Dr. Rox’s Value Driven Approach

“It is not a sign of good health to be well adjusted to a sick society.” ~ J. Krishnamurti

At Acacia Rising Counseling, Dr. Rox offers individual, couple, and family therapy using a strength-based, heart-centered approach grounded in multiple theoretical models, including EMDR, attachment, experiential, emotion-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and systems.

At Acacia Rising Counseling, Dr. Rox believes that each of us is on our own unique journey towards healing and growth, and that her role is to assist clients along this journey, in accordance with their own values, beliefs, goals, and dreams.

At Acacia Rising Counseling, Dr. Rox starts with what is going on for you in the present, and we only go digging in the past when the past is keeping you from reaching your desired dreams. And even then, we don’t start digging until you are fully equipped with the confidence and tools necessary to keep you grounded and safe.

At Acacia Rising Counseling, Dr. Rox understands that all behaviors (including coping and defense strategies) were at one time learned/developed either to protect ourselves, or to get basic core needs met; and that we never develop a coping/protective mechanism that is bigger than what was needed at that time. Therefore, Dr. Rox believes it is paramount to never take away someone’s coping and defense strategy until she has helped them develop a better and more healthy alternative.

At Acacia Rising Counseling, Dr. Rox recognizes that each individual, couple, and family is unique, and works with the entire client system to negotiate a plan that is tailored to meet their needs. Roxanne encourages clients to engage in sessions with friends, relatives, partners, or family members who may be affected by, or can assist with understanding the issue(s).

At Acacia Rising Counseling, Dr. Rox welcomes all compositions of families, and does not discriminate based on age, gender, race, class, culture, or sexual orientation.
