Phil Scoville, LMFT, is the newest member of an expanded therapy team at Discovery Academy. Scoville is an experienced therapist whose former treatment environments have included wilderness therapy and residential treatment centers.
“One of the specialties I work with is anxiety disorders,” Scoville explains. He says he’s excited about Discovery Academy’s experiential emphasis and the opportunity of working one-on-one with families. “Families here are very invested in the treatment process,” he notes. “They’re eager to accept their role in their child’s therapy.”
He says he enjoys his role in helping to guide the process as families work toward wellness.
Executive Director Brent Hall says the Academy’s growing student enrollment and a commitment to small therapist caseloads gave the school an opportunity to add Scoville. “His background in wilderness and residential therapy, as well as his work in anxiety related issues, is a great addition to our team,” Hall notes.
Born in Alberta, Canada, Phil moved to the United States as a child when his father pursued chiropractic training in Utah. Scoville holds a Bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University and a Master’s degree from Loma Linda University. He’s currently working on his doctoral dissertation at Brigham Young University.
Married with three children, when he’s not working or trying to keep up with his young family Phil enjoys snowboarding, waterskiing and football. He plays the guitar and says he has a passion for music, especially indie-rock.
