Christians & Boundaries with Simone Cox, LMFT

June 28, 2018

Today’s episode is special because I’m talking about spirituality in marriage. I usually don’t talk about spirituality (although I am a Christian) because I like to stay more practical while giving tools for a happy and healthy marriage but I receive so many requests from my audience about this topic so I want to honor that and discuss Christians and Boundaries. I’m joined by Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and my mentor, Simone Cox, and she gives us a balanced perspective about how to set limits for ourselves while walking out our Christian lives. You’ll learn:

  • How the concept of submission is used to manipulate people
  • Which pastors to receive marriage advice from
  • How to set boundaries with your parents (as an adult)
  • How to set boundaries if you’re experiencing the 3 “A’s” in your marriage (Affair, Addiction, Abuse)

Simone Cox is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia.  She is a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC).  She is passionate about serving others. 

Simone offers counseling services, workshops, presentations and employee training on subjects including stress management, work/life balance, budgeting and blending families.  Please contact Simone to discuss additional topics for your event.

Simone holds a faculty position at Point University.  She also has a MBA with over a decade of business experience.  Simone is happily married and the couple has two sons, a beautiful daughter-in-love and three wonderful grandchildren.  The family enjoys going to the beach, watching movies, socializing with friends and reading.
