About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Utah. I have worked with people experiencing depression, anxiety in many forms, struggling to connect with their child/teen, and those trying to find meaning in life. I understand that some people want to look back to early events in their lives to find roots of behaviors, and some people just want practical solutions for today. My promise is that I’ll hear what you want, and won’t impose my ideas on your life. If I feel I’m not a good fit for your situation, I’ll be up front and honest about that. My availability is Mon and Tue nights from 7:30- 9:30 PM Mountain time and Sunday Mornings from 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM Mountain.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Michael Cox. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Michael is a great dude, good listener, and gives quality feedback and advice. He shares tools you can use in your daily life to improve, and feel achievement with that accomplishment.

In the few months I’ve been working with Michael he’s literally changed my life. I can’t recommend him enough.

I cannot say enough about Michael. He is super relatable and just an all round good guy. I think his best quality as a therapist is picking up on every thing that I say. Not only does he pickup on the little things, he remembers them and makes them applicable latter on. He has greatly impacted my life. I am so glad that Better Help made our paths cross. He is a wealth of knowledge and professional in every sense of the word.

I have loved working with Michael! He has been such a resource in taking charge of my life and mental health. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind, respectful, and positive. He always makes sure I am comfortable while also gently pushing me to better myself. I love the way that he takes the time to listen, offers ideas and suggestions, and explains things in a very relevant way. I would recommend therapy with Michael to anyone:)

Michael is a great listener and makes you feel very comfortable to be vulnerable. He makes sure to be available a fair amount of times a month to speak with you as well.
