About me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Missouri providing counseling regarding emotional, relational, career, and spiritual concerns. While my passion is marriage counseling, I have worked well with individual adults, teens, children, and families. It has been my privilege to work with a variety of ages regarding marriage/family/parenting concerns, peer pressure, anger management, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, social awkwardness, bullying, self-esteem, depression, motivation, grief, moral character, life calling, and career exploration. I work from a Family Systems Theory perspective that integrates well with various modalities. I have been trained in play therapy and Cognitive/Behavioral techniques that are highly effective with children. It is my goal to have a positive impact on others by challenging them to reach for their highest potential in life.

She’s very insightful and she really listens to my concerns and provides positive feedback. She’s very uplifting and I enjoy our weekly conversations and reporting back to her. She ends her sessions with prayer and it makes me feel so much lighter and I always leave my sessions with a big smile on my face!

Dorie is amazing!

This woman is amazing. Words can't describe! She is a true woman of God, and I am so glad God brought her to me! She is so nice and genuine. She has a lot of experience in so many areas and she truly cares. I am so excited to see where God takes my therapy with her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone, even people who aren't Christians. She is an amazing therapist. I always look forward to our sessions. Thank you, Dorie!!

Dorie has been very helpful in assisting me with identifying points of stress in my life which cause anxiety and guilt. While also providing useful tools to help recognize and alleviate those stressors. She is professional and kind. Highly recommend Dorie to anyone looking for a family therapist.

Dorie is the BEST! She is a wonderful Woman of God! I absolutely love that she asks if you would like for her to pray at the end of the session!
I've messed up and sent her a text to tell her about it. She's very understanding, but firm. You do not have to worry about her scolding you, but she will give you her best opinion and best advice!
I could go on and on about all of the things I love and appreciate about Dorie, but I'll stop there

Dorie has been extremely helpful. Though I feel like we've only just started, the new perspectives that she has provided have been grounding and reassuring, and her advice has been beneficial and supportive. I would not hesitate to recommend therapy in general, and Dorie in particular, to anyone struggling with a dead-end in their inner life.

I am a healthcare professional and new mom that has been in therapy with Dorie for 3 months! I had a recently devastating trauma and loss in our family and Dorie has helped me feel so equipped to grow, accept, and thrive during this time. She is a Christian woman who is so wise and candid and has experience raising children of her own. She is sensitive, approachable, has a great sense of humor, and is overall such a kind human being. She prays with me at the end of each session and has made me a believer and advocate of therapy and counseling! At first I was hesitant to try therapy, but I've found that it is such a great outlet for me to receive sound advice, process through my work/parenting/family situations and I leave sessions feeling calm and rejuvenated! I'm so glad I found Dorie as my therapist :)! Give her a try, you won't be disappointed! - Amanda

A Woman of Great Knowledge
-Gave me a whole new perspective on family, dating, my past, and myself. Her knowledge and skills are like a mountainful of gemstones: precious and abundant. You will emerge from your sessions with armfuls of treasure every time

Warmth and Principle
-One of the warmest people I've ever met. The fire of Biblical principles burn bright and true in her heart, and flows in tender affection in every word she speaks. She makes you feel safe and cared for while inspiring you to be the best version of yourself you can be.


Above and Beyond
-She always has a relevant answer for any question I have during our sessions. She is equally brilliant through the messaging feature. I can message her in between sessions and be assured that she'll respond with consistent sincerity and depth.

Love Doris❤️
Super friendly and gives great tips

Written on Aug 31, 2022 after therapy with Dorie for 2 months on issues concerning family conflicts

Dorie has been extremely helpful. She has a strong understanding of family dynamic, which is an important topic for me and central to the concerns that had me look into betterhelp. She's a great listener, very positive, but willing to go deep, challenge my thinking, or chime in with pragmatic advice when needed. It's also worth noting that this is my first time working with a therapist and Dorie has made the process very approachable. I highly recommend working with her.

I highly recommend her to anyone who is experiencing anxiety and worry over certain situations or experiences. I’m so glad I had the chance to work with her in my therapy journey.

It's been a wonderful experience. There has been no judgement and Mrs. Scofield has been helping me with my ptsd. I have a lot of hope for the reason that so far it has been a very positive experience. No demands just help, thank you!!!

When I felt so alone and misunderstood that I felt like a nothing- Dorie gave me friendship and moral emotional support where there was none to be found anywhere. The ability to text really makes the difference bc bad feelings can flood you at any moment. Truly better help, better than any I've had. And over tried them all.
