Kim Scott, LMFT

I have been a licensed marriage, family, and child therapist for over 30 years and still love every day of my job. Helping people achieve their highest potential is my life passion. I received my B.A. Degree from California State University, Northridge in Psychology, and my M.A. Degree from Azusa Pacific University in Marriage, Family and Child Counseling. My license number is MFC21184.  

In counseling, I will listen and support you throughout the depths of your personal winter and will help you find the invincible summer that lies within.  There are times in life when we all struggle, but working together we can turn your struggles into transition points for personal growth. I use a full array of clinical approaches to help my clients find answers to the challenges that bring them into therapy. 

 

By listening to you, I am able to customize your treatment plan. My approach is eclectic and always designed to meet my client’s individual needs. My counseling provides a safe place to share your pain, and an environment conducive to understanding and resolving your toughest challenges.
