Scott Schutzman, MA, LMFT, CASAC, Marriage & Family Therapist in Poughkeepsie
Therapy respects and nurtures the power of the human spirit and its vast capacity for development and transformation. My approach emphasizes compassion and communication as key components in building, healing, and maintaining healthy relationships. I believe that encouragement, understanding, knowledge and action promote growth in the family system and in each individual family member. Having practiced meditation for the past 25 years, I integrate mindfulness techniques to lower stress and increase mental clarity.
While working extensively with those struggling with addiction and substance abuse, couples and families are my area of clinical focus and expertise. Additionally, I have significant professional experience in working with adolescents and children.
With over 25 years in the performing arts as actor, director and creative coach, I have combined my profound understanding of human behavior with depth psychology and emotional connection to bring about real and lasting change for individuals, couples and families.
