My name is Linda Cooke and I am a licensed clinical social worker with licenses in Kentucky and Georgia. I have been in practice since 1998 when I graduated from The University of Louisville with a master degree in social work. I studied abroad in Europe while working on my bachelor degree from Spalding University. I have worked in community mental health, three inpatient psychiatric hospitals (including a forensic unit), partial and intensive outpatient care as well as an employee assistance program (EAP). I had a successful private practice in Kentucky for nine years and most recently I have worked with active duty soldiers and dependents.
My approach to therapy is goal oriented and client centered because I believe that clients are the experts of their lives and I work hard to meet them where they are. I utilize multiple psychological treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Crisis Intervention, Mindfulness, Psycho-education, and Solution-Focused Therapy helping clients identify their goals as they gain insight into changes needed for them to live their ‘best lives.’
I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families. I’ve worked with individuals that have experienced significant trauma in their lives as well as depression, anxiety, parenting and relationship issues. My style of counseling is genuine, honest, non-judgmental.
Change is never easy and I applaud you for taking this first step. I would be honored to work with you through this personal journey.
