Hi, thanks for taking some time to get to know me. I am Dr. Scott Butler. I am licensed in Louisiana as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from LSU and a Master’s and Ph.D. in mental health counseling from the University of New Orleans. I've been offering counseling for over 15 years. I have been married for 27 years and have three daughters who are all studying in high school, college or law school.
I have worked in many different mental health settings including hospitals, crisis intervention hotlines, non-profit organizations, as a preferred provider for local and state agencies and over 20 years in adoption and foster care work. I have been deemed an expert witness in criminal and civil cases and have authored one novel, king cake baby.
I use a cognitive-behavioral theoretical approach to counseling which is a goal-oriented treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Life can be difficult, right? Sometimes, despite our best intentions, we simply need someone to help guide us to a better place. I am a trained listener. I take in the information you provide and turn it back to you in a step by step approach to help you move beyond what brought you to me. Beginning this process with the right counselor helps you get better, faster.
I hope to be that counselor.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues

I also have experience in Addictions, Family conflicts, Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties

Dr. Butler is an exceptional therapist. He embodies experience, genuineness in his compassion, and an innate ability to understand the different challenges I face. Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Butler, not only to offer counseling with anxiety or relationships, but all facets of challenges you may face.
I have experienced a few counselors but it didn’t work well for me. However, Dr. Butler is the one who could solve my issue. He gave me clear direction, what are my problems, what should I do ... if I were to come back for counseling, I will request for him again.
Dr. Butler has helped me break through what I am going through. I have had a tough time with my work/balance, as well as, issues with anxiety. He has been a tremendous help to my mental health.
Very helpful and straightforward. Tells me exactly how it is.
Dr. Butler has a very logical, but sympathetic approach to counseling. He really listens to what you're saying and attempts to get to the source of your problems as efficiently as he can. Even after just a few sessions, I'm already feeling way better emotionally and mentally.
Dr. Butler is very experienced and professional counselor. He has been able to help me very quickly.
Dr. Butler has so far demonstrated empathy, attentiveness, and strong communication skills with me. I think he may be one of the best counselors for people dealing with anxiety, depression, and/or self image issues.
Dr. Butler is always quick to respond when I need him. He is good about checking in if he hasn’t heard from me in a few days. He’s thorough with our conversations and is very good at what he does. I definitely recommend him.
Dr. Butler is patient, knowledgeable and compassionate. I really feel like he is on my team and supporting me to make positive changes in my life in the most non-judgmental way possible.
