Kim Chaves Scott, MC, LPC, Counselor in Tempe
I am passionate about walking alongside individuals as they make sense of their own unique story, and its impact on them. For those who desire a faith based perspective, I enjoy helping people find healing within the context of their relationship with God. It is within healthy, connected relationships that healing takes place. My approach with clients includes collaboratively building a strong, therapeutic relationship that will create a foundation for healing.
My experience includes addressing relationship dynamics and using EMDR--a trauma treatment model. I spent five years as an adjunct professor at Arizona Christian University--teaching classes related to marriage, family, and parenting. My training includes certifications in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and the Prepare/Enrich Marital Assessment.
My practice has been enhanced by years of counseling children, building creativity into my approach--as well as a knowledge of life's influential, developmental stages. Through the process of my own healing journey, I have learned how powerful relational vulnerability can be in bringing about change.
