The Minority Fellowship Program is pleased to present the first official Mentor of the Year award to Dr. Phillip Greenwood. Dr. Greenwood's experience as an MFT spans a 26-year career as a family therapist on the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry acute care unit at Virginia Baptist Hospital in Lynchburg, VA. He retired in 2013. His passion for marriage and family therapy led him to serve as an AAMFT Minority Fellowship Mentor during the 2016-2017 term, as he was eager to help students and young professionals learn and grow in the profession.
Dr. Greenwood joined AAMFT as a student member in 1978. As a Clinical Fellow, he served on the Board of Directors of the Virginia Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (VAMFT) from 1993 to 2017. After being in the field for many years, he decided to use his expertise and wealth of knowledge to serve as a mentor for the MFP. The Minority Fellowship Program is grateful for Dr. Greenwood's time and investment in the program and the fellows. The MFP Fellows and staff have unanimously agreed that Dr. Greenwood’s approach to mentorship has created a lasting impact. Dr. Greenwood is excited to continue serving as a mentor.
