Barbara Cox, Ph.D.
Health Psychologist and Advisor at Dr. Cox Consulting
Barbara Cox, Ph.D. is a consulting psychologist and coach. She started her career as a scientist, having graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a B.A. in Biology. Before entering the world of psychology and consulting, her first passion was as environmental health science. Most notably, she organized environmental projects for the Department of Defense (DOD) and private environmental consulting firms. She went on to receive a doctorate in health psychology from Alliant International University (AIU), with further training in hypnosis, intuition, and peak performance coaching.
Dr. Cox loved managing large-scale projects; however, she wanted to get involved in more 'people' work. Her inner-academic ventured forth to study the emerging field of health psychology, looking at the intersection of science and spirituality. Because of her background, Barbara really enjoys working with clients and organizations who consider themselves grounded and logical intellectuals, but who are open to explore and grow their intuitive side or want to use intuitive, right-brained tools to complete important projects.
Dr. Cox's psychology and coaching work has been featured in diverse media – from MSN.com to Cosmopolitan Magazine to Psychosomatic Medicine. She works with groups and individuals that are looking not just to talk to someone, but those looking for guidance, for solutions, and for change. Dr. Cox also offers audio therapy.
