Erin Guyette, PhD, LMFT

About Dr. Erin Guyette

Hi there! My name is Dr. Erin Guyette, and I am a LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist) and ADR provider. I have a PhD in Family Social Science with a specialization in couple and family therapy from the University of Minnesota. This is a doctoral degree in working with individuals, families, or systems in human services by gaining an understanding of and developing skills in helping people, counseling, and developing human relationships across the lifespan. While challenging at times, I enjoy this work immensely and love being able to help children and families.


I received my Master’s degree in Couple and Family Therapy from Kansas State University and obtained therapy licensure. I am currently an AAMFT supervisor in training providing supervision to pre-licensed therapists.

My research involves families in divorce or separation transitions, therapists working in family law, divorce education, alternative dispute resolution services, and improving therapy services for families experiencing separation/divorce. I have researched for and published in several scholarly journals, was the previous Editorial Assistant for the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, and have been a guest editor for the Journal. I present my work yearly at national conferences to legal and mental health professionals educating on the topics of family law, working with high-conflict families, parent-child relationships, boundary ambiguity, and the impact of divorce on children.


I am a Qualified Neutral under Rule 114 in the State of Minnesota to provide alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services.

I am a member of the Minnesota Chapter of the Association of Family Conciliation Courts (AFCC) and part of the education and training committees. I am also a member of the Minnesota Collaborative Law Institute, the Minnesota Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, and the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy.


I have dedicated my 10-year educational career to research, knowledge, and working as a mental health professional with families in divorce, separation, and family law-related matters.
