Scott Sweet

Scott enjoys working with adolescents, adults, couples and families who are facing challenges that affect their quality of life.  He feels that he is in the “better” business, as life might not be all that bad, yet we could all benefit from intentions of “being better”.

He sees individuals who struggle with anger, anxiety, depression and mood swings, which may be coupled with addictive thinking or behaviors, to help find calm amidst the chaos in one’s life.

Scott believes couples are a system, yet individually bring their own pain that is transmitted to one’s partner.  He is committed to helping couples transform their own pain with the support of their partner to be available to the joys of a committed partnership.

Scott understands the nuances of reactive behavior and brain development, and he helps his clients navigate this difficult passage of understanding brain, mind and relationship integration.  This allows one to experience personal growth, freedom and awareness in their life.  An emphasis of his work is to invite and develop emotional intelligence skills.

He now offers Brainspotting (BSP), a leading edge neurobiological therapeutic tool to locate, focus, and process trauma, anxiety, depression and emotional pain.  This effective process has been known to release symptoms by processing in the deep parts of our brain.

Scott strives to create a safe environment where individuals can explore their issues.  With his easy, approachable manner and supportive approach, he helps identify one’s strengths, explore options and rely on their own wisdom.
