About me

Hello, my name is Kathy. I am a licensed clinical social worker with 25 years of counseling experience. If you decide to work with me, my goals will be to establish a trusting relationship and fully understand your needs, concerns. and aims for counseling. I am skilled at connecting with the strengths in my clients that, with support, allow them to overcome their challenges. I have ample experience working with young, middle-aged, and older adults who struggle with depressed/anxious moods, anger, grief and loss, relationship issues, compassion fatigue or secondary traumatic stress. I am also trained in trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy.

In addition to being a therapist, I am a semi-retired social work professor. I have published 2 books; one is focused on social work practice and the other on self-care for professional counselors. In my spare time, I enjoy yoga, swimming, and playing with my dogs. I am widowed and have 3 adult children.

I look forward to working with you and participating in your healing and growth!

I’ve tried therapy multiple times without success, but after just a few sessions with Dr. Cox I’m already feeling some relief. She listens and gives me real tools that have helped daily. I would absolutely recommend her to a friend (and already have!)

Work with me!
