My name is Tamie Cox and I have been in the medical field for about 26 years working in hospitals and long-term care medical facilities as a respiratory therapist. I returned to school to begin a new career as a Professional Clinical Counselor where I can bring my medical knowledge, health coaching, and counseling experience to help people in a new and more fulfilling way.
My life has been about serving others and continuing to educate myself in many different areas to help people in a more holistic manner that addresses concerns of the mind and body to bring them into better alignment. According to Bessel Van Der Kolk, MD “The Body Keeps the Score”. Meaning that our experiences can be held in the body and express itself in our mental and physical health.
One of my favorite writers is Brene Brown and a quote of hers that resonates with me is “Only when we’re brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light”. Counseling is a safe space where you can explore that darkness with an understanding person that wants nothing more than to help you reach that infinite power and radiate that light.
As a counselor it is important to listen and meet you where you are at in a safe and supportive environment. My Goal is to support clients in exploring their past and present to uncover unhealthy patterns that may cause distress and stops them from creating the changes they seek. We will collaborate together to create strategies and solutions based on a holistic, cognitive, and psychodynamic approach that supports you in meeting your personal and professional goals, as well as creating lasting change in your life.
I have a Masters in Mental Health Counseling and a Certificate in Systemic Couple and Family Therapy from Capella University. I also have an Associates and Bachelor’s in Respiratory Therapy, and a Certificate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition-Health Coach.
I work under the clinical supervision of Carmen Isais, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #115123
