Associate Professor of Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling

Director, Marriage, Couple, Family Program




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

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.
