I feel very lucky to have Lakawthra as my therapist. She is kind, patient and exactly what I needed. I look forward to my sessions with her.

Great and effective communication!

Written on Nov 15, 2023 after therapy with Lakawthra for 3 months on issues concerning relationship

We started working with Lakawthra after trying couples therapy with 2 other therapists. By that point we had a "therapy fatigue" because we couldn't find the right match. So we agreed with my partner that if we don't find a therapist who is right for us we will quit therapy. That's when we met Lakawthra. She is a highly professional therapist, very attentive, punctual, and has a great understanding of the cultural differences we face with my partner, which is important as we are an interracial couple from two different countries. We are beyond happy with her work! We feel a significant improvement in our communication and conflict resolution skills. I particularly like how our sessions are structured: she dedicates enough time to discuss the issues we faced during the week, to introduce us to a certain skill, and to help us practice that skill. She also gives homework, which helps as well. She is also a very pleasant person to interact with. Working with her feels comfortable. She is always impartial but also very understanding. We are absolutely happy with our sessions and will continue our therapy.

I have been working with Dr. Lakawthra Cox for close to a year and have found her approach to therapy immensely helpful. She has helped me develop critical life skills, teaching me both the theory behind the skill and how to practically apply it to my personal situation. I have made so much progress towards my goals of improving my stress management and coping skills. She is an utmost professional who listens carefully and works patiently with her clients through their challenges. I also love that she practices what she preaches. I highly recommend working with Dr. Lakawthra Cox if you want to develop life skills that will help you stop the cycle of suffering and to feel empowered and confident.

Working with Lakawthra was a lovely experience. The tools she gave me truly did help so much in my journey to feeling better. Her system is very orderly and I believe that it works for many different kinds of people. She was very knowledgeable about the concepts she presented to me, and she made them easy to understand and practice :)

Dr. Cox helped me overcoming some of the obstacles that had me hold back for most of my life. I thought I would never be able overcome my grief but with their help I managed to find a way to cope without damaging who I am. We peeled layer after layer and addressed all of my concerns and fears. Even though English is not my first language Dr. Cox is understanding and sympathetic and a very good listener. I’m forever thankful for all the progress they managed to make me do in less than a year!
