These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Lakawthra Cox. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.

Written on Nov 15, 2023 after therapy with Lakawthra for 3 months on issues concerning relationship

We started working with Lakawthra after trying couples therapy with 2 other therapists. By that point we had a "therapy fatigue" because we couldn't find the right match. So we agreed with my partner that if we don't find a therapist who is right for us we will quit therapy. That's when we met Lakawthra. She is a highly professional therapist, very attentive, punctual, and has a great understanding of the cultural differences we face with my partner, which is important as we are an interracial couple from two different countries. We are beyond happy with her work! We feel a significant improvement in our communication and conflict resolution skills. I particularly like how our sessions are structured: she dedicates enough time to discuss the issues we faced during the week, to introduce us to a certain skill, and to help us practice that skill. She also gives homework, which helps as well. She is also a very pleasant person to interact with. Working with her feels comfortable. She is always impartial but also very understanding. We are absolutely happy with our sessions and will continue our therapy.

Lakawthra is a great professional! She listens well and has wonderful insight on relationships. We’d recommend her to anyone!

This therapist gets us. She's punctual in her replies, offers a variety of ways to help us, and is really present with us during our sessions. I'm hopeful that things will get better in our relationship and I could not recommend her more!

Work with me!
