Hello! My name is Scarlett, and I hope to work with you soon!
As a therapist, I utilize person centered therapy to ensure my clients are getting what they want out of therapy and do not have to go on their journey alone. I seek to provide a warm, nurturing, and safe environment for clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I especially welcome members of the LGBTQIA+ community. I work well with clients of all ages and focus on children and teens. I have experience working with many different disorders through my time in Intensive In-Home and training in Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy.
I graduated from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and then received my Master of Social Work from North Carolina State University. After spending some time working at a hospital for eating disorders, I learned to incorporate elements of Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy into the therapeutic services that I provide. I also utilize elements of Applied Behavior Analysis from my time working with children with Autism as a Registered Behavior Technician. I believe in empowering my clients with a blend of psychoeducation, motivational interviewing, and transforming maladaptive behaviors such as self-harm into calming coping skills.
I love meeting new people and doing everything in my power to make their lives easier and days brighter! I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with eating disorders, autism, depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, adjustment disorders, and other disorders.
