About Tyler:

Tyler was born and raised here in Utah and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Southern Utah University. After graduating, he was accepted to Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, where he earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Counseling.

Before coming to Families First Pediatrics, Tyler spent 14 years working with kids in residential care. He specializes in working with kids with autism and teens struggling with substance abuse, trauma, strained family relationships, anxiety, depression, self-harm, and suicidal ideation. More importantly than all of that, he genuinely cares about your kids and about your family. He believes that success for the individual often relies on and extends to the family, and working together is the best way to make significant progress.

Tyler is a behavior specialist with training and certifications in Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and trauma-focused Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). When not at work, Tyler loves spending time with his wife and four children, golfing, reading and playing video games.

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.
