My name is Latressia Cox (she/her/hers) and I am a current Master of Social Work student at Walden University. I have previously received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Saint Leo University. Prior to that, I attended Santa Fe College for my Associates degree in psychology.
My current clinical experience includes working with children and families within the child welfare system, child development care coordination, case management and advocacy for children requiring Guardian ad litem, and some experience with ABA therapy for children with Autism and ADHD.
I have always been intrigued with how the mind works and why certain experiences cause certain reactions and behaviors. After studying behaviors and how the human mind works, I wanted to do what I could to help others work through experiences and challenges they may have, which is what led me to clinical social work.
My approach to counseling is client-centered and humanistic. I believe that every individual is unique in their own way and therefore will have a unique way of coping and healing. Depending on where a person is in the healing process, they may need encouragement to talk and work through a difficult topic or they may need a listening ear until they get to that point.
My goal as a counselor is to meet each client where they are, and work with them to achieve their therapeutic goal. I also strive to provide a safe, judgement free, therapy experience for all.
