Scott R. Schneider M.A., LPC, CSAT Candidate

Many of us are riddled with doubt and fear – wrestling with the question “Do I have what it takes?” These doubts and fears can cause anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, and more. Maybe past mistakes or events are causing a disturbance in your present and restricting your future – there is hope.

I am a dedicated professional counselor who believes that everyone has what it takes to thrive. My goal is to provide an environment in which there is no judgment – only acceptance. I want to build a safe place where you can realize the assets and strengths that are within you.

I have advanced training in pastoral counseling, sex/process addictions, substance/alcohol addictions, trauma (From childhood neglect and abuse, etc.), and relationship/couples counseling. In addition, I have over 20 years of experience in creating and leading groups.

I just completed advanced training in sex addiction therapy and have a new designation, CSAT Candidate. I have provided leadership in business as well as the church. Contact me about workshops in church and business settings to develop leadership and to help people build stronger relationships.
