Clay Coppage is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and contracted general therapist for Strive Counseling Services in Birmingham, AL. He received his Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Alabama. He has practiced social work with the UAB Civitan-Sparks Clinics and UAB Early Head Start Program since 2017. He previously worked with Catholic Family Services and has met regularly with couples to conduct marital counseling since 2019.
Clay worked as an account executive in one of Birmingham’s largest advertising agencies prior to seeking his social work degree in 2015. However, he most enjoyed spending his time offering free tutoring services, mentoring youth through the Birmingham City School System and performing outreach through the Woodlawn Dream Center. It became evident that this passion could translate into a meaningful career so he changed his trajectory to pursue social work.
During down time, Clay enjoys spending time with his wife, Meagan, reading inspirational/self-improvement books, exercising, and taking his four dogs (Gizmo, Kirby, Nelson and Hootie) to the park. Clay also sits on the Impact Family Counseling Jr. board along with serving on the Second Shift board of directors.
