Scott Trefny, LPC,LMHC
“It is my goal as a therapist to help individuals develop the best versions of themselves, so that they can be the best partners, parents, family members, friends, employees or students that they can be. No one can be at their best all the time, but together we can find what works best for you. I am honored and grateful to be given the trust to help people enjoy life again.”
Scott’s passion is empowering clients to let go of their burdens and create new freedom of thought and action. Being stuck in old patterns can be onerous and you may feel heavy with trauma, challenging relationships or addiction. It can be difficult to know how to adapt when feeling this way, particularly with anxiety, depression or low self-worth. Scott believes that healing comes from building strong relationships with one another as well as fostering a positive relationship with oneself. There is value in having secure relationships with our loved ones, where partners and family members can rely on one another physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Using a relational direct approach when working with people, Scott builds a sense of hope while looking at what events lead to the struggles you are having, leading to more clarity in your life. Focusing on your strengths to find solutions, Scott believes in offering a safe space to explore your true self and working together to create a new story that allows for authenticity, community, and possibility. He specializes in interpersonal communication skills, (parent/child employee/employer spouse/partner).
Scott has experience working with clients who have a range of struggles, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, grief and bereavement, chronic pain/illness, difficult life transitions and relationship concerns. He completed both a BA in and Master’s in Psychology from City University of New York, and a Master’s in Clinical Psychology from Western Connecticut State University
