Discover Your Inner Strength

Hello, my name is Kristen Cooper MacDiarmid. I am a licensed professional counselor that works with adolescents and adults. I specialize in anxiety and mood disorders. In this time of turmoil and change, it is more important than ever to take care of our mental health while maintaining our physical health and well being; therefore, I offer flexible early morning and evening telehealth hours several days a week.


I believe in a collaborative approach between therapist, teen, parents, and the family as a whole. I use a person-centered approach while also using CBT and solution focused techniques to find the perfect individualized approach for your unique situation. I believe that everyone has the strength and ability to succeed deep within themselves, even if you can’t see it because of your current situation or mindset. I want to help you find that inner ability, pull from that innate strength, and learn the techniques that will help bring out the best you have within you. We are all survivors and sometimes we just need a reminder and a hand to hold to help us through the dark times.

Kristen Cooper MacDiarmid


I earned my BA in Psychology from St. Mary’s University and my MA in Counseling and Guidance from Texas A&M University-San Antonio. I have worked with children in some form or another since my very first job at the age of 13; first helping my mom in her own daycare during my summers off of school, then later volunteering at my family church in the nursery. I have years of experience in a mental health setting, having worked as both a children’s case manager/skills trainer during my internship and a counselor in training at a day program for adults with severe mental illness.

My free time is spent with my husband, children, and my puppy. We enjoy DIYing, playing board games, swimming, hiking, and planning our next trip. I understand attempting to juggle life's demands and will work with you to ensure that you have the support you need when you need it. I offer a flexible telehealth schedule and convenient evening hours several days a week.
