Christin J. Fort, Ph.D., M.A. is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Wheaton College. She earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and her M.A. in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary and she is a deeply invested in the integration of psychology and theology. This commitment is demonstrated in the subjects of her teaching, research and clinical practice. Dr. Fort is the Director of Integrative Dialogue at Wheaton College where she serves as a facilitator for cross-disciplinary conversations between departments (i.e. counseling, psychology and MFT) and disciplines (i.e. Psychology and Theology). As a researcher, Dr. Fort is the co-director of the Multicultural Peace and Justice Collaborative, an innovative, collaborative research team that is intentionally multicultural in membership and focus.
As a practitioner, Dr. Fort maintains a thriving and diverse private practice where she specializes in working with racialized minorities and couples. As a practicing psychologist she is honored to walk alongside of clients who struggle to find meaning and purpose in the midst of suffering. This experiential knowledge of the ways that human beings search for, and create, meaning through their experiences of pain serves as a catalyst for her research and offers practical application points for use in academic contexts. When she isn’t working, Dr. Fort loves playing games with her 4 adult siblings, going on road trips, having deep and hilarious conversations and sipping chai tea lattes.
