No one in life is perfect, including me! Being able to identify, relate and empathize with you as my patient is probably one of my greatest strengths. The special relationship formed between you and I, ensuring trust, confidence, and ability to truly work through the issues are of utmost importance. I believe everyone has something to work through in their lives. By providing evidence based therapy and unconditional positive regard, I have been very effective in my treatment history. I will always begin where you feel you need to go in therapy and allow you to guide me in your struggles, what you need most and what you desire to gain from therapy. This is a two way relationship and feedback throughout the therapeutic process will only enhance the therapeutic relationship towards your goals. I wish for you to find the inner peace and strength that I know everyone has within them and to be able to achieve and live the life that makes you feel truly alive!

Yumi makes me feel understood and gives me wonderful advice. I feel a lot better when I talk to her.
She is awesome
Yumi is a great counselor and helped me get over all my problems. She's very professional and helpful. I would highly recommend her for anyone who needs help.
Yumi has helped me grow in more ways than I can express. In addition to addressing my concerns and what I view to be my biggest challenges, she helps me understand, identify, and work through the underlying issues which cause the things I view to be my biggest challenges. She helps me with self-reflection and identification, and I could not recommend her more highly.
She always gets back to me in a timely manner.
I am so happy I finally reached out for help. I was matched with Yumi within just a few hours. With work and home responsibilities, I wasn’t able to contact her for a few days. She checked in and that message alone really helped get me through my week. Knowing someone cared. I highly recommend her. She helped me deal with a manipulative, gaslighting boyfriend who put me down all the time. She helped me understand him and myself. It only took a few days for me to gain clarity and feel lighter. I’m finally smiling and able to be grateful and positive. It is so easy now and I’ve attracted wonderful things as a result. My mental health and life has greatly improved (in just two weeks!) and I can’t thank her enough. I know I’m going to be okay. I feel like I have my sanity back. I can’t thank her enough.
Yumi is very tentative, reaches out to see how your doing, gives great recommendations and feel our sessions has help me feel more at was about talking about my personal issues . Highly recommend.
I have been here a few weeks now and I already feel a bit better. I do have along way to go but Yumi is so good at what she does. She has been pretty spot on with everything. Thank you Yumi for everything so far..
Yumi Couper has been great and very understanding. She is willing to work with my schedule and work within my comfort zone. In a very short period of time, I have felt comfortable opening up about things I have never told anyone before, even in multiple years of therapy in the past. She is very kind and patient and I have never once felt judged for anything I have talked about. I truly appreciate her professionalism and insight.

It has only been a few days and I feel better. She is great at listening to me, getting me to open up and it makes my day go better knowing that I'll get a message from her.

Yumi is very intuitive and really understands what it is I'm trying to convey in our sessions. She is incredibly compassionate, relatable, and really truly wants to help.

I highly recommend Yumi to absolutely everyone.

Working with Yumi Couper has been great! She gets right down to the core of issues and helped tackle them with as much care and consideration any person struggling with self hate and anxiety issues would need.

Ms. Cooper is highly knowledgeable and understands my concerns (including concerns I was not aware of until she discerned them).
In the first few sessions Yumi was able to pull from me things that have been buried for years. She’s timely with responses, sensitive and also straight forward. She’s truly given me a new lease. Highly recommend!
Yumi is amazing. Always responds timely. If I have questions or concerns she takes the time to make sure I understand. Even through bad days or weeks, I know if I need her she will answer. It's good knowing someone is there to listen.
Yumi is an incredible support. She promptly responds when I reach out to her and has a gentle but honest way of walking me through the issues that I've come to her with. Yumi has also given me tools to use in between our meeting days and checks in just to follow up on my progress. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone.
Yumi is amazing! She is able to work around your schedule to provide the best care possible. I've found that her wide range of credentials has helped me in many different areas of my life. I would highly recommend Yumi!
