Professional statement

Peggy Cook is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Chantilly, VA. Peggy enjoys working with clients across a wide range of situations, issues, and mental health concerns. Peggy generally works with clients whose depression or anxiety holds them back from living healthy, fulfilling lives. Her clients begin therapy because their coping behaviors or self-medication have gotten out of hand, including binge eating, mindless eating, addiction, unhealthy relationships, or substance abuse. Peggy helps clients who need someone to support them as they process through their emotions and take steps towards better mental health.



Peggy’s style is warm and person-centered. This means that she lets the client be the main focus of each session, encouraging them to direct where the conversation goes. She offers positive support as clients take a look at how they’ve been living and identify what isn’t making them happy anymore. She uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help clients learn more about how their thought patterns impact their feelings and behaviors. Clients learn how to better cope with feelings of distress, overwhelming sadness, or panic. She asks clients to observe their motivations behind the decisions they make - or avoid making - and helps them find their innate strength to make healthy changes in lifestyle.



Peggy has over 25 years of experience working in the mental health setting. She’s helped countless numbers of people with their mental health, and is passionate about working with clients of diverse backgrounds and identities. She is a very interactive therapist who likes to collaborate with her clients inside their sessions, engaging them in productive conversations about how to reach their mental health goals.
