What People Say About Scott Barrella, MSW

Scott runs a program that is life changing. When you think of an anger management class, you’d probably think there would be a bunch of angry men in an very uncomfortable room. The exact opposite! There’s no attitude, no egos, no tough guys. Like I said, exact opposite. After a short time it seems like everyone eventually drops their guard and really opens up. We talk, support each other, and give advice to one another. Even though it’s court ordered for me to be there, I look forward to seeing Scott and meeting up with these guys each anever week.

Scott Barella has been a wonderful and informed asset to me while i navigate a rather contentious divorce. His insight to human interactions and personality traits that appear during such a situation as mine has been very helpful to me getting through my situation. I cannot thank him enough for all he has done.

Excellent person and therapist! Scott takes his time and really relates to me and my personal issues. As a result of my counseling with Scott, I have improved my coworker relationships, recently received a promotion and found a new spiritual path. I am really managing to improve my overall communication skills and the results show!

Dr. Barrella was a huge help to me and my kids. I have seen other therapists in the past but was not getting much out of those sessions. He has wonderful feedback, insight and was especially knowledgeable and approachable. Scott also answers the same day when I leave him messages. I have only great things to say about his services. Co-parenting and challenges with children are his specialty areas. Great therapist!!

Scott is a top professional with wonderful easy tone and professional approach. He knows his stuff!! He is always able to answer immediate questions and has great insight. He cares about the patients and also has a great referral base. He is court-approved for tougher family law cases as mine was. My kids and I are better because of his assistance.
