About me

I am a licensed mental health professional in Florida, with 20+ years of experience. My approach to therapy focuses on a positive and empowering approach, encompassing a range of techniques from different theories. I will assist you in focusing on your strengths and how you can increase your own resilience and adaptability to help you through difficult times versus focusing trying to change things beyond your control. I believe that mental health is a lifestyle, just as we need to maintain our physical health, mental health requires work and attention too. Mental health is not a 2-sided concept--it is not that you are or you are not mentally healthy, think of it as more of a continuum or spectrum with optimal functioning on end and least optimal functioning on the other end. Where is your health on the spectrum and how can we help you move more into the optimal direction?
There are no quick fixes or magic cures for all that troubles you, but with some lifestyle adjustments you can improve your overall well-being. I would like to help you examine your life and create lifestyle improvements that are unique to your needs and abilities.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Dana Scoville. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Dr. Dana has been and continues to be a great support while I work through things, big and small. She shares her knowledge when appropriate, gives helpful advice without ever pushing for something as the "right" solution, and helps me above all, see things in perspective. For me she has made my path into therapy an easy one, as I feel connected and safe which in turn makes me feel comfortable sharing things I may not have with other therapists. I would highly recommend Dr. Dana.

I started counseling 4 months ago and I am amazed at how much it has helped me. When I started I was a wreck emotionally, a lot of situations had hurt me, I used to constantly overthink, judge myself harshly, worry. I was at a hopeless place and would spend a lot of time hurting. Dr Dana is amazing at her job- she has helped me considerably to manage my thoughts and feelings, relax my mind and not carry everything on myself. She helped me see the roots of my problems, and helped me see my worth as oppose to concentrating on other people’s toxic behavior towards me.

I have been speaking to Dr. Scoville for a few months now and I have gotten so much benefit out of it so far. Not only is she a great listener but she also gives me really valuable advice and useful strategies to try out to help me deal with my anxiety. I feel really comfortable talking to her and my sessions with Dr. Scoville have helped me to process my thoughts and understand myself better. She also remembers the little details about me which makes me feel even more that she really does listen and also makes me feel more connected to my counselor.
