About me

Thank you so much for giving me your consideration when it comes to your mental health. I know it can be a lot to think about trusting someone with all of the thoughts and feelings! Let me take a minute to introduce myself.
My name is Scotty, and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Arkansas. I've been doing this for 15 years and have experience with adults and children, individuals, couples, and families. I also have experience with adults and children with special needs. I take a cognitive-behavioral and person-centered approach, and can implement a faith-based perspective as well, if that's what you're looking for.
My primary focus throughout the therapy process is person-to-person connection. If we don't have that, we won't make progress, and progress is why we're here!
I look forward to meeting you. Talk to you soon.

Scotty is understanding and listens well without judgement. He offers a different perspective and encourages me to discuss what I’m ready to deal with.

Excellent all the way around. He provided me the tools I need to fix my problem. I believe I need to do this on my own, and thanks to his guidance I believe I can.
