He specializes in working with couples, trauma, sexual dysfunctions, gender & sexual identity, depression & anxiety, bipolar disorder, personality issues, grief, and other mental health problems.

In his ICEEFT certification letter, Alison said, “You are SO attuned and validating! I liked how you intervened when the therapist stepped out of the Tango and loved how you ‘felt in’ to her client’s experience using attachment and what you knew of the couples’ cycle. Great role plays in both videos – I like how you processed them and also the learning moments that came from them. Your relationship with both therapists was delightful – collaborative – fun – gentle – respectful – skilled – are the words that came to my mind. And your own ability as an EFT therapist is very apparent as you work.”

We are so lucky to have you in our LACEFT community! To congratulate Dr. Cooper personally, reach out at dryamontecooper.com.

Praise for Dr. Cooper:

“You are SO attuned and validating! I liked how you intervened when the therapist stepped out of the Tango and loved how you ‘felt in’ to her client’s experience using attachment and what you knew of the couple cycle etc. and – to use your own words ‘went out on a limb’ with him. I find this a very helpful way of helping the therapist to ‘see’ her clients through the attachment lens.

Great role plays in both videos – I like how you processed them and also the learning moments that came from them. Your relationship with both therapists was delightful – collaborative – fun – gentle – respectful – skilled – are the words that came to my mind. And your own ability as an EFT therapist is very apparent as you work.”
