Lara Cox, PsyD, MSW, Psychologist in Washington
Are you ready to make a change in your life? Are you tired of repeating the same self-defeating behaviors? Do you want to learn healthy strategies to manage your current difficulties? I have over 20 years of clinical experience helping individuals lead fuller, more authentic and satisfying lives. My job is to help you gain insight into your conflicts, strengths, past experiences and current relationships so that you can break free of old patterns and find new possibilities. I find it extremely rewarding to watch my clients grow, realize their full potential and make successful changes in their lives.
My style is interactive and my theoretical orientation is psychoanalytic, meaning I believe the past can shape how we perceive the world and act in the present. Gaining insight into outdated thought and behavior patterns can liberate us to have more choices and, ultimately, gain greater control of our lives.
I have been on the faculty of the GWU School of Medicine, the GWU Psy.D. Program and taught at the Washington Baltimore Center for Psychoanalysis and the American School for Professional Psychology. Currently, I am dedicating all of my focus to the individuals and couples I see in my private practice.
