As a therapist, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ) which, in a nutshell, involves looking at the way we think and perceive the world around us, examining where that worldview came from and rewriting or changing negative beliefs about that world and ourselves which can lead to our issues.
Do you feel like you need to reach out for help? Do you feel that you've exhausted your personal resources regarding your issues and feel there is nowhere you can turn? Have you considered therapy? Therapy is a confidential process where you can feel safe to talk about the challenges of life and what it is that is bothering you or causing you to need help. Breaking that barrier of admitting one needs help is a very important part of the treatment process.

I believe in the uniqueness of each human being and that all people have inherent strengths. I know when a person seeks counseling it is because he/she is feeling overwhelmed or stuck. In the safety of a professional helping relationship you will address those areas as well as recognize and utilize your own strengths so you can move forward to resolve your problems. I work with people on a variety of difficult life issues and I meet each person where they are at. In addition to helping individual adults, I work with parents, families and children ages 5-18.

I am also trained in other forms of therapy, such as motivational interviewing, CBT , and many more.
My name is Jackson Cooper. I've been working as a therapist for 23 years. There's no job quite like this one, and I'm as fascinated and curious about people and their wonderful mix of strangeness and similarity as when I started this career. We live in uncertain, stressful times. Many of us had difficult and challenging lives before Covid19. There are very few of us who have been unaffected by it's dark reach. It keeps us distant from each other, adding to our distrust and anxiety. IS it any wonder, with the sadness and loneliness that has spilled out around us, that we need each other more than ever ?

My professional training is in the following evidence-based/informed modalities: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Theraplay, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Parent-Child Psychotherapy, Yoga and body-based treatment strategies, Gestalt Theory, Internal Family Systems and Positive Psychology.
There are many paths to healing. My role as a therapist is to determine the approach that will work best for each client and to create the space for healing to occur. I understand the importance of balancing and integrating the emotional self, the thinking self and the physical self and have tools to intervene in each of these dimensions. I believe that for many, a root cause of suffering lies within the context of intimate relationships and that healing primary relationships can create healing within the self.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
