Kacy Mixon, PhD, LMFT is an Assistant Professor in the Marriage and Family Therapy Dept. at Valdosta State University where she teaches and provides clinical supervision to therapists-in-training. Kacy also is the Project Director for the Family Development concentration of the Military Families Learning Network (MFLN); a Dept. of Defense/USDA funded initiative aimed to provide professional development opportunities for mental health clinicians and advocates working with military families. As a licensed marriage and family therapist (AAMFT clinical fellow), Kacy has worked with families from all walks of life. Her trainings, presentations and courses, however, focus primarily on family violence, trauma, military families, and foster-care transitions. Kacy has been the recipient of honors such as the Chi Sigma Iota (counseling honor society) 2012-2013 Leadership Fellowship. Her former grant work included the Safe Start Project, a joint research endeavor by RAND Corporation and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), which funded treatment programs aimed at reducing negative impacts of violence on children. Kacy’s research endeavors currently focus on military families resilience as well as low-income family resilience factors connected to children’s success.
