Dr. Richard Cox

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 has a great way of simplifying the problems I am dealing with that seem so overbearing. He reframes issues I have in a new light that really helps me understand things in a more healthy perspective.

Dr. Cox is very understanding and has been exactly what I needed during this tough time. He has a great ability to provide counsel on anxiety and relationships. When his schedule changed he made me aware, way in advance so I could adjust before the change occurred. Overall would recommend him!

Professional, attentive, and patient. Dr. Cox was very sweet and helped me work though some stuff rather quickly, giving me the tools I needed to acquire and then the space to figure things out at my own pace. Very grateful. Thank you !

Written by D.A. on May 14, 2021 after therapy with Richard for 3 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and family conflicts

Dr. Cox helped me work through childhood traumas related to my family that were still affecting me as well as helping me work through other things I was going through now with a recent divorce. He listens very well and always wanted to be sure that I was doing alright. I could share anything with him. He also taught me ways to work through difficult thoughts and emotions and it has helped me immensely.

Dr. Cox is wonderful at listening.
He is very polite and careful to avoid triggering words.
I always want to jump into something with my arms swinging so I'm grateful that he is taking his time listening and ensuring the best plan for my healing.
I'm picky about therapist and he has met all of my requirements.
I feel very comfortable in his knowledge and ability to help walk me through trauma and healing in a safe environment.
I'm not a easy client to take on yet my quirks that caused issues with other therapist don't seem to phase Dr.Cox.

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.

Written by C.I. on Feb 24, 2021 after therapy with Richard for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, and adhd

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!
