About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor based in the St. Louis, Missouri area. My experience is varied across clients and settings. I have worked with children as young as three years old and clients who are well into their golden years. Presenting issues have also varied and include substance use, trauma, sex-trafficking, gender identity, self-harm, relationships, depression, anxiety, guilt/shame, and grief. Some of my experience has been in private practice and some in residential settings.

I am very aware and respectful of cross-cultural factors and the unique types of trauma that people experience. The approach I take with clients will vary, depending on the need of the client. I am trained in EMDR, certified in DBT and TF-CBT, and use other modalities, such as SFBT and CBT. It is important to me that each individual be provided with the approach that best suits his/her/their needs.

Together, we will determine a plan that is just right for you.
It takes a lot of strength and courage to take the first step toward empowerment, fulfillment, happiness, or whatever it is you’re looking for that will create a life worth living. Congratulations on taking that step by being here! I am ready and willing to walk that path with you, support you, and empower you on that journey, and I can’t wait to cheer you on and watch you thrive.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Cathy Looper. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Cathy is professional and personable. As someone who avoided therapy for much of my life, I found her sense of humor and humility to be relaxing. She listens, relates, and doesn’t make you feel guilt for how you feel or how you see a situation. She does give an honest portrait of your situation and gives you tools to help you address and move beyond your challenges. That was big for me. I wanted action steps and she delivered with simple things to start and then we built upon that foundation. I couldn’t encourage meeting with her more and my wife and I hope to start couples sessions with her soon.
