About Deborah Cox | Psychologist | Therapist | Writer


Hello . . . I’m Deborah Cox,¬†psychologist, writer, EMDR therapist, and artist. I work with bright people to help them become more of who they were meant to be.

I love the symphony, the cathedral choir, boy humor, my cats, and the roar of cicadas in the Texas summertime. I also love to write and make multimedia collage. My philosophy: relational justice.

For the past decade, I’ve written about growing up in the Church of Christ, a fundamentalist Christian sect, concentrated in the Southern United States, that silences women. I write about anger, religious abuse, art for healing, and trauma recovery. My new novel,¬†Wife Material, is a semi-autobiographical portrait of all these things.

My psychological research on women’s anger appears in numerous media outlets, such as Salon.com, Reuters Health, and Cosmopolitan – and I co-authored The Anger Advantage (Broadway), a smart self-help guide to women’s emotional empowerment.

I live and practice in Springfield, Missouri, where I own Integrative Family Psychology.

My new office is inside The Bodysmith: 317 E. Walnut, in downtown Springfield.

I’d love to hear from you!
