Therapist in Lansing, Michigan, Michael Cooper, LMSW

Michael Cooper, LMSW

David Cooper LMSW, has been in the field of behavioral health for 20 years. He is a fully licensed Master level mental health therapist. Dave’s primary focus early in treatment is focused on trust development, and understanding of what the client would like to gain from the therapeutic experience. In doing so, Dave primarily utilizes a cognitive behavioral therapy approach, combined with other clinical models including strength based and solution focused interventions. The aim with these clinical models is to allow for effective change in a client’s life through such things as psychoeducation, affect modulation, and cognitive coping strategies. Dave is currently focused on work with clients between 17 and 65 years of age. Current clinical focus encompasses anxiety, depression, mood stability, life changes and general environmental stress. He is currently working via telehealth, which is very convenient for scheduling purposes, and will open in-person sessions in coming months.
Dave’s background within mental and behavioral health has provided a depth and breadth of experience that allows for sound clinical intervention in diverse areas. Dave’s direct professional experience over the past 20 years is as follows: Foster care therapists and case manager; Certified trauma therapist; Mental health liaison for the State of Michigan and Community Mental Health; Program and Clinic Manager for Community Mental Health; Director of Clinical Services for St Vincent Catholic Charities; and 17 years of outpatient work overlapping the above.
