Lindsey Cooper, Psy.D.
Psychotherapy with adults
Lindsey is in-network with BCBS PPO. She is also an out-of-network provider, meaning she’ll give you forms to self-file your insurance if your plan covers out of network services.
Does this sound like you?
Feelings can be really powerful. They can make your day great or totally throw it off course, turning an okay day into an awful day. They can cause us to behave in ways that are unprecedented or unhelpful for us. Maybe you’re the type that acts out, showing verbal displays of anger or irritability. Or perhaps you’re the type that pushes people away, turns inwards, and just wants the world to leave you alone. Either way, you’re ready for the good emotions to come around more often and the difficult ones to keep themselves in check.
Can Therapy Help?
Therapy can be scary, because allowing yourself to hope that things can actually get better is scary. But that’s where I come in. I’ll be there to walk with you each step of the way as together we find new coping skills to address the difficulties in your life head on. Before you know it, your may find your glimmer of hope is turning into your everyday reality.
How I can help:
Think of me as your co-pilot, helping you to navigate difficult journeys all while allowing you to stay in control and go at your own pace. What’s most important to me is helping you to reach your goals using an empathic, non-judgmental approach. My style is structured yet flexible to accommodate things happening in day to day life, all while maintaining a big picture perspective to make sure we are headed towards the kind of life you want to live.
My role is to not just listen to you, but HEAR you. To provide validation and to assist in establishing the kind of changes you are wanting to make. I value transparency, humor, and collaborating in working with my clients. I do my best to always make sure we are on the same page. Together we will explore the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are keeping you stuck and make the changes you are wanting to make.
