Hello, my name is Douglas and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas. In addition to being an LPC I am certified to supervise (LPC-S) Licensed Professional Counselor Interns. I am also a member of the National Honor Society in Psychology and I have over 24 years experience working with individuals, couples and groups.
I believe in the power of the individual ~ in the individual’s creativity, courage, choice, free will, and desire to become better. I believe people make choices about themselves, others and the world, and set goals for their lives based on their perceptions of reality. Sometimes these perceptions are distorted and discouraging. Counseling aids individuals in discovering and recognizing their distorted views, in developing more effective ways to reach their goals, and in decreasing their discouragement.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution based and emotional interviewing therapies. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
The therapy process is a cooperative effort between the individual and the counselor where each assumes an active and responsible role in that process. I will contribute my knowledge and expertise to assist you in gaining insight and making educated choices, I will provide you with experiences in which to test those choices, and I will support you with encouragement, patience, and optimism. You will contribute your personal knowledge, your commitment to explore yourself and your beliefs honestly.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile! I look forward to talking with you and assisting you in achieving your goals.

LPC #13335 (Expires: 2022-11-30)
Douglas Cope really helped me with my personal issues. He really listened to what I had to say, and provided examples to better myself. I was in a dark place, but Douglas really helped bring light into my life.
I really enjoy my sessions with Douglas. Sometimes when he ask me a question the way he asks makes me understand my answer more(idk if that makes sense) lol. I really look forward to the assignments that’s given at the end of each session. The assignments really gets me more in tune with myself and how I respond to situations and those around me. This chapter in my life is called REbirth and I’m glad to have Douglas on this journey.
He's been amazing in helping me through my past trauma. I'm able to see who I am, not who I was. I feel safe and talk about the hard things I tried to forget.
Douglas Cope has a great understanding of my particular set of needs and circumstances and offers reasonable advice. He genuinely cares and engages in conversation not just asking open ended questions. I highly recommend him for REAL practical support.
Doug has helped me realize so much. My relationships with family and friends have improved and I have a better understanding of my problems thanks to him. I didn't even know the terms to use to describe what I was going through before I started therapy. I would highly recommend.
I’ve only had 2 live sessions with Doug, however I would recommend him to anyone!! He’s helped me so much already and he listens but gives amazing feedback, so happy I have Doug to help me, he’s great!
I’ve been in therapy for years and have learned more from working with Doug in a few months than in all those years combined. He’s compassionate, patient, responsive and does the work because he loves helping people. I’ve been able to manage my anxiety and depression in a whole new way since he began treating me. I’ll be forever grateful for the tools he’s shown me and the way he’s helping me manage life’s greatest challenges.
I have learned so much about myself and my capabilities. I really appreciate the time and support I consistently get. Thank you so very much.
Douglas helped me so much to deal with my low self esteem, that now I can say I feel happier than ever before in my life.
He straight away realised what my issues are and gave me the attention that I needed and the steps to work with my emotions. At the beginning I could not even believe how much my view of life has changed after a few short conversations we had.
I will always be grateful to Doug, for all the tools I now have to cope with my feelings.
I cannot say enough about how much my life has changed since I started counseling with Douglas.
I have only had two counselling sessions with Douglas but I find him to be very empathetic , knowledgeable and professional. He helps to provide valuable insight and different perspectives on specific problems. His approach has helped me to utilise different views and approaches on managing human conflict.
