As a first year professional in 1985, her clients had the lowest recidivism rate of any therapist in a 200 bed hospital. At a renowned treatment center, she was granted The Alumni Recognition Award, as one of three recipients out of 285 staff members. Over the last 34 years she has published in peer review journals, magazines, newsletters and she has written chapters for textbooks. Her research about self-mutilation by dissociative disordered individuals and her theory of creative arts therapy for trauma and addiction have been published in peer review journals in the US and abroad. She has also published regarding the psychology of human slavery and ritual cults.
Dr. Scott has run a local site graduate program in counseling psychology, worked as the clinical director for several treatment centers, taught medical doctors how to provide art therapy for physical illness, and she has hosted her own TV show for 2 years.

Dr. Scott, who is also an artist, a certified interfaith spiritual director, and a Reiki Master continues to contribute to the fields of addiction and trauma with a deep sense of passion and commitment.
