About Me

Change is not only possible, it is a law of nature. However, we also must not change just for the sake of change either, but rather deal with what we are facing head on and learn how to live with the pain that those things we cannot change often brings. You are currently in some kind of pain, and instead of succumbing to that pain, let me assist you in working through that pain and transferring that pain into passion, purpose and productivity. This life is yours and nobody else's, and you can learn to live the life you have imagined without fear. Are you ready for a new life? Ready for a life where you are master and captain?

I have over 23 years of clinical and academic experience in the mental health profession working and studying with a diverse clientele ranging from adults, adolescents, children, geriatrics, psychiatrics, addictions, developmental disabilities, music therapy, individual therapy, group therapy, couples therapy, cross cultural populations and anger management. I currently specialize in intimacy related issues.

Please check my availability and schedule a day and time that works best for you. Please know that I only schedule 45 minute sessions and only set appointments at the top of each hour; not times on the half hour. If you send me a message on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, please allow me to respond by Monday. I am humbled that you have taken the steps to begin the journey towards the rest of your life and that I happen to be the one to help you on this journey!!!!

Best,

Dr. Cooper Ph.D., LPC-S, CLC

Written by D.A. on Sep 14, 2021 after counseling with Pete for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, career difficulties, and adhd

Dr. Cooper is friendly and professional.
Straight to the point and will take real one on one time to provide insights and strategy to problems.
He is also compassionate and has a vast knowledge of philosophy, ancient religions, and an arsenal of fine material. I don't know where he keeps it all, he is great! I consider myself very lucky to have him.

Dr Cooper has been great to talk to. He’s been someone who has helped me see the bigger picture, and that’s really helped me collect my thoughts to make the best decisions.

Dr. Cooper is an empathetic, solution oriented counselor that will work with you on which therapeutic approach is best for you. He is extremely knowledgeable and provides great resources during our sessions. He pushes his clients to think critically and mindfully about their lives, and encourages growth during each session. I appreciate how thoughtful he is when he answers questions or guides the conversation toward necessary topics. It is clear that he prioritizes making his clients comfortable during vulnerable moments. I have gained a lot of tools for my" mental health resource tool kit" because of him. A+ dude, doesn't laugh at all when I ramble about dragons and motorcycles.

Dr. Cooper provided really exactly what I needed to improve my self-esteem and recognize my own potential. He helped me with a variety of issues, but most notably he helped me bring my self-confidence to a new level that I can already feel is improving my life.

Just getting started with BetterHelp and Dr. Cooper and I’ll just say, I’m SO thankful for both! BetterHelp has given me a way of keeping a Journal and having some self accountability for keeping up with it because I know someone is going to be looking at it and talking to me about it! Dr. Cooper has been attentive helpful and supportive after every journal entry I make, letting me know he did in fact read it, and then in the 1 video session we have had thus far, has talked to me about almost all the things I’ve brought up in my journals! Very satisfied so far 10/10, 5 stars, can’t wait to continue!

Dr. Cooper has greatly exceeded my expectations for experiences with a therapist. He is very knowledgeable, and working with him has greatly helped me resolve my issues with anxiety. Most significantly, I do not ever feel like he is being judgmental towards my issues, life, or concerns. I highly and enthusiastically recommend him!

He actually listens instead of forcing me to just hear ideas! He tells me what I need to do but understands that it isn't easy for me and I love the fact that he gives scenarios and examples to help me actually understand what I'm supposed to be learning! Very patient and down to earth!
