Scott is incredible. A very kind, sweet, empathetic, and VERY wise soul. Scott took me from a very dark place, and filled my world with bright light (pretty quickly I might add!). I would highly recommend Scott.

Scott has been helping me weather some rough seas related to my father's ill-health and death. He is kind and perceptive and his gentle insistence on self-care has helped me a lot. I can't recommend him enough.
