Dr. Richard Cox

(PhD, LCMHC)

About Me

I am a clinical mental health counselor with a license to practice in the State of Utah. I also have had extensive training in marriage and family therapy, including a Ph.D in marriage and family therapy that was approved by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. My experience includes: (i) Over 20 years of experience working with individuals, families and couples; (ii) Extensive experience working with many clients who suffered from a mood disorder, such as Bipolar Disorder and/or Depression; (iii) Helping individuals deal with their relationship issues, such as divorce, separation, parenting, anger management, domestic violence, and more. In addition to my doctorate, my education also includes an M.A. in mental health counseling.

I believe in people's ability to overcome challenges, including mental health problems, relationship concerns, and emotional difficulties. I also believe that everyone deserves to be treated with respect, dignity, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach to therapy combines humanistic, psychodynamic, attachment theory, and models that focus on relationships. Every individual is unique, and our treatment plan will be designed to help you with your specific situation and needs.

We all have life challenges that may require professional help. The most important element in successfully tackling those challenges is your courageous effort to make changes, and also the supportive relationship between therapist and client. My approach focuses on supporting you in your pursuit of a happier life, and I look forward to meeting you and working with you!

Dr. Cox gave me hope that I can rebuild my life to become what I want it to be. After so much trauma and loss in my life, I have benefited so much from his gentle guidance and perspective.

Thank you so much helping with the battle of my attachment issue of why I feel stuck. I talked and talked during all my therapy and realized I kept answering my own questions of what I really want and the reason why I’m still in a loveless marriage is because it’s just easier then to start the process of separation and divorce. Now that I finally am putting in the work to let go I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you so much for listening and making you like you care!

My first time getting therapy has gone great because of Dr. Cox. He is knowledgeable and has the wisdom that my friends my age can’t provide me.
