Positive Actions International takes an action-oriented, step-by-step approach to helping individuals reach their goals. They develop a plan and timeline with an achievable end in sight, motivating clients to invest in themselves and reach their goals.
Working with people around the world has afforded Esther a unique perspective on the core issues impacting human emotions, offering them a unique ability to provide effective treatment solutions to complicated problems.
A typical course of treatment at Positive Actions International takes clients through four phases: 1) Intake and evaluation; building a relationship that provides hope. 2) Discovery and planning; focusing on the emotional, relational and spiritual areas of the client’s life, their thoughts about the problem and what concrete steps can be taken to improve their situation. 3) Training and building; developing the skills needed to better manage their situation. 4) Reflection and reinforcement; understanding how they have positively changed, emphasizing the new skills they have gained to help them live a more meaningful, well balanced life.
Meet Esther Scott

Her guiding principle is, “We can do all things…;” She works to help clients discover their strengths and resourcefulness, and determine the specific POSITIVE ACTIONS they can take to achieve their goals and fulfill their God-given purpose.
Esther has dedicated her career to helping others achieve personal growth, serving individuals and families in Italy, Greece, Bahrain, Japan, and the Dominican Republic. As a military spouse she has a passion for our nation’s veterans and first responders, noting how difficult it is for those groups to overcome their reluctance to seek treatment for the issues that often accompany those lines of work. She works to spread the word about the benefits of mental health treatment to improve overall health and advocates for regular well-visit check-ups, every six to 12 months.
Esther earned a double Bachelor of Arts degrees in Psychology and Business Administration and a Master of Science degree in Mental Health.

Esther volunteers her time as a board member on Arlington Kindness Initiative Commission, a women’s mentor and volunteer interpreter with Christ Chapel Bible Church, president of Dominican Cultural Society Dallas-Fort Worth, and a Traumatic Incident Responder at local schools. “Counseling can be truly eye-opening for those who’ve been unhappy, but never realized they can take Positive Actions to overcome their condition and reclaim their happiness,” she said.
