Hello! My name is Sherry Cooper and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and post doctoral clinical psychology fellow in the Tampa Bay area.
I provide therapy services to individuals (age 15+), couples, and families who are looking for change in their lives. I am a trauma informed therapist. I understand the impact trauma can have on relationships, self-esteem, brain development and growth. Helping you to understand the impact of trauma is important.
I find great pleasure in helping couples to develop the best partnership that they can imagine. I understand that relationships come in all types and sizes. I work with alternative as well as traditional relationships.
Most of my experience has been working with families, women and teens who have experienced trauma and couples who have come to a crossroads in their relationships.
I take an eclectic approach to therapy. I choose the therapeutic approach that I feel best fits my client. However, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing are my primary approaches to treatment. After over fifteen years of experience in the mental health field I have learned multiple evidenced based techniques that have been beneficial to my clients. I'd love to be able to help you meet your personal goals.
Currently I am taking new clients to include adults, teenagers, couples, and families for teletherapy only.
