Christina M. Scott LPCC-S
Working as a professional counselor since 2015 I have had experience in multiple settings with a variety of clients. From working in a university counseling center to providing treatment for substance use in a residential facility to seeing kids and their families in a school-based setting, I have learned that each of us has a story to tell. I have been humbled by the stories others have shared with me, and these shared experiences in therapy have also contributed to my own story.
We will use a Narrative approach in your therapy. You are in charge of your story. While you may not be able to write in a time machine and travel back to change the past, I can help you rewrite your story in a way that is meaningful and lets you move forward. We will also pull from Positive Psychology, which is a strengths-based approach that takes the conversation of "What's wrong with you?" to "What's strong with you?" When we elevate our strengths, the challenges naturally fall. We can also incorporate other treatment approaches, such as CBT, DBT, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, and Jungian. The most important thing is bringing to our sessions what you like and what is meaningful to you.

What is mental health counseling?
Counseling can prove beneficial to different people at various points in their life. Professional counseling offers an opportunity for motivated individuals to seek therapeutic guidance and feedback as they develop the tools to better navigate life. A trained and licensed mental health counselor can act as a sounding board to assist clients in bringing forth their inner strengths and helping them change the direction of their life story.
How does counseling through RAC work?
Rising Action Counseling is an online private practice offering telehealth psychotherapy services. That means that all counseling sessions are conducted online and virtually through a video platform.
How do I get started?
If you are considering therapy, simply call or email me to schedule your free 20-minute consultation. During this time, you will have the opportunity to meet with a licensed professional through video and discuss your current needs to see if this is a good fit for you. After this consultation, you may schedule an initial session with me, which is when we will collaborate in assessing your current needs and develop a plan to help you reach your goals. See the Contact section for more info.
What do I need to do before my first appointment?
You will be provided intake paperwork to complete prior to the initial counseling session. Simply send the completed paperwork back to me before you begin your scheduled session.
How often should I go to therapy and for how long?
Once we meet to discuss your needs and goals for therapy, we will collaborate to create a counseling plan and schedule that best fits you. During your time in therapy, we will regularly check in with one another to gauge how therapy is progressing.
