This week in our Mental Health Matters initiative, we’re getting to know Jessica Cooper from Jessica Cooper Counselling.
Jessica received her Master of Arts in Counselling from Adler University and her undergraduate degree at Simon Fraser University. Jessica provides counselling to clients who have been impacted by trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, life transitions, separation and divorce, cancer and medical concerns, and issues with self-esteem.
Her counselling approach is multi-faceted; she provides approaches to best meet the needs of clients and help bring about the change that they need. Jessica’s foundation is a strong client-centered approach. She is trauma informed and integrates concepts and interventions from the following modalities: Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Adlerian Therapy, Mindfulness Based Approaches, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Flash Technique, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
Jessica believes that counselling can help find hope in any situation, ordinary or extraordinary.
Taking the first step for support can often be the toughest part, but it is also the start of change; she encourages you to give her a call if you would like to discuss counselling further and she is happy to answer any questions you may have.
Jessica regularly participates in professional development opportunities by attending trainings, conferences and participating in ongoing clinical supervision. Jessica is a Registered Clinical Counsellor through the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors. Jessica is registered to provide counselling to clients through the Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP). Some extended health benefit plans will provide some coverage to access counselling through a Registered Clinical Counsellor.
