Dr. Louis D. Cox is a Management Consultant and a licensed Clinical Psychologist who has been practicing for forty years. His areas of expertise include the following:


High Performance Team Development

Dr. Cox has consulted to different types of teams, such as executive teams, management teams, musical bands, and community organizing teams around developing and maintaining high performance strategies. He has developed simple but transforming team communication formats for teams which allow them to keep a strong connection to the team's collective skills, intelligence, and creativity and to circumvent the barriers to maintaining authentic team communication. This results in sustained high performance. Clients have included The Disney Corporation, AT&T, American Airlines, Sony Corporation, International Creative Management, Big Foote, as well as numerous successful rock and roll bands, including Aerosmith, REM, and BonJovi. He is a consultant member of the Society for Organizational Learning.

Alcoholism and Addiction

Dr. Cox is an expert in the area of alcoholism and addictions. He is experienced in the technique known as “intervention” which is designed to enable a family group or business colleagues to deal effectively with the insidious and destructive power of addictive disorders. The goal of the intervention process is for both the addicted person and those key people around him/her to move decisively toward a more healthful, empowered, and authentic way of being. He is a certified member of the Association of Intervention Specialists.

Psychotherapy

Dr. Cox is trained in a variety of psychotherapeutic techniques including psychoanalysis, Gestalt therapy, Psychodrama, and cognitive therapy. Through both individual and group sessions he assists his clients release the mental, emotional, and spiritual limitations set on them by faulty parenting, education and socialization, and through this release to increasingly access their authentic self. Depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, shame reduction, and anger management are examples of issues addressed in Dr. Cox’ practice. Dr. Cox also supervises other therapists in their practice of psychotherapy.




Publications:
