Faculty & Staff

One of our department's biggest strengths is our faculty. The members of Lipscomb University's faculty are highly-qualified professors and working clinicians with a variety of professional and educational backgrounds. The core faculty consists of doctoral-level professors representing the areas of counseling, family therapy, clinical psychology, health psychology, neuroscience, child development and cognitive psychology. They have won a number of awards for teaching and advising: six Outstanding Teacher awards, two Baker Awards, and two Outstanding Advisor Awards. The department supplements this group with several excellent part-time and visiting faculty members who are experts in their fields.

All bios are sorted alphabetically.
