He earned his bachelor’s degree from California State University at Fullerton, majoring in anthropology and minoring in psychology.
Still speaking in the third-person, even though I'm writing this, Dr. Scott’s early foundation in science will continue to inform and guide his approach to behavioral health and contributes to his literacy in real integrated care--he remains a passionate scientist-practitioner of evidence-based counseling and psychotherapy. Given his experiences with the natural world, Dr. Scott remains physically active with outdoor-nature pursuits and views the Earth’s wild, natural places as a primary spiritual support while living within our modern pace.
Thanks for reading, and if we don't meet personally, be well--and Peace.
