In addition, he is trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a body-oriented talk therapy, which uses mindfulness, body awareness, and movement to facilitate healing and transformation from trauma and developmental wounds. Scott is multicultural and LGBTQ affirming. He and his partner have been married for 16 years and have 3 girls they are trying their best to raise.  Scott leads two ongoing therapy groups: 

  • Sexual trauma therapy group.  This group if for women on their journey of healing and transformation from the effects of sexual trauma.  This group offers safe space for women to reclaim their lives and overcome the harm caused by sexual assault, childhood/adolescent sexual abuse, acquaintance/date rape, drug-facilitated sexual assault, incest, sexual exploitation, prostitution, partner sexual assault, and many other situations.  This group is intentionally welcoming to new members and is for all women who self-identify as women, femme, cisgender, trans*, gender queer, non binary, gender non-conforming, & others.  We use a circle process and meet every other Tuesday from 5:15pm-7:15pm.

  • Compulsive sexual behavior therapy group.  This group is for people who are struggling to control their sexual behavior.  Enjoyable sexual behaviors can start to become compulsive, uncontrollable, and incongruent with people‚Äôs values; often leading to risky sexual behavior and relationship problems.  This therapy group meets every Thursday night from 5:00pm-7:15pm.
