Scott Coulter

Scott Coulter is a Philadelphia-based therapist and musician. Since being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 15, he has had a strong desire to share the knowledge he’s gained in both his personal and professional lives to help others living with diabetes. In his role as a therapist, Scott has worked with individuals and families struggling to face the challenges that come with a chronic medical condition. And as a musician, Scott has spent a good deal of time on the road, learning to manage his diabetes while living off gas station breakfasts and working until 3 AM every night. Away from work, Scott enjoys spending time with his wife and four cats, catching up on the latest episode of Breaking Bad, and taking time to write.
