Chair, Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling

Associate Professor of Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling




I joined the Graduate School of Counseling in 2014 and currently serve as an associate professor and chair of the Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling program.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and have a private practice specializing in work with couples from an emotionally focused therapy framework. Prior to George Fox, I worked as an assistant professor and clinical training director at Simpson University, where I specialized in teaching courses on couples therapy and domestic violence, family therapy, and religion, marriage and the family, and internship.

I am an approved supervisor through the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. I hold a PhD in counseling and family therapy from St. Louis University (2009) and a master’s degree in community counseling from Saint Cloud State University (2003).

I regularly publish on topics that include marriage, divorce, remarriage, and attachment. I am a proud introvert who enjoys running and spending time in nature with my supportive husband and our creative and independent young daughter.
