Doctorate in Marriage & Family Therapy, Loma Linda University


Justine D’Arrigo-Patrick earned her Doctorate in Marriage & Family Therapy from Loma Linda University in Southern California. Her dissertation research explored how relational therapists navigate Postmodern and Critical Theories in clinical practice, specifically focusing on how therapists negotiate engaging in therapeutic activism in relation to issues of social justice while simultaneously embracing a postmodern therapeutic stance.  Her clinical and research interests further include multicultural and diversity issues, post-oppositional, postmodern and contemporary family therapy theories and teaching practices. While earning her doctorate, Justine has been an active member of the American Family Therapy Academy (AFTA), serving as the Student Committee Chair and Student Representative to the Board, along with participation in other various academy committees.

Justine grew up in Idyllwild, a tiny mountain town in Southern California. Moving to New Hampshire is a BIG move, and she is excited to explore the Keene/New England area with her wife, Beth, and two mini Aussies, Tucker and Emma. She is an enthusiastic outdoor adventurer, enjoys playing sports, and loves documentary films. She is very excited about joining the Antioch, NE community!”
