Who We Are

TeenSportsRadio hosts teens and community members and engages in dialogues on sometimes difficult topics such as teen suicide, gender relations, transgender inclusion in sports, immigration and homelessness. We celebrate teen’s accomplishments as individuals and teams and provide opportunity for teens to talk to teens, encouraging greater participation in sports, art, music and other youth activities. We invite teens to be co-hosts for the show, bringing in classmates and community members to interview. Many of our teen co-hosts have continued their broadcasting activities in college.

Terri Cooper, M.A.,LMFT “Dr. Energy” born and raised in Brooklyn, New York Terri dreamed of leaving the gritty city streets and living in a place where the beauty of nature surrounded her. She wanted to travel, to make people laugh, and to guide people on the path to self-empowerment and emotional well-being.

In l958 Terri moved to Los Angeles where she grew up eventually getting her A.A. in Literature, her B.A. in Psychology and her M.A. in Clinical Psychology in l981. Always raised to honor her natural intuitive abilities, Terri found that by integrating her strong sense of empathy and higher consciousness into her therapy practice, she could bring a level of deep insight and rapid, positive change to her clients.

Terri did get to realize her dream of travel and in l969 lived for a year in England. In l994 Terri’s world came crashing down as her home was destroyed in the l994 Northridge earthquake But out of this tragedy came a wonderful opportunity to move to Santa Barbara and start a happy new life here.

Terri loves sharing the insight and wisdom she has gathered over her years of practice and she does this by teaching courses in both psychology and metaphysics at the Center for Lifelong Learning. As well as being a popular speaker for organizations and groups, Terri is also a published author and poetess, a stand-up comedienne, and volunteers as an advocate for ESL speakers needing assistance in settling legal disputes. Terri is also a Marriage Officiant! (They don’t call her “Doctor Energy” for nothing!)

Terri is truly delighted to be part of the Teen Sports Radio program and excited to share her self-empowering energy tools with her listeners.
