Hope Coleman, LMSW
Hope Coleman earned her Master’s degree in Social Work from Louisiana State University and her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Southern University A&M College. She is currently under supervision to receive her Clinical License in Social Work.
Hope has ten years of experience in the mental health field and is trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address issues of anxiety, depression, and trauma. While working at the Children’s Advocacy Center, Hope became trained in providing Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma and their parents and caregivers.
As a Social Worker, I believe in taking a holistic approach to therapy which involves examining all social factors of a person’s life rather than focusing on one issue. My primary goal is to help individuals receive the care and resources they need to live healthy, comfortable lives.
Specific techniques and approaches I use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, and Mindfulness practices. Working with children and parents/caregivers of trauma, I utilize Trauma-Focused CBT while incorporating play therapy and sand therapy.

I am a competitive powerlifter and author. I love to read. My favorite author is Malcolm Gladwell and I love criminal investigative podcasts. I am currently listening to Dr. Death and Serial. It’s like the ID Channel for my ears!
