About Candace:

Candace was born and raised in Southern California but has seen a lot of the world as a member of the United States Air Force. While in the military, Candace traveled over the United States and United Kingdom, met the person she would marry, had five children, and was inspired to pursue a career working with kids and families.

She earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California in 2014, with a major in mental health and a minor in military lifestyle. She is a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Utah with experience working with kids and adults individually, in pairs, and in groups. She is trained in treating trauma, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, attachment disorders, complicated grief, OCD, bi-polar, personality disorders, neurological development deficits/delays, parenting skills, body image, and more.

Having grown up in a blended family and traveled all over the world as an adult, Candace appreciates the unique experiences each individual brings to their own care. With that in mind, Candace strives to create space for each client to feel safe and supported, regardless of religious, ethnic, cultural, sexual, or gender orientation.

Parent Feedback

Who would you trust with your 1 pound baby? What about your nine year old son or perhaps your four year old daughter with ADHD? I highly recommend Families First Pediatrics. We have seen several of their providers but have been a patient of Dr. Cox since 2011. He is very attentive, professional, caring and has always taken EXCELLENT care of our children. The office staff is friendly and caring and even the billing office is amazing. 😂. The office generally has same-day appointments available in emergencies which I have needed to use several times over the years. The office has also become very automated and up-to-date with their technology and communication abilities. I feel grateful to have such a AMAZING pediatricians office following my children’s health. It’s nice to know we have knowledgeable, professional and caring doctors who have never let us down in 13 years. Thank you so much family first especially Dr. Cox.
