My Education and Experience

Hello, I’m Scott (he/him).  I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and graduate of The University of Tennessee Knoxville where I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture and Landscape Design and a Master of Science in Social Work. My prior experience and careers include business management, non-profit management, and serving my community for seven years as a law enforcement officer.  I began providing clinical services in an outpatient setting that utilized a community mental health model and spent the last six years serving people with substance use disorders/co-occurring mental health disorders in a residential and outpatient chemical dependency treatment center.  I am past board member and treasurer for The Symposium for the Advancement of Family Therapy, I teach suicide prevention in the community as a QPR Gatekeeper Instructor and am a member of The University of Tennessee College of Social Work Advisory Council.  In my spare time, I sell real estate which I have done for 14 years and am adjunct faculty in the UTK College of Social Work teaching substance abuse and social welfare courses.  I also collect crazy socks and eat way too many Starburst jelly beans.
