Scott Jones, Counselor Resident

  • Master of Divinity (MDiv), Covenant Theological Seminary

  • Master of Arts in Counseling (MA), Covenant Theological Seminary 

Scott believes that good counseling is built upon a safe and secure relationship that nurtures a client’s sense of agency and dignity. His approach is to work from a relational basis, and empower the client through an integrated approach that includes interpersonal, cognitive, emotional, and, if welcomed, spiritual aspects. Scott has worked in individual and couples counseling, helping clients with relationship issues, anxiety, stress, grief, family dysfunction, and various forms of trauma. He offers a willingness to engage in a creative therapeutic process, and he is comfortable with difficult matters, providing a non-judgmental environment for safe discussion. Scott has a special interest in understanding various streams and expressions of popular culture, and applying them for the benefit of counseling.

Scott, his wife, Trina, and their four children just moved here from St. Louis and attend Redeemer.
