About Dr. Scott

I know what it is to feel hopelessly stuck and worthless to the world in general. I also know what it is to live without those feelings. I’ve taken myself from the extreme edge of disability and dysfunction to living a life I could never have imagined. I barely graduated high school, flunked out of college freshman year, didn’t know how to have healthy relationships, and didn’t even try to take care of myself. I’ve struggled with addiction, worthlessness, self-hatred, lack of direction, fear of the outside world, unhealthy obsessions, dangerous relationships, and some other things I’d rather not mention on a public website.

My life has changed so dramatically it hardly seems real. I have a wife and two children and we all get along most of the time. I own three profitable businesses and enjoy running all of them. I’m in the best shape of my life, physically and mentally, at age 40. I’ve come a long, long way from the days when I believed the only place for me in this world was a cabin in the woods, alone with my mind.

I’ve used some unusual and, to my knowledge, unique techniques to get from where I was to where I am. Many of the biggest turning points in my life came from ideas I never learned in my graduate studies or clinical internships. They fall outside the boundaries of empirically supported treatments, and as much as I love being a therapist, I know that therapy alone isn’t the right fit for everyone. I’d love to share some of my techniques with you if you’re looking to achieve results similar to mine. I try to make them available for free through my various social media platforms, but I know sometimes we need more than a pre-recorded message. There’s no real substitute for a real-time, individualized conversation with someone who gets it and knows how to help.

Please note that my methods are intense. Big change requires big change. If you’re looking for someone to tell you that you’re fine just the way you are and you don’t need to do anything differently, I am not your guy. If you’re hoping to really turn your life around and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to get there, I think we would work well together and I hope you’ll consider giving me a try!
