Dr. Melody Foxx’s career as a radio personality, started in her teens through her early 30’s, working from Mississippi to Los Angeles, with a few cities in between. After several music format shows that incorporated music, dedications, and talking to people who were either crying, loving, or leaving, she wanted to know how to better help people to be in healthier relationships and creating a happier life for themselves, than just giving her opinion and playing a record for them.
Dr. Foxx, went back to school and eventually received her Masters in Counseling Psychology in 1996 and her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2002 and currently is a California Licensed Psychologist and Marriage and Family Therapist. Dr. Foxx has worked for several non-profit organizations, not only working with adults, but the last 14 years focusing on teenagers, children and their families, including high-risk youth in the justice system, foster care, and in group homes.
