Dale Scudder, M.A.
"My goal is to empower individuals so that they may live their most fulfilling lives. I aim to create a supportive, safe space for individuals to honestly explore themselves. Through this self-exploration we have the opportunity to define one’s personalized goals and understand the formation of maladaptive thoughts and behaviors interfering with goal achievement. A strengthened sense of self-awareness allows for the establishment of a healthier internal dialogue, which combined with practical skill development, promotes lasting positive change."
