He is originally from Rochester, and he and his family moved to Dodge Center 3 years ago to be close to his wife's family.

The other part of Scott’s business focuses on providing these same services for people in the community. There is a nationwide crisis right now of people who need help not being able to get help when they need it. When they decide they need help, it may take weeks or months for one to open up, and that could be disastrous. Scott commented, "One of the things that is frustrating is knowing that when a person needs services, they have to wait so long for an appointment with a professional. My goal is to be able to see that person within 72 hours."
I asked him about his method of supporting clients, and he brought up a plethora of reasons why online visits work so well. First of all, the website he uses is protected, and HIPPA compliant. What this means is, nobody will know you are seeing a clinician, and that erases the stigma that goes along with asking for help. The website is secure, so your information and sessions are confidential. No one will know you are getting support unless you tell them. His practice is cash based, so not even your insurance company will know you are seeking his help. No car parked outside an office, and you are having your appointment at your home, so you don't have to go anywhere. Evening and early morning appointments are available so you can even do your appointment in your pajamas!
There is a lot of research that says the efficacy of this method of providing coaching, counseling, and therapy is just as effective as when it is done in person and the results are as good as or better than traditional in-person methods. Think about it....you go online, fill out your form, choose your appointment time that is convenient for your schedule, and don't have to get dressed, hop in your car and drive to your appointment. It is a totally non-invasive, confidential and comfortable way to help you with whatever issues you are facing.
