Dr. Scott is incredible. She listens to my concerns and has a beautiful way of offering a new perspective that helps me to better understand myself and ways to take care of my mental health. I always feel better after talking with her and would recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Scott was a great help to me when I was at one of my lowest points. She had kind and thoughtful responses to my issues and concerns. She not only listened to my problems but helped me to revise my thinking. She gave me tools so that I can improve myself. I now have better confidence and self awareness. She was quick to respond whenever I messaged her and was always on time for our chat appointments. I would definitely recommend her to anyone I know.
