Online Condolences


  1. I have counted Scott as one of my best friends for many years since college. Time and distance watered down the contact. He reached out to me a year ago after opening a time capsule. I was touched. Scott was deeply interested in others and a loyal friend. I will remember and miss him.

  2. Scott’s playful intelligence, generous spirit, and loving nature will be so deeply missed by all who had the good fortune to have known him.

  3. I remember his welcoming and generosity when I first started private practice, and enjoyed many talks and consultations with him. So wise and kind.

  4. Scott was incredibly kind, patient, loving, and quick to laugh. I feel profoundly lucky to have known him. He helped guide me in many ways and I will hold him in my heart forever.

  5. A loving man, a stand out psychologist, and a fine friend. He will be missed, his memory, a blessing.
