Carolyn Scott, ACMHC
In working with clients I blend compassion and creativity with proven techniques to help foster growth, healing, and change. My goal is to help clients make sense of life experiences in a secure, comfortable, safe environment, to find empowerment, and to learn skills to create a life they believe is worth living. I'm an associate clinical mental health counselor with over a decade of experience working with diverse populations including children in leprosy colonies, youth in residential treatment, adults on probation and parole, survivors of trauma, families, and individuals struggling with various issues. I'm trained in cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), radically open dialectical behavior therapy (RODBT), sand tray therapy, exposure response prevention (ERP), emotional release processing (a type of therapy that uses guided imagery and regression to help individuals process emotion about past experiences), and Promethean Spark life coaching through the arts. I have experience helping people with stress, low self esteem, depression (including suicidal ideation and non-suicidal self-injury), anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, family dynamics, grief/loss, addiction, emotional dysregulation, personality disorders, multicultural issues, communication, attachment, LGBTQ+ issues, ADHD, body image, and more. When I'm not at work, you'll find me singing with my soul band, exploring the world, trying and sharing new recipes, laughing with friends, reading lots of books, and enjoying nature.
