of ways. You can meet with me for a live video, phone or chat treatment planning session on Tuesday or Thursday, and in live phone or chat treatment planning sessions on Fridays. If you have need to tell me something that does not fit into this schedule, you can always leave me a audio or video message. Between treatment planning sessions, the messaging portion of the Better Help app will be very useful for you. Messages are asynchronous with response times generally 24 hours on weekdays and 48 on weekends.

If you are serious about a life change and ready to work with me let me know and we will begin the match process.

My best,
Cheryl Scott, MS LMHC
