My name is Delissa Cooper and I am a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker (LSCSW) in Kansas and Missouri.
I believe in the empowerment and recovery of all individuals. I utilize a positive person-centered therapeutic approach to meet my clients where they are, build rapport and help them identify goals to improve their quality of life.
With an emphasis on supporting clients with healing from past trauma. I believe it is important to shift our mindset from, "what's wrong with me...to what happened to me". By making this shift, we can understand the impacts of how our experiences shape our thoughts, feelings and actions. As well as Who we are, What we think about ourselves and our relationships with others at home, work or in the community.
As a graduate of KU. I have been practicing as a Social Worker for over ten years. I have experience with working with a variety of diverse populations in multiple settings. Currently only serving adults ages 18 and above, via tele-health. I am trained in CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), SFBT (Solution Focused Brief Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) and IFS "parts work" (Internal Family Systems) , which are therapy modalities used to assist you with the healing process.
