"I'm convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they're stones that don't matter. As long as you're breathing, it's never too late to do some good."- Maya Angelou
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with over a decade of experience working in the mental health field. Clients that I have worked with present with a range of concerns including difficulty adjusting to life changes, substance abuse, career challenges, difficulty managing mood, anxiousness, anger management, relationship concerns, grief/loss, and history of trauma. My clients work with me to explore their concerns and to utilize therapeutic support toward making positive life changes, one step at a time.
My counseling style is warm, direct, interactive and encouraging. Therapy is a small (but powerful) slice of a person's life, so the time is valuable and should always be productive as you work toward your identified goals. I believe that everyone can benefit from a healthy therapeutic relationship, where they are treated with respect, sensitivity and compassion, while also being challenged to push their personal barriers to change. My approach is client-centered and treatment planning will be tailored to your specific needs and adjusted as needed.
I am ready to go with you on this journey to live a more fulfilling life, where your happiness and peace is at the core and your steps toward positive changes are deliberate and thoughtful. When you are ready to take that first step toward support, I am here to work with you and empower you. Let's do this work together!

I very much enjoy working with Leticeia Scott. She makes me see things in a new light and gently holds me accountable. She is always timely and very responsive.

Leticeia is kind and respectful. She always listens first then gives relevant, pertinent advice that truly gets to the heart of the matter. She remembers details from previous sessions and is able to quickly recognize patterns, all of which made me feel that she really wanted to help me grow and learn. I would strongly recommend her to anyone.

Leticeia has been incredibly perceptive, encouraging and insightful throughout this process. She has helped me discover so much about myself and the healing and growth I've experienced while working with her has been the most valuable time of my life. She made me feel so comfortable and after talking with her and doing EMDR sessions I am 10x happier, healthier and lighter. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

I have always thought therapy is not for me and that no one can help, for most of my life... but I am so grateful I found such a great person as Leticeia who's helped me figure out how to appreciate my hardships and move on from, what seems now, like a lifetime of depression. I feel like I now have the right weapons to fight it and I am more myself then I've ever been. So, thank you!! :)
