EMILY COOPER, LSWAIC
I work with people who are tired of determining their worth by how much they weigh or what they eat that day. I aim to help you rediscover your worth, raise your self-esteem, gain confidence, and create a life worth living.
You may be struggling with an eating disorder, negative body image, chronic dieting, anxiety, social anxiety, depression, relationship concerns... or all of the above!
There are many types of therapy that can help, but one of the biggest factors in whether or not you find therapy helpful is the relationship you have with your therapist. It's important that you feel comfortable and able to trust them. I think it's impossible for therapists not to bring their personalities into therapy. My personality frequently shows up through humor, warmth, validation, education, and empowerment.
THERAPY MODALITIES I WORK FROM INCLUDE:
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
Health At Every Size
LICENSE AND EDUCATION
LICENSED SOCIAL WORKER ASSOCIATE & INDEPENDENT CLINICAL (LSWAIC)
License number: SC60848910
MASTER OF SOCIAL WORK, NEW YORK UNIVERSITY
I often incorporate conversations surrounding oppression and privilege into sessions. If we aren't acknowledging the societal effects of racism, sexism, classism, ableism, ageism, and sizeism on our lives, we're leaving out a huge piece of the equation.
BACHELOR OF PSYCHOLOGY, BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY
I have a strong interest in research and evidence-based treatments. I am also familiar with Mormon culture and happy to talk about these subjects if it's something you'd like to incorporate into your treatment.
