Our Story

Our Founder Dr. Theresa Scott has worked in the behavioral health field since 1999. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Lemoyne College in Syracuse, New York and continued her graduate education at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, where she received her Master of Arts and Doctor of Psychology degrees. Dr. Scott is licensed in the states of Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Dr. Scott has experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in a variety of treatment settings including inpatient units, partial hospitalization programs, community mental health centers, private practice, and a VA hospital. Additionally, she has worked as a consultant for the Department of Human Services, Children’s Bureau in Pennsylvania.

As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Scott provides individual and group therapy to children and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, defiant/disruptive behaviors, grief, loss, separation, parent-child relational problems, and  autism spectrum disorders. She has extensive experience in conducting psychological evaluations for children and adolescents experiencing emotional and behavioral problems, as well as developmental delays.

Dr. Scott utilizes cognitive-behavioral therapy, child-centered play therapy, and humanistic approaches in the treatment of children, adolescents and adults. Her approach to working with children and families is collaborative, developmentally sensitive, and relational. Successful treatment requires a collaborative process, so Dr. Scott will often involve pertinent individuals in a child’s life such as parents, relatives, school staff, pediatricians, and other therapists to help children reach and maintain their maximum potential.
