About Me

Hello, this is Scott Anstadt, Ph.D, LCSW. I have been working with couples and family counseling for over 30 years. My approach is straightforward and direct. Couples meet together for sessions. We begin by getting to know each other in ways we may never have considered. We cover our family histories and patterns of couple's realtions over several generations. This helps us to see how we integrate our personalities and where there may be some current barriers and rough spots. After that, we look at a bit of our childhoods, to see what issues we may have brought to our current relationship. We go into practical assessment and skill building of communication, empathy, and compassion for each other as we look at how we truly can be a couple to nurture and love each other in mutual regard. Out framework uses an eclectic approach which takes the expertise of many theoretical practices including: Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioral, Person Centered, and Existential. We develop meaningful goals with weekly activities that help fortify our understanding of each other. We can discover our relationship anew.

Dr. Anstadt helped us greatly with communication and overcoming infidelity. We are grateful for the tools he has given us to be open and honest with each other, as well as seeing each other's perspectives.

An extremely patient and positive therapist.

I feel like he is a good therapist. He doesn't try to apply "just the books say" and gave me the feeling of I am working with an actual human therapist, not a CBT bot.

Dr. Anstadt is amazing. I appreciate him always reaching out to make sure things are going smoothly in between our sessions. He follows up and genuinely cares about my situation. I would recommend Dr. Anstadt to anyone who is seeking insight on coparenting and new relationships after divorce. Thank you for everything!
