About me

Welcome to my About Me page, and thank you for embarking on this journey with me. I’m Cheila Hernandez Coopman, a passionate advocate for mental health and well-being, proudly serving as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Perinatal Mental Health professional in the vibrant state of Florida.

With a solid foundation rooted in a Master of Science in psychology and specialized training in marriage and family therapy, I embarked on my professional journey, completing my graduate program in 2015. Since then, I’ve remained steadfastly committed to my mission of providing compassionate and effective therapeutic services to individuals, couples, and families across diverse backgrounds and life stages.

Driven by a genuine passion for helping others navigate life’s challenges and embrace their full potential, I bring a wealth of knowledge, empathy, and expertise to every session. My approach is collaborative, holistic, and tailored to meet the unique needs of each client, empowering them to cultivate meaningful change and live more fulfilling lives.

As we continue this journey together, I am honored to walk alongside you, offering support, guidance, and encouragement every step of the way. Thank you for entrusting me with your story, and I look forward to the opportunity to accompany you on your path towards healing and growth.

Motivated by the profound journey of motherhood, I found myself drawn to supporting fellow parents as they navigate the intricate nuances and transformative shifts that accompany the arrival of a new child. Fueled by a desire to offer comprehensive assistance, I embarked on a journey of professional development, seeking specialized training from esteemed organizations such as Postpartum Support International. Through rigorous coursework and hands-on experience, I deepened my understanding of Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, equipping myself with invaluable insights and evidence-based strategies to better serve the diverse needs of new parents. This ongoing commitment to growth and learning underscores my dedication to providing compassionate and effective support to individuals embarking on the profound adventure of parenthood.

Perinatal mental health disorders have the potential to overshadow the excitement of pregnancy and disrupt the sacred bond between parent and child. Yet, it’s imperative to acknowledge that healing and restoration are within reach. When parents encounter persistent feelings of sadness, irritability, or anxiety following the birth of their child, it may indicate the presence of a perinatal mental health disorder. Such challenges not only affect the individual but also reverberate throughout the family unit, impacting the well-being of the newborn and the dynamics of the entire household. Recognizing and addressing these struggles with compassion and support is pivotal in fostering resilience and promoting the holistic health of both parent and child.

In my role as a therapist, I am not only committed but deeply invested in providing unwavering support and guidance to mothers and fathers embarking on the profound journey of parenthood. With each session, my goal is not just to listen, but to truly hear and understand the unique challenges and joys that come with this transformative experience.

Through a combination of compassionate listening and personalized care, I strive to co-create tailored action plans that empower individuals to navigate the complexities of parenthood with confidence and resilience. Drawing from evidence-based practices and my own personal and professional experiences, I offer practical tools and strategies to help parents overcome obstacles and embrace the full spectrum of emotions that accompany this new chapter in their lives.

Central to my approach is the creation of a safe and nurturing space where parents feel seen, heard, and supported without judgment. Whether it’s celebrating the triumphs, addressing the concerns, or navigating the uncertainties, I am here to walk alongside my clients every step of the way, providing encouragement, validation, and practical guidance.

Ultimately, my aim is to equip parents with the tools and resources they need to not just survive, but thrive in the demanding yet immensely rewarding landscape of parenthood. Together, we can cultivate resilience, deepen connections, and embark on a journey of growth and self-discovery that enriches not only the lives of parents but also those of their children and families as a whole.
