About Scott Wood

It is always a good idea to consider your source when evaluating commentary (in which category blog posts qualify).  So here is a little about me.

I am a native of Southern California and reside in the San Diego area.  I am 60 years old, have been married for 37 years and have two daughters (35 & 33).

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist working in private practice in San Diego, California.  For those familiar with the San Diego area, my office is in Rancho Bernardo.

I worked in banking for 25 years before leaving to return to graduate school to study marriage and family therapy.

If you read much of my stuff, you will find that I have a passion for helping couples find the satisfying marriage that they had hoped for when they entered into the relationship.  Often this involves helping them heal from emotional wounds sustained during the relationship.  Sometimes these wounds are from affairs, pornography, and other sexual acting out.  I have specialized training to assess for and treat sexual addiction and to treat trauma.

Educational background:

  • Master of Arts, Marital and Family Therapy, Bethel Seminary, San Diego
  • Master of Business Administration, Pepperdine University
  • Bachelor of Arts, Psychology, University of California, San Diego

Additional specialized training:

  • Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy externship
  • Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy core skills
  • Gottman Method Couples Therapy (Level 1, 2, & 3)
  • Restoration Therapy
  • Collaborative Couples Therapy
  • Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy
  • PREPARE-ENRICH pre-marital and marriage counseling
