Peggy Cook, LPC, LSATP

Hello, my name is Peggy Cook and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have over 25 years of experience working in the mental health field. My passion is helping people who struggle with self-worth and identity issues. This often manifests itself as depression, anxiety, stress, feeling alone, or feeling like you never measure up. It can impact mood, emotions and behaviors.

I often work with young adults who have difficulty transitioning into adult life and meeting its challenge, especially those within the LGBTQ community. I also specialize in women’s issues, including as it relates to trauma, parenting, separation and divorce, death, and empty nesting.

I utilize a commonsense approach based on person centered therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. I sometimes offer reading and homework to help translate insights from therapy sessions into real world results. I help you identify and challenge your negative self-talk while offering new perspectives. I focus on strengths and incorporate spirituality and a Christian perspective for those individuals who identify this as helpful.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is a partnership where we work together to identify thoughts and relational patterns that are keeping you from reaching your goals and enjoying your life.  I provide a safe space for you to be yourself and share. Together we will identify new skills and strategies to help you reach your goals.

Peggy conducts her sessions via telehealth.
