Sara Cooley

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in both Colorado and Texas with over 5 years of experience working as a psychotherapist for adults, adolescents, and groups. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and processing through past trauma and abuse. I am additionally interested in helping clients address issues of spirituality and meaning.

My counseling style is person-centered. I believe everyone is the expert of their own lives and experiences, and my role as counselor is to help guide clients toward change they want for themselves. I value nonjudmentalness, openness, and authenticity in counseling sessions. My background primarily includes cognitive behavioral therapies, including acceptance and commitment therapy and dialectical behavior therapy. I am also a certified EMDR therapist. Ultimately, I believe it is important to structure counseling sessions around your unique needs and goals.

I look forward to meeting with you!

Sara’s awesome! I felt comfortable with her right away, and she’s made sure of it all the way through. As much as I feel my responses are all over the place, she’s amazing at keeping my thoughts on track. She’s really opened my eyes to the fact that these resources work.

Sara makes me feel listened too without judgement. She has the right words to say when I truly need them the most. In the short time I have known Sara she has brought me so much comfort, she is truly remarkable.
