Seth L. Scott attended Emmaus from 2000 to 2004, graduating with a wife, Jen, and a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies and Intercultural Studies. Seth completed his semester internship with Jen in Northern Ireland, working with a local assembly to provide discipleship, small group training and growth work, and college ministry at the University of Ulster in Belfast. Seth and Jen moved to Virginia Beach to work at and attend Regent University's School of Psychology and Counseling. Seth graduated from Regent in 2007 with a Master of Arts in Community Counseling with internship training at Virginia Wesleyan College. While at Wesleyan, Seth worked in the College Counseling Center providing individual counseling, prevention awareness, and substance abuse treatment and prevention workshops for the fraternities and sororities in campus. Seth and Jen welcomed Suzanne to the family in the summer of 2007 and soon after moved to Maine. In Maine, Seth worked at Counseling Services, Inc., providing adult and child outpatient therapy and Intensive In-Home Crisis stabilization and support treatment for 3-21 year olds and their families. During the four years at CSI, Seth was able to receive training and certification with Trauma work with children; Modular Approach to Treatment with Children - Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, and Conduct; and complete his certification as a Alcohol and Drug Counselor. In 2009, Caleb was added to the family mix and Seth started couple's co-counseling on the side with Linda Connell at Higher Ground Christian Counseling Ministries. This allowed for application of Seth's certification in Hope-Focused Marital Therapy and Seth took over as Executive Director of Higher Ground in the fall of 2011. Soon after starting full-time at Higher Ground CCM, Seth and Jen prayerfully applied for a counseling faculty position at Emmaus and were accepted in the spring of 2012, which has allowed Seth to apply counseling experience with his love and great enjoyment of teaching and training.
