Dr. Tiffany Brown is a Senior Lecturer and Clinical Director in the Couples and Family Therapy graduate program. She is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist as well as a clinical fellow and Approved Aupervisor with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and the State of Oregon (OBLPCT).

Brown received specialized training in addiction and recovery through the Center for the Study of Addiction and Recovery at Texas Tech University as part of her doctoral studies. During this time she trained with one of first collegiate recovery programs (CRP) in the country. CRP's are evidence-based campus programs for substance use and recovery issues in the collegiate population. In addition, Brown served as a trauma specialist and family therapist at a residential treatment center for substance use. She is committed to providing advocacy for people in recovery in hopes to shift the social stigma attached to substance use issues. Brown’s clinical experience includes self-harm education, prevention, and intervention; the family dynamics of substance use and recovery; grief and loss; pediatric cancer; and collegiate recovery. In addition, she regularly consults with schools and community programs regarding best practices for screening and intervening with individuals struggling with self-harming behaviors.

Locally, Brown currently serves on the executive board for Ophelia's Place and is the advisory board chair for Courageous Kids. Brown previously served as a board member with the Oregon Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (OAMFT) and as the treasurer of the Association of Recovery in Higher Education (ARHE), a national board aimed at providing the education, resources, and community connection needed to help change the trajectory of recovering student’s lives.
