Josalin Scott, LICSW

Philosophy of Care

Have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome, coping with everyday stressors, couple or family conflicts, coping with the loss of a loved pet, need a LGBTQ+ affirming therapist, or if you need assistance with family building stressors. Seeking help from a licensed therapist is the best way to put things into perspective. As a licensed psychotherapist I am committed to the well-being of all humans big and small. I am dedicated to going above and beyond to assist with helping people empower themselves and finding the answers they seek.

I implement effective psychotherapy methods such as Cognitive Behavioral, Interpersonal, Client Centered, and Humanistic which can be effective in assisting clients to instill self-understanding by encouraging them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and therapist alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, anxiety and pain can bring life-altering results. There is no judgment only compassion and a safe environment to heal.

My main area of specialty is helping individuals who are coping with depression, anxiety, ADHD/ADD diagnosis, self-harming, pet loss, family building concerns and LGBTQ+ matters. Over the years I have gained experience by working with individuals who are coping with emotional abuse, deportation of family members, death of loved ones and other painful experiences.

I also work with individuals who seek treatment for anger management and stress management. I look forward to the prospect of supporting you in conquering the problems you are presently dealing with!
