Scott Ostrowski, LCSW

Scott is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York State with 11 years of post-graduate experience. He is well-regarded for his creative and compassionate approach to working with individuals, couples, and families. For Scott, so much of what we understand as adversity and healing happens within a relational context. Early in his education, he became immersed in the world of family systems and understood the unique power that exists within healing relationships. Thus, it should come as no surprise that some of Scott’s favorite work resides in working with couples and families. Scott uses an integrative approach to relational healing drawing upon the wisdom of John and Julie Gottman, Esther Perel, and Terry Real among others.

Early in his career, Scott developed an understanding of the roles of trauma and adversity in understanding human experience. The fact that both harm and healing often occur within a relational context was not lost on him. As a result, he is able to incorporate a trauma-informed lens with the understanding that what happens to us can impact our neurobiology and subsequently, our mental health and wellbeing, as well as our ability to form and sustain healthy relationships. To that end, Scott is able to provide trauma resolution for individuals using modalities such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Internal Family Systems (IFS), as well as more conventional person-centered, solution-focused, and CBT-based interventions.

In his prior role, Scott served as a therapist in a private non-profit organization for many years and acted as supervisor and mentor to dozens of therapists and interns. He has presented on the topic of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) and Resilience to countless organizations and groups. He currently continues a part time role with that organization overseeing the development of programming, training, and operations, as well as continuing duties as supervisor, mentor, and training facilitator.

Scott received his Master of Social Work degree from Syracuse University following completion of his undergraduate program at Keuka College, majoring in Social Work. He has maintained licensure in New York State as an LMSW since 2012 and as an LCSW since 2017.
