Dr. Giovanni Scott, Psy.D.
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
My training includes extensive work with children as young as 5, adolescents, adults, couples
and families. When working with children, parent/guardian consultations are essential, as they
are partners in the healing of their children. It is the combined efforts of child, parent, teacher
and psychologist that result in success.
I have developed competency in providing evaluations of psychoeducational, psychological,
and emotional functioning. I provide comprehensive feedback and make recommendations that
support optimizing your life and your performance. I can also avail myself for consultation.
As a psychologist, I enjoy helping people to improve their
functioning. It is through a thorough assessment and
individualized approach that I seek to understand a person's
difficulties. To achieve that, I assess each patient in the context
of his/her culture, faith and ethnicity. Additionally, I seek to help
patients better understand their motivations and the impact of
belief systems on their choices and behaviors.
