More about me

Licensing: MSW, LCSW, CCATP
Years in Practice: 3
State: VA

Welcome to the Better Help Community. Thank you for trusting us to help you. My name is Kristin Scott-Groves and I am licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in Colorado, South Carolina, Florida, and Virginia. I have worked as a clinical therapist and college professor, teaching psychology of lifespan development. I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Master of Social Work degree. I currently hold a certification as a Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP), Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), and a certification in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (C-DBT). I have worked with different populations including military members and their families, as well as children, adolescents, and teenagers. My experience includes working with individuals with anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, relationship issues, self-esteem, parenting, and adjustment to change.

My approach to therapy is client centered. You are the expert on your life and you determine the direction and depth of therapy. Through a strengths-based and solutions-focused lens, I help guide clients in identifying strengths and developing treatment plans that accomplish their goals. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I assist clients in exploring relationships among thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This can help clients find the unhelpful and unhealthy thought patterns as well as learn healthier ways of thinking.

I applaud you for taking the first step in better health. I know that starting something new can be scary. If you are ready to take the next step in making healthy changes in your life, I will work with you on your path to success.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I started therapy knowing I had some thoughts an feelings I wanted to work through but not knowing how it would go. I’m so grateful BetterHelp matched me with Kristin. She’s compassionate and thoughtful and makes me feel seen and heard. I’ve learned new ways to see myself as well as process my thoughts and feelings, all of which have helped me move through life in a more positive way. My experience with Kristin has been wonderful—everything I hoped therapy would be.

Kristin has been amazing! She has been a really great match for me and her skillset really speaks to what I need. Kirstin has helped me understand where I have been stuck and shared some tools and ideas with me on how to move forward with clarity and control. I love that she is approachable and has a great sense of humor, honest and supportive. These are really nice additional qualities as they are key in my own ability to feel comfortable with her and to be in a safe 'space' discussing my process and situation.

Kristin, Thank you for helping me navigate through this long journey in my life.

Overall

I’ve only had one video conference so far, but I’m comfortable saying that it’s enough to convince me to stay on BetterHelp for a while. Aside from spotty wifi [on my end], the conference went smooth! I worked through some background info, and Kristin was my Palmer! I feel comfortable moving forward with her, and I have fresh hope that I can have a better life.

Kristin is a great counselor. I really like how she repeats back what I’m saying at times to know that we’re on the same page. She is also very encouraging.

H.A.·Dec 31, 2020

Overall

When I first spoke to a counselor at Betterhelp, I was skeptical because she didn't seem like she knew the information she should know in order to help me get over my hurdles. Then I transferred to Kristin and in just one session, she made me feel 10x more confident in my ability to handle stress and anxiety. She is kind, patient, understanding, a good listener, and addresses my concerns and needs in a professional, timely, and empathetic manner. She truly is a blessing.

Overall

Kristin Scott-Groves is helping me to reconnect with myself in a way I would have never felt possible after many years in a toxic relationship. Her thoughtful comments and questions have really challenged me, and her suggestions for dealing with my anxiety have been simple and easy to incorporate into my daily life. I'm starting to feel more joyful and in charge of my own feelings again!
