Professional statement

Marian Cooper is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Houston, Texas who works with busy professionals dealing with with the ups, downs, and uncertainties connected to life. This often includes managing relationship difficulties, self criticism, anxiety, and dissatisfaction at work. Many of her clients struggle with pleasing others and often sacrifice their own happiness for the needs of those around them. Marian helps her clients to start living life to their full potential. In sessions, Marian works with clients to identify, challenge, reframe, and replace unhelpful thought patterns and assist them in learning to live life on their own terms without guilt.

Marian’s approach is integrated and combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with creative arts. Marian offers clients a safe space that allows them to use their creativity and reflect without judgement. Marian works to help clients understand their physical response to external stressors, and begin to problem-solve ways to introduce meaningful change and support continuous growth.

Marian is focused on ensuring that her clients see real progress: her style is interactive, non-judgmental, and positions clients as the experts on where they are now, and where they want to go. Marian is sensitive to the influence of past experiences on present challenges, and works closely with clients to reframe the narrative of their life in a way that increases self-confidence and compassion.

Marian’s first priority in starting with a new client is ensuring that they feel safe, heard, and like an equal partner in the therapeutic process. As a seasoned Telehealth provider, she offers the convenience of remote sessions to help make therapy a core component of your self-care calendar. If you are curious about therapy, come check out her integrative approaches. Marian brings creativity into helping professionals balance life.
