These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Scott Shepherd. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with ReGain might be different.
Scott is very compassionate and honest. He has a lot of life experience and is able to understand both of our points of view. He helps us both re focus on our relationship and goals moving forward, rather than dwelling on the past.
Scott is a skilled listener who has a deep tool box for the problems my husband and I are dealing with as individuals and as a couple. I appreciate his forward facing approach- only emphasizing the past where it is impacting the present.
Scott is someone I feel comfortable talking to and he is very knowledgeable!
