Live is difficult. We are all in recovery. The space between our ideals and behavior lies our Hero’s Journey. We are emotional creatures that occasionally think. This reactivity causes suffering due to our lack of full integration (Mind, Body, Spirit). What is optional? How long, how deep and who else is affected? We either transmit or transform our pain/suffering. Our activation is a doorway to healing. Awareness breeds options/choices to engage in a way that may provide FLOW (Fun, Loving, Open, Willing). We cannot fully discovery or uncover alone.

P. Scott Sweet
Therapist, LCSW, LCAC
Scott enjoys working with adolescents, adults, couples and families who are facing challenges that affect their quality of life. He feels that he is in the “better” business, as life might not be all that bad, yet we could all benefit from intentions of “being better”.
He sees individuals who struggle with anger, anxiety, depression and mood swings, which may be coupled with addictive thinking or behaviors, to help find calm amidst the chaos in one’s life.
Scott believes couples are a system, yet individually bring their own pain that is transmitted to one’s partner. He is committed to helping couples transform their own pain with the support of their partner to be available to the joys of a committed partnership.
Scott understands the nuances of reactive behavior and brain development, and he helps his clients navigate this difficult passage of understanding brain, mind and relationship integration. This allows one to experience personal growth, freedom and awareness in their life. An emphasis of his work is to invite and develop emotional intelligence skills.
Scott strives to create a safe environment where individuals can explore their issues. With his easy, approachable manner and supportive approach, he helps identify one’s strengths, explore options and rely on their own wisdom.
