About Me

Dr. Scott Boles is a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst who works with adults, couples, adolescents, and children, as well as consults with parents on matters of child development and parenting. 


He has over 30 years of experience in the field and provides a safe, comfortable, and private setting in which you can talk confidentially about your concerns. 


Dr. Boles provides help for a wide range of problems but the most common ones are feelings of anxiety, depression, dissatisfaction with oneself and/or others, relationship difficulties, concerns about work and career, and unfulfilled aspirations. 


His approach is empathic, thoughtful, and straightforward. He fully appreciates that no two individuals or families are exactly alike and works actively and collaboratively to find solutions to your unique circumstances.
