Atsede Scarseth

Atsede Scarseth, MA, Registered Psychotherapist  is an avid nature and animal lover that was raised in NY (both Manhattan and Ithaca), and attended Alfred University in western NY, to study Clinical Counseling Psychology. She recently completed her Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from  Northwestern University. She had the idea of working with people in an intimate yet professional way for a long time, but every year since she began her undergraduate career, the idea has been molded into a concrete career path. She has seen her professional path all the more clearly since moving to the mountains. Her hope is to guide those in need towards healthy lifestyle choices and increase the enrichment of people’s lives. She feels that everyone deserves the chance to function as his or her own advocate and feels grateful to have the ability to facilitate that opportunity, one person, couple, and family system at a time. Her ultimate goal is to help people reconnect with nature in a meaningful and sustainable way, which provides opportunities for wellness outside of the therapy room.

Specialty Areas Include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Couples Counseling
  • Adolescents and Adults
  • Life Transitions

Hours of availability: Open to see clients Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 5:30pm-8:30pm, and every other Saturday from 10am-2pm
