Greetings!  Counseling is not just a job for me, but my passion, calling, and life’s work. I believe that all things are possible with God and no one is beyond hope, grace, mercy and life-restoring healing.

I have been married for 14 years to my lovely wife Christine and have three incredible children. I have worked in the helping professions in a variety of contexts for the better part of 20 years.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from St. Cloud State University with a bachelor’s degree, majoring in Community Psychology and with an emphasis in Chemical Dependency Counseling. I received a master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University in 2009 and I am currently a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in NY state.

B.S., actively pursuing MSC (Master of science in counseling)

Hi there! My name is Julie Everhart. Counseling is a life-long dream for me, and I am so excited to be part of the team at Journey of Hope. I am humbled and blessed to be a part of what God is doing.

I was born and raised in a Godly, Christian home, accepted the Lord as my Savior as a young child, but completely dedicated my life to Him when I was 16. I graduated from Clarks Summit University with my Bachelor’s in counseling in 2000. Many things have happened in my life since then, and I have learned what it means to live in the power of grace and fall in love with Jesus in a way I never knew before. I started my Master’s in Counseling in 2017 and am currently pursuing my Licensure in New York State. I have two amazing sons who are the joy of my life.

Hello, my name is Matthew Scott. Through this journey over the last 14 years God has had his hand on me with every new opportunity that has come across my path. Little did I know that each turn I took would lead me to this opportunity to combine my love for counseling and love for Christ into one. I am in awe that each step I thought was a door closing was actually God’s hand in my life directing my path.

I have been married to my wife and best friend for 16 years and have 4 awesome spunky kids. I have been involved within the field of working with families and their children for over 14 years.
