Thanks for taking peek at my bio! My approach is wholistic--meaning I draw upon a variety of clinical theories. My first task to to provide deep listening in an effort to understand. I try and look at the whole picture and how the pieces all fit together for you and your context. I am direct, candid, and solution focused with kindness, curiosity and gratitude as my foundation.
A little about me: I have three advanced degrees in divinity, social work and media studies and I have worked in a wide variety of settings across 13 states. I also have five grown daughters. Wanderlust is in my blood--I have been fortunate to have travelled to over 48 countries, and always hoping there is more on the horizon. Additionally, I am a certified Laughing Yoga instructor--Ho, Ho, Ho, Ha, Ha. Innovation and creativity are in my wheelhouse. All these diverse experiences and education inform all that I do and who I am.
I would love to learn about you and talk about your journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Scott Lovaas. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Dr. Lovaas has helped me through major life transitions this year from a career change to a new marriage and family adjustments. He's empowered me in ways that have transformed my life to focus on the important things--relationships and family and enjoying all life has to offer. He is a wonderful therapist and model of how to live life to the fullest. I am so grateful to have had his support and guidance.
Outstanding, helpful, and professional.
Scott is awesome. He's down to earth, easy to talk with, but perceptive enough to help you figure out what's going on. He also does a phenomenal job of giving you small incremental and practical steps to take to make progress.
Scott is an understanding, kind, sympathetic, wise and helpful therapist who is helping me in a myriad of ways. He goes above and beyond the call by emailing me to ask about how I am or how things are going. I enthusiastically recommend him to anyone looking for help.
He’s the man
Dr. Lovaas is amazing. Very thoughtful, direct and helpful in my healing process.
Dr. Lovaas is completely relatable and takes the time to understand any and all possible issues associated for a full picture of the issue to better help. I wish I had found him much sooner in my therapy journey!
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Lovaas! Scott has made a very strong impact on my life, supporting and teaching me through a hard time with health, past relationship trauma, and family issues. This is my first time going to therapy, and I've felt comfortable and understood. Scott actually cares. He's funny, empathetic, and he goes above and beyond for his clients.
Thank you Dr. Lovaas.
Excellent in every way including listening and offering solutions.
Dr. Scott Lovaas was exactly the type of person I needed to talk to. He was able to both productively challenge me on my views and help me get my life back in order.
Dr. Lovaas (M.Div, LCSW, PhD). is smart and articulate. He asks good questions and has projected me forward.
Scott really listens and immediately calls me out on my bull***t which is exactly what I need 10/10
Dr. Lovaas is helping my wife and I rebuild our marriage from the ground up. We've had many sessions together at this point and can highly recommend his care and support if you are struggling to do things on your own. We've also had one-on-one counseling and it has helped us both.
Dr. Lovaas is compassionate and understanding. He's straight forward and open minded.
I really feel like Dr. Lovaas cares and he’s concerned about my well being.
Dr. Scott has been very understanding the past few weeks with me and my anxiety issues. Hes helped me so much and has really helped throughout our sessions. I look forward to talking to him every week
