Hope A. Scott

Hi! My name is Hope A. Scott. I’m a precious, tiny and independent doggie. They say that I march to my own little drum and have nicknamed me “cutie” because of my cute prancing/hopping walk. I like my bed and rest in it throughout the day and sleep there peacefully in my office.  I’m a lap dog, but I am a very sweet girl and a nice companion for my mommy's clients.

Anger Management

Has life become a constant struggle? Do you often feel sad, angry or hopeless? Do your mood change drastically depending on the day or time of year. Have emotions or past negative experiences triggered an addiction or compulsive behavior? 

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. (American Psychological Association, 2015). If you feel that your anger is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might consider counseling to learn how to handle it better.

Marriage & Couple Counseling

Are you struggling to connect and communicate with your partner? Is it difficult to talk with your partner about what you want and need? Do you feel like you and your partner often misunderstand each other? Do you and your partner have frequent verbal arguments? What if your relationship issues are triggered by financial situations or jealously.

Marriage Counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.

Today, math is getting more and more difficult for students of all ages. The tutoring center will increase your child’s learning and problem-solving skills for future success.


Family Violence Intervention Program (FVIP)

Family Violence Intervention Program (FVIP) is 24-week education programs designed to help abusers take responsibility for their violence.  The programs are designed to help batterers understand that the use of power, control and violence are barriers to a healthy relationship.  Groups discuss non-violent alternatives and the role that power and control plays in their intimate relationship.

Child & Teen Behavior

 Are you worried about your child's well-being? Are you concerned about your child or teen's emotional state or behavior? Has your child been the victim of abuse, trauma or bullying?

Or maybe your child"s rebellious behavior has negatively impacted your family.

Where Do You Draw the Line?

As a parent, how do you know for sure if your child’s behavior has crossed the line and become truly disrespectful? I believe the distinction between mild rebelliousness and disrespect has to be drawn very clearly. Here’s how you determine whether or not your child has gone too far. When he is being rude or complaining that something isn’t fair, ask yourself, “Is my child expressing general frustration about the injustices or challenges of life, or is he being deliberately hurtful, condescending or abusive?”

I look at it this way: when your child rolls his eyes and stomps up the stairs, it’s fairly harmless. It’s very different from saying, “You’re a jerk. You can’t make me. I don’t care what the rules are, I’m not doing it!” Make no mistake, there is a distinction between eye-rolling and your child shouting, “You’re stupid.” I think parents need to really understand this difference at a core level.

Parenting & Life Skills

Every parent wants the best for their love ones. Most parents are not prepared or know how to present their child with the apparatus to become successful. Some need advice on how to help their child avoid the biggest juvenile behavior issues such as substance abuse, misbehavior, dropping out school, pregnancy, communication skills, single parenting, and violence. These issues can have an effect on children for the rest of their lives.
