Reverend Dr. Nicholas Cooper-Lewter holds a Master of Social Work degree and a Ph.D. in Psychology.  He has studied at the Ecumenical Center for Black Church Studies in Claremont, California under Henry H. Mitchell, Th.D. and is a supervising Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Marriage and Family Therapist.  Not only is he a grandmaster and teacher of martial arts, but Dr. Cooper-Lewter personally developed an Asian-African American Martial Art style of Kung Fu.


Throughout his four-decade plus career as a licensed psychotherapist, life coach, mental trainer, optimum performance professional and sports psychology expert, Dr. Cooper-Lewter has served as a senior pastor, tenured full professor, visiting full professor, distinguished lecturer, chaplain resource (mentor), workshop facilitator, and a motivational speaker. He served as a commissioner on the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference, Inc. Katrina National Justice Commission and as a consultant; he has worked with universities, seminaries, churches, agencies, foundations, and institutes around the world. Dr. Cooper-Lewter is called the “Inmate Whisperer” by Capital Trial Attorneys because of his ability to facilitate inmates sharing difficult psychosocial histories. In 2012, he was chosen to be on the cover of the Carolinian magazine, which was the inaugural issue of the University of South Carolina’s “No Limits” branding effort. The Carolinian’s featured story gave him a new nickname: the “Soul Whisperer.”


“God has blessed [him] with the keys that will lead millions to healing and success”

He “coaches hearts to empower minds” to embrace their God-given potential. His clients and many former students agree that “when the unspoken must be spoken & the unknown must be known,” Rev. Dr. Cooper-Lewter is the one to trust. He conducts therapist trainings, he works with athletes at all levels and in all sports to overcome the odds to optimize personal achievement on and off the field, and he assists in the development of Rites of Passage programs for youth.  Honoring his African, Native American and European ancestry Dr. Cooper-Lewter recommends recapturing the ancient healing folk/spiritual values and practices of “Soul Therapy.”
