A Note From Scott

For nearly 30 years I have enjoyed providing a safe place for those who are struggling as we work together to lessen and eventually eliminate those struggles. Together we will explore those deeper feelings and thoughts that drive those struggles and then create new experiences that will strengthen you in the deepest parts of who you are. Not only will you be heard, accepted, and respected, but you will experience a “real” relationship with different relational responses than those unhelpful responses you received from hurtful relationships. You will be empowered to know who you are and risk expressing that in other relationships even if it is different. Risk trying out new ways of relating. Not be as overwhelmed by painful emotions, mistakes, failures, or sinful behaviors. Developing your voice and what you are competent in. Have the capacity for more intimate relationships where you get your needs met. Discover your passions and purpose that make your life most meaningful.

I have met with individuals from a variety of backgrounds with a variety of issues. I have done couples and family therapy but have more experience with individual therapy.

I live in Wabash, Indiana, with my wife Carrie. I have two grown sons and a daughter and seven wonderful grandchildren. One of my passions is creating a backyard full of unique experiences for my grandchildren like a zip line, trampoline, an obstacle course, a “Peter Pan” swing, slacker balance lines, a treehouse, an elaborate swing set, and a climbing mountain! Or I love taking them on “adventures.” I can often be found on Friday or Sunday nights at the local sprint car dirt track reading a book while they clean up the wrecks.

Counselor Competency

MyCounselor has as its aim to be the gold standard in faith-based mental health. Our counselors are required to have undergraduate studies in theology, practical ministry, or psychology and have completed a graduate (master’s) degree in mental health (professional counseling, clinical social work, marriage & family therapy, etc.).

  • We only hire around 2% of applicants
  • Require at least a Master’s Degree in Mental Health
  • 2-Year Post-Graduate Residency in Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC)
  • 400+ hours of Continuing Education each year

After submitting an application package that includes transcripts, references, and video responses to a structured interview, qualified candidates are invited into a multi-stage interview process. During the process candidates will meet with clinical supervisors, perform a mock therapy session, and participate in a training with the MyCounselor clinical team. If advanced from the final interview with the Director of Clinical Services, candidates are offered a position on the clinical team and matriculated into the MyCounselor residency.

During residency counselors complete multiple rotations of clinical training and experience with specific populations, including individuals, couples, families, and teens. Specifically, residents are trained in the MyCounselor proprietary model of care: Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC) as applied in practice with various presenting issues.

The thorough training our counselors receive in a broad array of specialized rotations equips them to address counseling concerns ranging from the common to the complex.
