I am a LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counselor) currently licensed in Florida. I have 3 years experience in this capacity, as well as 24 years as a para-professional providing crisis response services (CISM, Peer Support) to First Responders (I am a retired Law Enforcement Officer with 28 years of experience). In addition to my first responder work, I have also had the pleasure of providing counseling services to many of the same people that I had arrested. I mention this because it is not where you've been or where you're at, but where you want to be. I value the person.
I have worked with clients over trauma issues, anxiety, depression, coping, existential/quality of life concerns, etc. I take an integrative approach to counseling, adjusting to best serve the client's needs. I am direct and factual in my approach with clients, as I don't believe in ambiguity or leaving someone guessing. That being said, effective counseling also requires warmth, caring and support. I find that a sprinkling of appropriate humor helps to facilitate the process, but most of all, sincerity is the key to a successful collaborative experience.
I bring a lot of life experience to counseling, especially trauma/crisis issues for First Responders. I do not just talk the talk, I have walked the walk.

Scott gives solid help even from the very first session! His help was very actionable and effective. I was able to make tremendous progress and process grief and find forgiveness and healing. He provided a safe environment where I felt empowered to learn and grow and develop a positive mindset. He really cares about his clients and their well being.
Scott is very respectful and friendly. He is also a great listener. He made my experience going through therapy an excellent one. Thank you.
Scott listens to you in depth and offers logical and invaluable feedback concerning your situation. He has a strong, genuine and empathetic, understanding personality with life experience that lends to dealing with a variety of problems we can all face. He goes above and beyond to help and cares so much to actually reach out just to see how you are doing. I highly recommend Scott if you are in a difficult spot and need guidance to a better place.
It is great to have an ally
Scott has been an incredible facilitator to getting me to acceptance of my past and establishing a good path forward for my future.

Scott has been a real help. I've been thrusted into a rough time and he's helped me get my head around things. Quick to get back to me outside of sessions and easy to talk to over messages and video!
A man with a lot of experience in relationships, a great listener, and thoughtful with his responses to your questions.
Scott has literally saved my life with the way he helps me navigate thru my issues and give me a different outlook on life. He’s the best !
When I was first matched with Scott, I wasn’t so sure it would work and did consider rematching. I’m so glad I didn’t. He listens extremely well and has great advice to ease my mind and make me think. He is a true professional and I look forward to our weekly talks. Couldn’t recommend him enough.
Scott listens well and provides some great tools to take away and easily apply in my life. Only two sessions in but it has definitely been useful.
Scott is a great counselor. You can tell he is solid in his style. He's got experience and expertise. I'm grateful for all of the ways he helps me.

Mr. Wetherhold is AMAZING! I couldn’t be more grateful for his genuine interest in my overall well being and personal growth. He provides the perfect balance of clinical and spiritual counseling and will suggest “tools” to help you continue your journey outside of the session.
