MA, MBA, LPC, LCDC — Clinical Director
Scott has been a dedicated member of the Origins team since 2014, and in his current role, oversees all programs in South Padre Island. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, a Certified Anger Resolution Therapist, and a Certified Six Sigma Black Belt. Scott is passionate about both 12-Step philosophies and the treatment model of Origins, as these principles have been an integral part of his personal recovery from addiction and alcoholism.
From Boise State University, Scott holds both a bachelor’s in sociology and an MBA. From Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies, he holds a master’s in addiction studies. Working in treatment is a departure from his previous career. Still, Scott is convinced that helping others recover from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body is his ultimate purpose in life.
