Thank you for taking the time to visit my site.
I have had the privilege of being a licensed therapist serving the Orange County area for over the last 15 years.
I have extensive experience working with Couples, Individuals and Teens. I have a passion to help those who are struggling to feel authentic ~ I enjoy walking alongside others as they begin to see life differently; recognizing that they don’t have to stay stuck in whatever challenges they are facing.
I work in many areas including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, as well as life transitions such as divorce or separation and parenting issues.
In the last 10 years I have also had the distinct honor to work with baby loss moms and families. I am a certified Bereavement Care provider, and as a still mother I have a unique understanding of this traumatic journey, and as a result, have had the opportunity to release my first book, “Hope Beyond an Empty Cradle”. My hope and prayer is that this book brings healing for those impacted by child loss.
I know that seeking help may feel unnerving and takes a great deal of courage. I am encouraged that you are seeking options. You CAN manage life better, feel authentic, have better relationships, and see situations more clearly.
It would be a privilege to help you.
Tens of thousands of women and families every year lose a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death. The statistics are sobering—between 10 and 25 percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage, 1 percent end in stillbirth, and over 21,000 babies die annually before their first birthday. But statistics alone cannot capture the depth of the hurt. Each loss is personal and devastating. No woman is prepared to lose a baby, and caregivers are often unsure of how best to help. In Hope Beyond an Empty Cradle, therapist Hallie Scott shares the story of her own child, Abigail, who was stillborn. Drawing from her experience and what she has learned from walking with other families who have lost children, she takes readers through a healing process that makes space for heartbreak, despair, guilt, questions, and anger. Those seeking to care for these families, too, will find trustworthy advice for how best to help. Life is never the same in the wake of child loss, but a new normal is possible.
