Doug Fox, MDiv, Licensed Professional Counselor,
Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

Everyone has trouble making decisions in life as an individual, couple, or family. Doug is committed to helping people work through emotional and relational problems, overcome fears, restore faith, and rediscover hope.

The most common therapeutic model is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). A basic theoretical belief integral to CBT is that your emotions will change if you are able to think and act differently about a problem.

Doug will work with you using CBT techniques to help you rediscover hope through faith to overcome your emotional fears. Faith is an important part of CBT and Acceptance therapy.

An ordained minister, Doug received a Master of Divinity degree from Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan University in 2005.
