David Cope is an Independent Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Hancock, NH. His private practice is primarily telehealth with some availability for in person sessions at his home-based office. David works with teenagers to seniors offering individual, couples, group and family counseling. His clients are dealing with a broad range of issues including anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem, life transitions, loss, trauma and relationship problems.
The foundation of David’s approach is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, an evidence-based approach that helps clients learn a new way to relate to thoughts, feelings and behavior patterns, allowing them greater freedom to live the life they want. David has studied many other schools of therapy over his 33 years as a counselor and uses whichever approaches best fit the needs of his clients. His 15 years working with the military community has given him specialized experience in helping clients overcome the debilitating effects of trauma.
David is also a trained mediator and has helped clients resolve seemingly insurmountable conflicts resulting in improved relationships. His mediation background informs his work with couples and families, helping them to improve their communication, conflict resolution skills and emotional connection.
David approaches clients' issues holistically, considering the physical, psychological and existential aspects of their life.
