Dr. Jennifer Cooper Ph.D.
After graduating from Western Oregon University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology (minor in health), I attended Pacific University School of Professional Psychology completing both my masters and doctoral degrees. My thesis and doctoral dissertation were on pro-anorexia groups online. I completed my internship at North Iowa Consortium Psychology Internship Program; while there I had a 6-month rotation at a rehabilitation unit with a focus on neuropsychological screening of patients and a 6-month rotation at a community mental health center focusing on assessment and psychotherapy of all ages. I also co-facilitated a parent-training group based on Russell Barkley’s Defiant Children and a treatment group for sexual offenders currently under supervision. Following completion of my doctoral degree, I moved to Hermiston to begin a residency. After I was licensed, I stayed in Hermiston and opened a private practice.
I enjoy working with a wide variety of age groups, including children, adolescents, and adults. I work with couples and families to help facilitated healthy relationships. I have completed the Adoptive & Foster Family Therapy Certificate Program at Portland State University and tend to work from an eclectic therapeutic perspective, utilizing a mix of therapy techniques from cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, dialectical behavioral, rational emotive behavioral, and other approaches.
