Kathy Fox (she/her)
Marriage and Family Therapy Intern
Kathy is a second-year student in the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Touro University Worldwide. She expects to graduate with her MA-MFT in spring 2024 and then pursue licensure in the state of Iowa. She is bilingual and offers counseling in both English and Spanish.
Kathy works with individuals (adolescents and adults of all ages), couples, and families. Kathy welcomes them with compassion as they navigate relationship issues, grief and loss, a major change or transition, or other challenging life experience. Kathy’s approach is integrative and client-centered; she draws largely from psychodynamic and parts therapies to help clients explore their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors and collaborates with them to set and reach goals for therapy. She especially enjoys helping couples manage conflict better, increase intimacy and friendship, and create shared meaning.
Kathy has completed Level 1 and Level 2 of Gottman Method Couples Therapy, as well as training in Motivational Interviewing, Grief/Complicated Grief Therapy, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
For two decades, Kathy taught and advised college students, then worked as a freelance translator and interpreter. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from St. Ambrose University and three degrees in Spanish/Hispanic Studies (B.A. Iowa State University; M.A. University of Florida; Ph.D. University of Illinois).
Kathy is a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT).
