I am currently a doctoral candidate in Psychology: Consciousness and Society at the University of West Georgia, USA. My dissertation research considers personal experiences of change occurring in three psychotherapeutic modalities: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and Psychoanalysis. I am fascinated by and committed to exploring both the empirical and the philosophical / ethical dimensions of psychotherapy practices. I am also interested in Critical approaches to Psychology, particularly the concept of Psychologization as both an object of critique and a standpoint for examining subjectivity. I completed my B.A. in English Literatures and Cultures from Brown University and my M.A. in Psychology from University of West Georgia.
