Counseling and Coaching Services
Dr. Cox is available to individuals and families for counseling and coaching. He maintains a private practice in Tiverton, Rhode Island, close to Newport, numerous beaches, and Cape Cod. Primarily he works with children, adolescents, and their families. However, he also sees adults for individual psychotherapy and coaching when he feels he can be helpful.
Child and Adolescent Services, ages 3 and up
Clinical services provide support for academic, behavioral and developmental issues in children and adolescents. Some of the concerns addressed include learning and attention problems (ADHD), executive dysfunction, nonverbal learning disabilities, and social skills development. Clients include those with autism-spectrum disorders (including Asperger’s syndrome), and highly gifted children and teens.
Consultation is offered for parents and schools, with an emphasis on practical strategies that result in immediate measurable improvement in the cognitive capabilities and emotional adjustment of children and teens.
Family, Couples and Individual Therapy
Depression, stress and anxiety, marital problems, family relationships, and parenting are some of the problems that can be addressed in therapy. Dr. Cox has a particular interest in helping couples to improve their communication. In the interest of helping couples, he has specialized in creating a therapeutic environment that is comfortable and effective for both men and women for over a decade.
Brief Therapy and Consultation
Families traveling to Rhode Island may decide to schedule an in-depth evaluation, which will be accompanied by suggestions for strategic intervention. Whenever possible, we will do our best to help you find suitable accommodations. Almost every visitor to scenic Tiverton, Little Compton, and the Sakonnet region is enchanted by its quaint New England atmosphere, and all the area has to offer with respect to recreation, culture and natural attractions.
Dr. Cox also provides Professional Coaching to a small number of private clients. Coaching differs from psychotherapy in both scope and form. The relationship of coach/client is not doctor/patient or teacher/student. Coaching is well suited to clients who are prepared to have a series of discussions about a large theme or important life situation. For many, coaching provides a valuable structure in which to focus goals, develop a viable plan of action, and discuss results honestly. All coaching is conducted by telephone at times of mutual convenience.
