Adina Arden Cooper

I love people’s stories.

They usually come to me all wadded up like a tangled mass of yarn. I enjoy helping people tease out the strands so they can make sense of their story, make sense of themselves and of life. It’s not an easy process, but it is incredibly beautiful and undeniably liberating.

I’m Adina Arden Cooper, Counselor, Coach, artist, writer, mother, healer, spiritual seeker, explorer of mind and mystery…

I’ve been helping people professionally for over twenty years. 

My journey of self-actualization began early in childhood. I’ve been discovering how to wield the superpower of sensitivity my entire life. Though it took me a while to realize it, I’ve always been on a path of compassion. I’m here to serve.

I grew up in Western New York but have lived in Asheville, North Carolina since 1999.

I appreciate how threads of my story relate to the stories of my clients, which also interlace with each other. There is a magical interconnectedness that weaves us all together. I’m amazed by the resilience of the human spirit and the capacity for struggle to transform into strength.

No matter what your story, you can still create the happy ending you deserve.

It’s my sincere honor to support the process.

“Stories are like spiderwebs, which man gets himself all tangled up in but which look pretty when you see them under a leaf in the morning dew, and in the elegant way that they connect to one another, each to each.”

~Neil Gaiman
