Jerry Cox, LPC

No judgment or phony psychobabble. Jerry is about authenticity, insight, and empowerment. There are utilities inside of us that lead us toward growth. Sometimes we lose sight of our own capacities. Jerry is excellent at helping people use those utilities to take charge of their lives. Life should not be about coping; it should be about possibilities!​
