Scott Gibbs is a licensed psychotherapist and professional executive coach in private practice in San Francisco, CA.  He is an authority on the psychological and emotional underpinnings of conflict and the restoration of relational harmony.  

As a psychotherapist, Scott has extensive experience as a couple’s therapist and is trained in both Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and The Gottman Method.  He also has specialized training in personality disorders, a difficult to treat, rigid, and maladaptive way of thinking and behaving that so often creates challenging, repetitive conflict in relationships.

Scott also has a distinct advantage and perspective as an executive coach.  Having ended a successful twenty-year career in business and finance in order to pursue a career in counseling and coaching, he is uniquely able to assist executives and managers cultivate the development of leadership skills and in particular, so-called “soft skills”, such as emotional intelligence, therapeutic communication, assertiveness, conflict resolution, etc.  

In addition to his private practice, Scott is also engaged academically in the field of existentialism.  He is an avid reader of works of existential psychology, philosophy, and theology and has researched, written, and/or reviewed several published works at the intersection of existential-humanistic psychology and conflict, including “Islam and Islamic Extremism:  An Existential Analysis” published in the Journal of Humanistic Psychology.

Scott holds an MA in Clinical Psychology, an MBA from Northwestern University, and an AB in History from Princeton University.  He lives with his wife and two children in Marin County, CA.
