I am a LCSW from Tennessee with forty seven years of experience in providing therapy to a wide range of clients . These patients have suffered from depression, anxiety, insomnia, PTSD, LGBT issues, and trauma as well as numerous other issues. If you chose to speak to me , you will find it a judgement free zone regardless of the situation. I consider myself almost" shock free" so don't hesitate to be as open as you feel comfortable. I am here to provide different perspectives and help you determine your next steps.
Like most therapists, I use a mixture of therapy approaches but lean toward rational emotive therapy in general.
I look forward to speaking with you. You have already completed the hardest step---you are seeking help.

Joe is first rate and it's nice to talk with someone who understands issues that us over-60 types face.

Joe lends a compassionate ear without judgement, and has a natural way of communicating with clients that sets me at ease. I can tell him anything and even dropped a couple pretty big situational bombs within our sessions just when things in other areas seemed to be coming together and he took it all in stride. If you need a good sounding board in a judgement free zone, Joe’s compassionate demeanor could be a great fit.

My experience with Dr Cooper so far has been amazing. He is always there for me and is always willing to probe all my thoughts and does not hold back asking hard questions. He is exactly the kind of therapist I have been looking for and I couldn't be happier.
