• About Scott

    My practice specializes in treating individuals (adolescents and adults) and couples in way that is that respects and values the uniqueness of each client, acknowledges the spiritual nature of all people, and seeks to empower them with the skills and hope to manage their own lives in the most effective way possible

    As someone who has been a client as well as a clinician, I can appreciate and respect the courage it takes to seek help for our, emotional, relational, spiritual struggles in life. As a therapist, it is a privilege to walk alongside people for part of their life journey, helping to discover their own God-given uniqueness, and recover their ability to effectively manage their own lives in the midst of an increasingly uncertain world.

    I graduated from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Charlotte with a Master’s Degree in Christian Counseling. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the state of North Carolina. I am also a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and a Certified Partner Trauma Therapist (CPTT) through the International Institute for Trauma & Addiction Professionals (IITAP).

    Prior to starting Recovering Hope Counseling in 2017, I have been working as a therapist since 2012, helping couples, individuals, and groups with relationship, addiction, and mental health problems, including anxiety and depression, grief and loss, dual diagnosis (co-occurring mental health and addictive disorders), personality disorders, and other problems in living.

    As a former Christian missionary in Spain, I feel comfortable working with people from a variety of ministry contexts, as well as people with no spiritual training or background. I take a respectful, holistic approach to my work, which values each person as a unique individual created by God with a purpose for their life. I have been happily married to the wonderful and amazing Ana for thirty one years and am the proud adoptive father of a three-year old Australian Shepherd named Finnegan.

    I would be honored to answer any other questions you may have, and can be reached by phone at (980) 446-3190 or by email at scott@recoveringhopecounseling.com. I look forward to hearing from you soon, and to have the privilege of working with you in the future.
