Michele Cooper, LCSW

Originally from the East Coast, I moved to Colorado nearly 17 years ago to pursue my education in the field of psychology and social work.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Colorado (License #9923212). I received my BA in psychology from the University of Colorado and my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from the University of Denver.

This is a part of me, but these labels, these letters after my name don’t define me.

I’m a daughter, a sister, a friend, an athlete, a professional, an advocate, an inspirer. Oh and I’m also human.

And being human has allowed me the opportunity to have plenty of my own life experiences, work through my own life struggles, slowly (and painfully at times) learn to accept myself and the things in my life I was resistant to. I’m by no means perfect. I still have my own work to do, I have good days and bad days…but when all is said and done, what I know is this: I’ve learned to accept myself, I truly like the person I call “me” and I choose to really live and show up, each and every day.

I understand the courage it takes to face our unique demons, but I also know that coming out the other side is worth every ounce of pain along the way. I’d never wish to change my past experiences because I’ve learned from them, they’ve made me stronger and most importantly…they’ve made me, ME!

Elevate Counseling and Community Center

In 2018, I co-founded Elevate Counseling and Community Center. At Elevate Counseling and Community Center, we offer a variety of health services, including multiple modalities of therapy for individuals (children through elderly), couples, families and groups. We have multiple mental health providers with unique specialties to meet your unique needs. In addition we have 3 dietitians in our office, who all work through a Health at Every Size lens and are well versed in eating disorders, anxiety and depression and how that affects our relationship to food and body. This has been a dream of mine for over a decade and I am proud to call Elevate Counseling and Community Center the home for my practice, CORtherapy. If you want to learn more about the other services offered, check out our website here.
