B. Scott Thigpen

Therapist, LMHC

Founder and Owner

Life can be challenging as a man, husband, and father. My life experiences, both success and failures, are what I pull from the most to help my clients get where they need to be. I've been counseling in private practice for over 14 years. I've been married for 21 years, and my wife and I have three children (ages 14, 16, & 18). I love to meet people where they're at in life and help them get to where they want to be. I'm happy to help you unpack some of the unhealthy patterns or habits that keep coming up and find ways to improve the quality of your life. This is much more than me just sitting, listening, and nodding my head. I'm going to take an active role in guiding you on making genuine and lasting changes to your life. 

My specialties in working with men are anger, relationships, addictions, stress, anxiety, career, and the like. Many of these themes are interwoven and overlap in many ways. For couples therapy many of the common themes that come up are communication, needs, empathy, trust, understanding, and being vulnerable. Relationships aren't easy. I'm here to help!

Melissa Quinn

Therapist, LMHC

I believe it's important to acknowledge the past and work through trauma in order to create relational healing with ourselves and others. I am passionate about creating, maintaining and nourishing relationships including the one you have with yourself. I have been married to my husband for 10 years and we have three children. I understand how chaotic and overwhelming life can be. I have a Bachelor of Science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a Master of Arts at the University of Central Florida in Counselor Education, Level I training in Gottman couples therapy and I am trained as an EMDR therapist - I use an eclectic approach, pulling from my education, training and life experience to create a safe space where we can break unhealthy cycles together. I would love to walk alongside you as we begin to unpack the past, process the present and prepare for the future, helping you attract the relationships and life you want.

I've had experiences with different therapists for different things over the years. Scott was fantastic. He helped me with some anger management therapy and was very effective.

He was able to connect on a personal level and give sound, actionable advice that led to real progress. He would often share relatable experiences he's had which makes the therapy relationship feel like a partnership in working toward improvement.

He was very flexible with my schedule and provided video chat service which I appreciated. He would follow up with me via text from time to time between sessions at no added cost, which I believe is very important in staying accountable when trying to make lifestyle changes."
