Scott Fleming

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

About

Scott Fleming has nearly twenty years of experience journeying with people who have reached their life’s peaks and those that have encountered their lowest valleys. His experience includes working in acute care hospitals, clinics, church counseling centers, and private practice. In addition, he’s held academic and leadership positions in various settings for his entire career. He is a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern (FL IMH 22614) and a seasoned Certified Pastoral Counselor.

Combining the latest best evidence-based practices, clinical expertise, and other psychological advancements with a personalized approach, he cares for patients experiencing the emotional, spiritual, and psychological toll that comes with a variety of conditions and situations. Scott strives to be person-centered yet solution-focused in his approach. He counsels from a relational counseling model, holding to the core belief that an individual cannot heal or grow outside the context of meaningful relationships.

Scott believes each person has a unique and sacred story justifying that treatment plans should be genuinely crafted with the client in mind. He has a gift for creating a safe place for people to process their pain and bond with his clients in meaningful ways. Scott subscribes to an eclectic, integrated approach customized to your unique story incorporating elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Adlerian theory, Narrative techniques, solution-focused results, and existential principles. He seeks to partner with every patient in their healing process - mutually collaborative and committed to the process.

Scott considers the counseling relationship to be sacred and not one to be taken lightly. It takes much courage to step into counseling, whether it’s your first time or the first time in a while. In meeting with a new counselor, clients often secretly hope that this relationship works out so they don’t have to start over or walk away from therapy. This truth is something Scott understands and values. Whatever brings you into counseling, Scott aims to cultivate a grace-filled environment where you will be met without judgment.

Scott specializes in working with clergy, healthcare professionals, first responders, educators, and military personnel.

Issues he treats include Anxiety, Coping Issues, Depression, Family Conflict, Moral Injury, Compassion Fatigue / Burnout, Peer Relationships, Relationship Issues, Self Esteem, Stress, Caregiver Stress, and vicarious trauma.

Whether you’re encountering a bump in the road or a boulder in your path, Scott would be honored to walk with you toward your desired goals.

About

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Mental Health Counselor providing quality online telehealth services for adult residents of Florida, Virginia, Vermont, Massachusetts & Georgia. If you feel alone in what you are going through or stuck in the same toxic cycle of negative emotions and behaviors, I can help! Since the start of my career in 2006 I have worked with victims of trauma and abuse, individuals in recovery, women, and high- level executives. My clients come to therapy seeking relief from persistent depression, anxiety, the residual impacts of trauma, low self-esteem, career stress, and the general life stress of living through a pandemic.

My approach to working with clients is genuine, down to earth, practical, and always informed by evidence-based practices. The therapy hour quickly becomes a time when clients can share their deepest fears and concerns without fear of judgment. Clients walk away with practical techniques specific to their personal goals.

Life's demands don't stop when there is a pandemic, or we experience a crisis or loss. It can be easy to neglect our own mental wellness, feel disconnected, become overwhelmed or feel trapped by our circumstances. You deserve to be seen. To live a life that is intentional, inspired, and peaceful. Seeking counseling is a brave step in the right direction.
