Ryan Scott, PhD

Licensed Psychologist, Director of Vista


I am director of a group practice of skilled therapists.  We focus on individual, couples, and family counseling for depression, anxiety, ADHD, parenting, and psychological evaluations. 

I also consult with other group practice owners, as well as businesses in other industries, in how to support a psychologically-healthy workplace that promotes the health of the business and the employees.

My therapeutic approach is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I work with children, adolescents, and adults.  It is hoped that you will find the services I offer to help improve your life and remove roadblocks to your personal growth. The relationship is central to the successful outcome of counseling, therapy, and consultation.

Among the issues people work through with me include  anxiety, depression,  mindfulness, trauma/ PTSD,career development, stress management, crisis intervention, grief/loss issues, and spiritual growth. I provide services through a number of intervention modes. These include counseling, evaluations (including intelligence, ADHD, and personality testing), presentations, and clinical supervision of therapists-in-training. 

I take a proactive approach, and encourage my clients to do the same.  I often encourage my clients to use new coping strategies between our sessions to maximize benefit.  This typically includes suggested readings, developing healthy coping strategies,  and an action orientation towards achievable goals for change.
