Mission Statement

Cox Romain Psychological Services, LLC was founded by Lisa Romain in 2013.  It is an affiliate of Cox Romain Walker Divorce Mediation and New Beginnings and New Hope. 

Dr. Lisa Cox Romain has worked on marriage and family issues since 1994 and organizational concerns since 1999.  She has known about marriage, couple, and family issues, and organizational concerns since she was in graduate school.  She holds a strong belief of integrity, restoration, equity and fair treatment and that belief has dominated her philosophy in and throughout her life.  After working as a community college counselor and professor, an organizational psychologist, and psychotherapist, then working with colleagues and couples in conflict, Dr. Lisa was perplexed with how many people she knew who had encountered conflict and were unable to make healthy decisions in their lifetime-especially while in intimate relationships or addressing organizational concerns.  Each and every story and experience resonated with Dr. Lisa, as she too, owns several businesses and has worked in higher education for over 27 years.

Cox Romain Psychological Services strives to empower organizations and people to fully address issues that prevent organizational and personal success.

The goal is to empower organizations and individuals in developing or achieving goals that lead to success.
