About Me

Hello and welcome to Discovering Hope Counseling Services. My name is Shalonda Scott and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My ideal client is anyone that needs my services the most. I'm a big advocate for therapy and my goal is to make it accessible to as many as possible. I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to have a safe place and a listening ear. I received my bachelor's in social work from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2014 and my master's in mental health from The University of Texas at Arlington in 2015. Since deciding to go into private practice I have been focusing on life changes, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, stress management etc. I use various therapeutic modalities, tailored specifically to the client's needs. I work from a strengths-based approach which identifies any constraints that might be holding back an individual’s growth.

Written by P.E. on Aug 04, 2022 after therapy with Shalonda for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Shalonda is patient, practical and compassionate with a lot of wisdom to guide. She provided me with homework, to expand my horizons, get out of my comfort zone, and use good resources and practices for mindfulness, practical solutions to aptly resolvable problems and perspective for discernment on how to keep healthy emotional boundaries in toxic relationships. She encouraged self love and self esteem boosting ideas and plans that worked. I highly recommend anyone who needs help to seek counsel with Shalonda.

Having therapy with Shalonda has truly made my quality of life all the more better. She listens to me, offers thoughtful insight, and helps me plan ahead and sets goals. I have noticed reduced anxiety levels since working with her and using the strategies we talk about during our sessions. She is wonderful!

Shalonda always responds in a timely manner. She communicates every time, even when she is going to be a few minutes late. Also, she provides diverse insight whenever it comes to having a life issue. So far she’s great!

Eventhough I have worked with Shalonda for a short time, I have felt very comfortable and safe speaking with her. Her advice has helped me a lot so far and look forward to continuing working with her

Work with me!
