Treatment approach

D

r. Cox uses an Eclectic Approach in psychotherapy. This means that she selects the technique she believes is most appropriate from a variety of treatment approaches she has learned, tailoring her strategy to your specific needs and situation. She draws greatly on two approaches in particular: the Humanistic therapies and Interpersonal Psychoanalytically-Oriented psychotherapy. Dr. Cox also uses Cognitive-Behavioral techniques.

All of these forms of psychotherapy have a long history of success in eliminating psychological symptoms.

Areas of specialization

Dr. Cox welcomes anyone seeking treatment, but now specializes in treating those who pursue what might be called New Age avenues of exploration, spiritual paths, and those who have found it necessary and/or desirable to follow alternative medicine routes of healing. She believes these respected interests and pursuits must be taken seriously, within the psychotherapy setting, and included, as appropriate, as part of the treatment path. Her orientation, as a psychologist, and her perspective, in providing psychotherapy, is holistic and integrative in nature.
