      Cliff Johannsen BS ’71, MEd ’74 married Linda Newman BA ’71, JD ’90 in 1971, and they were together until Linda died in 2008. This marriage produced two daughters, Brynne and Amelia, and two grandchildren. Since 2011, he has been in a domestic partnership with Elizabeth Toness, whom he plans to marry in 2019. After earning a master’s degree in counseling, Johannsen worked as a group and marriage and family therapist. After earning his doctorate in psychology in 1982, he worked in two forensic hospitals and a community mental health program. Over the years, he has worked as a hospital administrator and a clinical director of wilderness therapy and substance abuse programs. Johannsen has been active in his field’s leadership at the state and national levels since 1989 and has been in private practice since 1995. He occasionally moonlights as a whitewater rafting guide. Although the Rogue is his home river, his favorite rivers to run have been the Middle Fork of the Idaho Salmon and the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. In addition, Johannsen builds and races vintage SAAB automobiles. He also enjoys travel and has visited various locations in North America, Ireland, Scotland, England, Holland, France, Spain, Italy, and Korea. At the time of this writing, he was looking forward to the reunion of the 1968-69 L&C overseas study program to Austria.
