Dr. Scott’s experience in higher Ed is such an asset to my therapeutic experience. It’s truly a different world and to have a therapist that really understands the ins and outs of this world makes it easier to focus on the issues at hand rather than explaining the norms of academia. I’m grateful for Dr. Scott’s kind and compassionate care.

Dr Scott, upon our initial encounter, I was pleased with her professionalism and attentiveness to just listen to, sometimes, ranting, but listen to my heart cries. There was a humbling about her presence and commitment to her patients to just be present.
I appreciated that. Knowing someone was actually, hearing you and not just blowing you off to get to the next patient or to discontinue the conversation altogether.

Thank you.
