Dr Scott Irwin

Integrative Health & Complimentary Medicine

Dr. Scott is an innovator in the fields of Transpersonal Psychology and Integrative & Complementary Medicine. Both philosophical approaches are designed to treat the whole person, not just the disease.

"I have been powerfully influenced by the great insights and works of Victor Frankl and Milton Erickson's creative breakthroughs in human intervention. In my practice, I extract the most practical and effective forms of action and communication from a variety of disciplines: Strategic Intervention, Ericksonian Therapy, Strategic Family Therapy, Human Needs Psychology, Organizational Psychology, Neurolinguistics, Ro-Hun Therapy and others."

Dr. Scott works with individuals, couples, families and groups assisting them with overcoming problems and reaching their goals. He is devoted to helping people achieve health, happiness, and well-balanced lives, and has witnessed the power of Transpersonal Psychology to create remarkable transformations in the lives of his clients. Transpersonal Psychology focuses on the health of a person's spirit with an emphasis on a person's spiritual path during one's life.
