“Scott has a real gift for working with clients who are grieving the death of someone beloved. I have observed his work both at The Healing Center and with Soaring Spirits International, organizations focused on supporting widowed people as they rebuild their lives post-loss. Scott is an incredibly skilled therapist as well as a passionate professional whose work with grieving individuals fosters both hope and healing. I am thrilled that his practice is focused on people who are in the midst of one of the most challenging times in their life. I highly recommend Scott as a grief therapist as well as a group facilitator. He is the first person I think of when someone asks me for a referral to an excellent grief therapist in the Seattle area. ”

“I had the distinct pleasure of supervising Scott for many years. I observed not only his deep compassion for grief work, but also his outstanding ability to form true connections with his clients. Scott comes to this work as a person with both true life experience and high quality clinical skills. He is revered by many for good reason.”

"I have witnessed Scott's incredible ability to be supportive and nurturing as a therapist to grieving adults. I have observed his compassionate guidance of clients through the difficult process of living after the death of a loved one. Because of his own experience with grief, Scott understands that each person's story is unique and that there is not one "right way" to grieve. Scott truly makes a difference in the lives of his clients."

"I was privileged to work with Scott at The Healing Center where he was the clinician and I was a volunteer co-facilitator. We met with small groups of people of all ages who had experienced the death of a partner. Scott has a unique ability to create a safe space where people can talk about their loss or feel free to just listen to others and learn from them. He understands that everyone’s journey through grief is unique and he respects the dignity of each person’s struggle. Scott’s personal experience with his own loss adds an important dimension to his interactions with clients and adds to the sense of safety and comfort. Clients value Scott’s insights and guidance through this painful process."
